Memory Support

The special needs of residents affected by dementia, including Alzheimer’s, can be addressed in the Memory Support residences located in skilled nursing care. The Knolls recognizes that memory loss affects people differently and progresses at varying degrees. The individual’s need for monitoring and support determines which location will best meet his or her specific needs.
