To learn more about Monterey’s Memory Care Programs…
Two Optalis care communities, Monterey and West Park offer memory care programs for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Although most individuals with dementia experience memory loss, increased confusion, and difficulty communicating and carrying out everyday tasks, it’s important to recognize that no two cases of Alzheimer’s or dementia are exactly alike. They affect people in different ways, which is why we provide a personalized plan of care for each resident.
Safe, Secure Environment and Specialized Memory Care Programming
Both Memory Care at West Park and Memory Care at Monterey provides a secure environment that allows each resident to feel safe, independent, and comfortable. Our program offers a unique and effective approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care and was started in 1992 by Tricia Bingham, who is currently the Director of Programs and Services at the Alzheimer’s Association Central Ohio Chapter.
Specialized programming offers residents a variety of structured activities throughout the day, which minimizes anxiety and agitation. An enclosed courtyard provides security while social engagement promotes emotional support. Our compassionate staff members understand the needs of residents experiencing memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia.
