We treasure our Memory Care senior citizens and work with each to create satisfying community experiences daily that align with their abilities and desires.

Riverview Memory Care for Your Loved One!

Memory Care with personal care! Live effortlessly at Twin Creeks in the heart of Riverview. A Specially Designed Memory Care Community.

Twin Creeks residents with memory-related illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, feel secure in our specially designed memory care community.

A private, secure outdoor courtyard is filled with beautiful gardens and planters for the residents to enjoy and use.

The Resident Life Coordinator

Our Resident Life Coordinator gets to personally know each of our residents. This includes personal history, previous and current interests, and their abilities. Our coordinator then works with our specially trained staff to create an individualized wellness program that provides not only intellectual stimulation but also gives opportunities to reminisce about past careers, relationships, and family life.

Common Areas Designed for the Residents.

Our common areas have been designed to implement the programs suggested by the RLC. Twin Creeks has special common area rooms designed for residents to “putter”—an activity to help stimulate the brain, bringing back those past career and family life memories.

For example, a gentleman who worked as an engineer might enjoy putting things together and taking them apart again. We will provide an area for him to fasten buckles and locks so he can continue to use his hands. A lady who has spent her life keeping an impeccable home might enjoy re-arranging and organizing our wardrobe full of linens and towels.

Memory Care Frequently Asked Questions

Simply put, if you are asking the question, it might already be time. There are clear things that make the timing more urgent:

  1. There is wandering, getting lost
  2. Confused by surrounding
  3. Unable to recognize family and friends
  4. They are a fall risk
  5. Refusing to bathe, eat, dress or take medication
  6. Overt changes in mood or behaviors
  7. Cannot or should not be left alone
  8. Inability to communicate needs or thoughts

Dementia often comes with behaviors which are out of their control. It is important to remember that often the person with dementia is unaware of what is happening.

Try:

  1. Redirect them to another setting or subject
  2. Interact in a calm manner
  3. Do not take the outburst or words personally
  4. Walk away when appropriate to do so. Give them time to relax.
  5. Ask another person to intervene. Sometimes a different person can get a different response.
  6. Try to figure out what is causing the disturbance. Is there unidentified pain, hallucinations or infections?
