Often those living with memory loss experience confusion, anxiety and fear. To address those challenges, the MSC features a low ratio of caregivers to residents who have all been trained extensively in the world recognized Best Friends™ approach. This approach takes advantage of the small household layout of the building, dedicated staffing, and unobtrusive technological monitoring system to ease resident’s tension and anxiety. In addition, the MSC is the only free standing facility dedicated to memory impaired residents that can also provide the full continuum of services from adult day to skilled nursing at nearby .
