Understanding Memory Care
If your loved one is experiencing memory impairments, they can live with dignity at Westwood Inn.
At Westwood Inn, we aim to create an environment for every resident to enjoy an enriched life full of possibilities, not limitations. Unfortunately, it’s common for seniors to experience memory loss as they age. This loss of memory can make it difficult or dangerous for seniors to live alone. For many families and caregivers, dealing with memory care can be overwhelming and disheartening. At Westwood Inn, we provide our memory care residents an\ fulfilling environment, with spacious apartments, comprehensive health and safety precautions, and daily activities. With our compassionate staff taking care of the physical and emotional needs of our residents, families and caregivers have the ability to spend more quality time with their loved ones.
Memory Care with the Montessori Method
Memory care can be an extremely sensitive topic, and our team at Westwood Inn is experienced in directing care for residents experiencing memory loss.
Unlike other memory care communities, each member of the Westwood Inn memory care staff in Macomb, MI, is trained under the Montessori philosophy. The Montessori method offers a kinder and more beneficial way to care for dementia residents. This method centers on communicating and interacting with memory care residents in their own world by reaching the person who still exists. We want each resident to feel safe, comfortable, and content. Our team develops the Montessori philosophy, roles, routines, and activities for each individual resident. We meet with the family, talk with the resident, and create a plan based on what’s meaningful to that individual. Our goal at Westwood Inn is to engage the senses in order to help Alzheimer’s and dementia residents rediscover the world around them.

Memory Care: Keeping Your Loved Ones Connected
We provide the most effective memory care by maximizing the opportunities our residents have to reconnect with the world around them.
Memory care takes extensive knowledge and patience, as individuals can experience heightened emotional responses to their loved one’s inability to remember critical pieces of information. While more recent memories are often destroyed by dementia, many individuals retain their long-term memory. Using the Montessori Method, we create opportunities for individuals with dementia to reconnect with their positive long-term memories. Our goal is to provide personalized memory care for our residents while building relationships with their caregivers and loved ones. We want to alleviate any worry, stress, or anxiety that can consume both our residents and their caregivers, families, and friends. Our team at Westwood Inn is well-trained, compassionate, and kindhearted. Each member of our team in Macomb, MI, is here to help our residents and their loved ones feel comfortable, safe, and confident.
