Memory support with a gentle touch
MEMORY SUPPORT AT WHITRIDGE
WITH A GENTLE TOUCH FOR YOUR LOVED ONES
The Whitridge residence is home to residents who receive memory care in a peaceful, safe, and secure atmosphere. They are encouraged to take part in activities organized by a full-time specially trained therapeutic recreation professional. Both private and semi-private rooms are available and several common rooms, including Whitridge Dining Room and its adjoining enclosed patio, are light-filled and cheerful.
Whitridge is also home to the Snoezelen (SNOOZ-a-lin) Room, which offers innovative multi-sensory environmental therapy to help decrease pain, improve the overall sense of well-being, reduce feelings of sadness and fear, and improve sleep habits. It incorporates aromatherapy, color, and motion, and calming music or nature sounds that can be enjoyed regardless of physical or cognitive ability.

Nurtured and Thriving with Whitridge RESIDENCE
Linda Orlowski, LCSW
Director of Social Work
When a family member suffers from cognitive loss it can often be quite emotionally taxing. I spend quite a bit of time with siblings and children alleviating the guilt associated with making a decision to move their loved one to a memory care residence.
The truth is most residents thrive when they make the transition from traditional home living to our memory care residence. We often refer to it as a judgment-free zone! Residents of Whitridge are in an environment that is no longer stressful, they aren't judged for not remembering, for repeating themselves, or for stumbling.
Memory care becomes magical because residents feel on many levels whole again. Our highly trained staff nurture them with music and art therapies, and we even have a weekly cooking program that has become very popular among Whitridge residents and our staff.
Memory care isn't a sentence, it's a lifeline that allows people with cognitive loss to thrive in so many ways.
