Heartfelt Connections-A Memory Care Program
Woodside at Friendship Village features the renowned Heartfelt Connections—A Memory Care Program™, a person-centered approach grounded in the belief that the abilities that remain are far more important than those that are lost.
Our team employs reminiscence tools to help residents’ family members and loved ones capture the details of residents’ lives—their careers, hobbies, likes and dislikes. We then apply the insights gained from each life story to create an individualized care plan that promotes physical and emotional well-being, prolongs daily functioning, and helps maintain a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions
While both assisted living and memory care provide assistance with the activities of daily living—such as help with bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication management—memory care at Woodside at Friendship Village offers a specific type of compassionate Alzheimer’s care and dementia care that is specially designed for those with memory impairment. In addition, memory care residents live in a specifically designated “neighborhood” designed for safety, security, and socialization.
Memory care at Friendship Village provides a specially designed, whole-person approach to Alzheimer’s care and dementia care. Residents live in a warm and friendly, family-like neighborhood with the safety of 24-hour onsite staffing and the loving care of highly trained personnel who implement proven memory care programs that encourage and celebrate remaining abilities. It would be virtually impossible to duplicate this level of round-the-clock safety, sense of community and socialization, and specific expertise in Alzheimer’s care by using an in-home care service.
The best senior living value combines a package of services and amenities with access to health care, assisted living, and memory care. At a LifeCare® community such as Friendship Village, residents pay for services and health care in an affordable monthly fee rather than on a more expensive a-la-carte basis.
Many communities, like Friendship Village, also offer a choice of financial plans that refund a percentage of the entrance payment to you or your estate, depending on your preference. Simply put, this type of community gives you more value for your dollar without sacrificing peace of mind.
