Memory Care & Dementia Care in Parker

The Path to the Present

Alzheimer’s disease not only robs an individual of a sense of self; it also prematurely robs families of their quality time together. Families who are struggling to care for their loved one often find that they can no longer cope with the everyday stress associated with this challenge. They are searching for someone who will take the time to listen and respond to their unique needs and offer an environment that provides security and support. 

Spectrum Retirement’s The Path to the PresentSM program is for those residents with moderate- to late-stage dementia. This program offers a unique and highly effective approach to dementia care, and seeks to understand and align the paths of the individual, family, and the caregivers.

With a strong emphasis on the individual, we create an environment that caters to one’s personality, core values, and personal preferences. By knowing each Memory Care resident on a personal level, we foster a high level of trust that directly promotes physical and emotional comfort. We constantly celebrate each individual’s past while recognizing his or her current potential.
