How We Care for Residents with Alzheimer’s
Our approach to Alzheimer’s care is multidimensional and designed to enhance the quality of life for residents at all stages of the disease. Our approach to care is multifaceted focusing on physical health and safety, cognitive stimulation, emotional well-being, and social engagement while maintaining a sense of dignity and self-worth for each individual we serve.
Our well-trained care team understands the challenges that Alzheimer’s disease presents. From communicating effectively, responsive behavior management, and creating structured, our predictable environments foster feelings of security and well-being. Our team is also trained to recognize and respond to changes in the physical and cognitive health of our residents, allowing for the adaptation of fluid care plans as the disease progresses.
Our Athens GA Community
Our memory care communities are thoughtfully and specifically designed to accommodate the unique needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. This includes clear and simple layouts to prevent confusion, secure and monitored spaces to prevent elopement, and areas for residents to engage safely in activities both indoor and outdoor.
Surrounded by 11 acres of hardwoods and the natural beauty of Athens, GA, our community integrates design elements that are purposefully crafted to support the unique needs of those with dementia.

Each element contributes to creating a serene, comfortable environment that makes our residents feel at home.
Our Staff Treat Your Loved One Like Family
We understand the importance of emotional well-being in Alzheimer’s care. Our dedicated staff takes the time to get to know each resident personally, to understand their history, their likes and dislikes, and their personal story. This approach allows us to provide emotional support that is tailored to each individual, and foster a deep connection that contributes to the overall well-being of our residents. We provide our residents with plenty of opportunities that enhance their quality of life.
Social engagement is a key component of our Alzheimer’s care approach. We encourage interactions through group activities, communal dining, and shared experiences, providing opportunities for friendship and a sense of community.
Nutrition plays a critical role in maintaining overall health. Our on-site chefs prepare nutritious, appealing meals, considering dietary needs and personal preferences.

At Haven Memory Care we have partnered with Transitional Care Physicians of America. There is a 24/7 accessible portal to track your loved one’s medical records. They have a 30 minute required response time for any medial issue we may contact them about. Most all needs are met on site with only emergent medical events requiring off site transportation. The list of medical needs is quite extensive so feel free to contact us to determine if specific needs can be met in our community.
Family support is fundamental to our care philosophy. We maintain regular communication with families about their loved ones’ well-being and progress. We also provide education and resources for families to understand Alzheimer’s disease and learn strategies to communicate and connect with their loved ones. Resident family-led support groups as well as staff-led support groups are offered at Haven Memory Care.
