Personalized Levels of Memory Care is Helping Antelope Valley Seniors
If your loved one is one of the 690,000 people living in California with memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, you’re likely already acting as their caretaker. Over 1.1 million family members care for someone with the most common form of dementia.
Data-based memory care can be a resource for families in this position. This form of Alzheimer’s and dementia care is now open at the Lancaster senior living community at The Havens at Antelope Valley. Connections is the signature memory support program now available in northern Los Angeles County.
No two journeys through dementia are the same. Everyone will require different levels of memory care for varying stages of dementia. Connections offers personalized care services in addition to modern therapies.
What is memory care?
Memory care is a type of long-term care that provides purposeful support for older adults with memory loss due to:
- Parkinson’s dementia
- Vascular dementia
- Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease
- Lewy body dementia
- Frontotemporal dementia
- Mixed dementia
Alzheimer’s and dementia care assists with activities of daily living, such as:
- Bathing and dressing
- Hygiene and personal care
- Medication management
- Eating and meal preparation
- Mobility and transfer support
The atmosphere of a memory care community is much more intimate than a typical nursing home. Staff is specially trained to meet the unique needs of those with cognitive issues and provide 24-hour assistance if necessary. An array of amenities like sensory gardens, group activities, and exercise classes keep residents engaged and make life fulfilling.
Memory care services provide welcome relief for family members of those with dementia. They offer specialized care that family members can trust. This benefit can take a weight off the family caregivers’ shoulders. This specialized form of senior living allows families to spend more time together, focusing on positive experiences.
This type of senior care is often referred to as a memory care facility or dementia care unit. However, we are a memory care community at The Havens at Antelope Valley. Building community through Connections is essential to our mission.

Our new Alzheimer’s and dementia care neighborhood offers a soothing and secure environment for loved ones. The Connections program offers data-based treatments rooted in the experience of a doctor.
Pegasus Senior Living Senior VP of Health and Wellness, Dr. Sandra Petersen, lost mobility in the left side of her body and experienced memory loss following a stroke.
She regained mobility and memory by working with brain health specialists who encouraged a process called neuroplasticity. She was able to rebuild her neural network by exploring new body movements and brain challenges.
Creating new neural pathways around the damaged sections of the brain is not a new idea for stroke patients. However, it inspired Dr. Petersen to explore its effects on people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Residents can live with honor and purpose while operating independently at their pace. Loved ones benefit from:
- An individualized care plan
- Bathing, grooming, and dressing assistance
- Housekeeping and laundry services
- Scheduled transportation for medical appointments
- Brain-healthy meals
The Connections program emphasizes socialization, exercise, and creative brain challenges. These daily routines can slow memory loss. Relief from depression and anxiety is also the goal of our specialized service.
Our dementia care specialists are Connections Academy graduates. These team members understand the unique challenges of living with memory loss. Loved ones in our care can expect personalized experiences that improve their quality of life.
