A Place to Call Home
At the Villas of Guerin Woods, our deepest wish is for our Residents to feel truly at home. Everyone has the opportunity to decorate and furnish their own rooms as they wish, surrounding themselves with familiar and treasured belongings. Meals are prepared in each Villa, and if they choose, Residents may help with meal preparation and other chores in which they have an interest.

Memory Care

Memory Care
Dementia and memory loss bring a deep sense that something precious is slipping away — both for the Resident who is experiencing it and for their loved ones. The Memory Care program at The Villas of Guerin Woods is unique in many ways, but primarily in its focus on their unique strengths and interests that remain rather than on what has been lost.

Every Resident has his or her own beautiful story, written over the course of a lifetime. We believe passionately in continuing that story for those who are experiencing memory loss, creating a joyful and meaningful life with each new day. Here, Residents are recognized and treated as the unique individuals they are.

Delight By Design
Guerin Woods Memory Care is deeply-rooted in nurturing the core psychological needs of each Resident. Because Residents with memory loss are coping with a debilitating disease, we provide frequent praise, encouragement, opportunities for success, specialized approaches, and at all times, a profound respect for their personhood.

Our specially-trained caregivers communicate with sensitivity and empathy to validate the feelings and identity of each Resident. This diminishes the isolation and loneliness so often experienced by those with dementia. We also recognize that behaviors are a form of communication, and so we seek to understand those messages as well.

A Partnership of Care
Much memory care today employs disease-focused thinking, which accentuates disabilities and personal deficits. Guerin Woods creates a strength-based plan of care for each Resident that looks beyond limitations to abilities.

Families are always welcome, and if visiting during meals, are always offered a place at the table. We value family involvement and consider them essential collaborators. Families and friends of Residents with memory loss are offered education to enhance their understanding of dementia, offer consolation and hope, and teach techniques of communication that will help them connect with and share their loved ones’ reality.

Planned events allow families and Residents, including those in the larger community, to enjoy enriching activities together with others who appreciate and understand the exigencies of dementia.

Celebrating Life
The present moment is vital to the Resident with memory loss, and so a celebration of life permeates our Memory Care Villa every day. We not only rejoice on special occasions, but also affirm through words, actions and smiles that every moment of life is intrinsically joyful. Because unstructured time is meaningless to Residents with dementia, we work to provide a consistent, meaningful and life enhancing routine each day.

Music resonates deeply for those with memory loss. Music and Memory is a personalized music therapy program that taps deep memories not lost to dementia. This brings Residents joy, enhances self-awareness of identity, increases cooperation and attention, reduces resistance to care and offers a viable alternative to antipsychotic medications to manage sun-downing and behaviors.


Deciding to move a loved one to a long-term care facility can be difficult. Choosing the right skilled nursing center presents yet another challenge. At Guerin Woods, families can be confident in our commitment to caring for our residents with compassion and respect, while preserving their dignity and independence. We are proud to provide a warm, respectful atmosphere while encouraging our resident’s families participation and involvement.
