Memory Care In Bloomington, MN

Embracing Moments, Preserving Connections

All of us should feel empowered to live a life of dignity, purpose, and connection. Memory care provides those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia the place and space to continue living a meaningful life.

Alzheimer’s is not about the past—the successes, the accolades, the accomplishments… Alzheimer’s is about the present and the struggle, the scrappy brawl, the fight to live with a disease. It’s being in the present, the relationships, the experiences, which is the core of life, the courage to live in the soul.

Common Questions About Memory Care

People who are cognitively challenged, whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, require additional levels of care and security than those who simply need help with activities of daily living. Memory care residences at Friendship Village of Bloomington are designed to ensure residents feel safe and secure. Our program is structured to build confidence in an environment that promotes choice and celebrates accomplishments.

Our fully trained team members get to know your loved one — their history, their likes and dislikes, and preferred schedule. This nurturing relationship often improves interactions, helps reduce behavior problems, and may result in a reduction in medication needs.

Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that is severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. This group of symptoms may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form (and cause) of dementia. It is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas. This leads to loss of recent memories and new learning first, and eventually old memories, too.

At Friendship Village of Bloomington, we provide a full continuum of care options for every senior's needs, including skilled nursing care for those who need 24/7 medical assistance and monitoring, as well as assisted living for those who need a helping hand. If one were to experience an injury or illness requiring rehabilitative support, those services are also available.
