If you’re searching for more information about memory care, you’re not alone. Dementia, a syndrome in which there is deterioration in cognitive functioning beyond the usual aging process, affects more than 55 million people worldwide. If you’re looking for answers, you may have noticed some of the following signs:
- Changes in mood, behavior, or motivation for no apparent reason
- Asking the same questions repeatedly
- Forgetting common words when speaking
- Mixing up words; for example, saying “bed” instead of “table”
- Taking longer to complete familiar tasks like following a recipe
- Misplacing items in inappropriate places, such as putting a wallet in a kitchen drawer
- Getting lost while walking or driving in a familiar area
If mom or dad’s normal habits and behaviors have been impacted, or if there’s been a recent diagnosis with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it may be time to consider memory care.

What sets us apart from other memory care facilities is our Connections program.
The Connections program was founded by Pegasus Senior Living’s Health and Wellness Consultant, Dr. Sandra Petersen. After suffering a stroke, her journey back to recovery involved neuroplasticity treatments, leading her to learn new languages and activities. Her own treatment gave her insight to apply these techniques to our signature memory care services. We offer:
- Modern therapeutic treatments
- Brain growth through neuroplasticity
- Personalized engagement
- Individualized care programs
- Purposeful programming in a secure and consistent environment
