Certified Memory Care
Alzheimer’s and related dementias steal parts of our loved ones, but who they are and who they have been remains deeply rooted. Our Alzheimer’s/dementia program is a Certified Dementia Special Care unit as designated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
Forestview Memory Care Neighborhood
Our specialized memory care program focuses on each of our residents as individuals, respecting their personal histories, preferences and routines for the best possible quality of life. Our 41-bed unit features furnished spacious private and semi-private rooms, with plenty of room for familiar furniture from home.
Memory Care Lifestyle
At Linda Manor Extended Care, we follow the habilitation approach to memory care, joining residents within their reality for happier, more successful days. Our program is led by a certified dementia practitioner and offers opportunities for engagement and connection seven days a week.
