Intimate Design Exclusively to Benefit Those with Memory Loss

The foundation of our memory care program is to enhance abilities. We believe in a less inhibiting approach to care . . . The Atwater provides an environment that encourages openness and choice. Our design and approach, coupled with cutting-edge technology, empowers residents to lead an engaging and fulfilling lifestyle in a secure, barrier-free environment. Our person-centered approach and our small, personal setting allow residents to live each day in a stimulating environment best suited to their individual needs. Designed exclusively for those with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, our unique neighborhood features:

Safe Outdoor Areas

A balcony area off the living room that brings sun and nature to the residents . . . imagine bird feeders, a large planter for gardening, the scent of fresh herbs and so much more . . .


Lovely gardens and walking trails so residents can enjoy the outdoors with their Care Partners.

Quiet Room

A calming, multisensory Quiet Room offers gentle stimulation of the senses. Alzheimer’s research shows this type of program helps residents with dementia talk more spontaneously, relate better to others, do more from their own initiative, be happier, more active and more alert.

Private Suites

23 private and deluxe suites featuring all the latest safety and technology.

Touches of Home

Residents bring their own furniture and linens to make their suites feel like their own, familiar home.

Fitness Center

Fitness, physical activity and therapy take place in a sunny, inviting fitness area designed for safe, yet challenging, therapeutic exercise. Equipment and programs are designed by McLean Rehabilitation experts who develop personalized exercise programs for each individual.
