The Ingleside Difference

We understand the difficulties that arrive with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Our experience with helping individuals and their families forms the background of our knowledge and compassionate response to those who may find themselves on this challenging road.

In the beginning stages of the disease, individuals are often cared for at home. As time passes, caregivers may reach out to other family members, neighbors or friends to help fill in where needed. Outside home services may be brought in or day centers could be utilized. But as the illness continues to progress, the day most likely will come when the help of trained professionals, programs and residential care will be needed. Do you know which type of community can provide the best lifestyle for your loved one?

At Ingleside Memory Support Assisted Living, we can help.

What is the Ingleside Difference?

We offer memory support assisted living with meaning. You’ll find our communities to be inclusive and diverse, using a person-directed approach that results in empowering our residents to experience a fully engaged life.

Our team members are specially trained to have a greater understanding of cognitive challenges, how to care for specific needs, manage challenging situations and communicate effectively in order to create a positive experience whenever possible. At Ingleside, we educate our staff in the best practices in memory care. Our focus is on emphasizing a person-directed approach that honors each individual, recognizes their lifestyle and celebrates their personal story.
