Memory Support

The Whittier Memory Support Area is designed and is specifically oriented to serve Kendal residents who have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. The experienced, compassionate staff ensures safe, secure memory care for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Because many individuals with Alzheimer’s disease suffer a loss of depth perception, Kendal is particularly attentive to the use of color and contrast, to distinguish walls from furniture, for example. Whittier includes an indoor-outdoor walking garden, as an alternative to Kendal’s existing outdoor circular walking garden. The large common area, includes space for the residents to participate in the therapeutic milieu. Residents enjoy socializing, music, games, and other activities. Individual choice is always respected and the daily life of residents is based on their past and current interests. It is the goal of the program is to maintain residents’ independence, offer them the support that is needed with their disease diagnosis, and maintain their connection to the Kendal at Hanover community.
