Why is it called memory care?

Memory care is assisted living for people living with a form of memory loss. Residents benefit from access to specially trained care associates, outdoor exercise, daily memory enhancing activities, relaxing amenities, and the Connections program.

The Connections Program

Pegasus Senior Living Senior Health and Wellness Consultant Dr. Sandra Petersen inspired the Connections program which works to slow the memory loss process while providing purposeful engagement and daily socialization.

Dr. Petersen’s experience with a stroke inspired her to explore the power of neuroplasticity to build new neural pathways around the damaged brain sections of people with a form of dementia. With the Connections program, you can expect the following for your loved one, daily:

Engaging the Emotions

Encouraging Movement
