Check out the NorthStar Memory Care Program, which includes life enrichment activities, features to help residents more easily find their own way, and added features like secured entrances.

For instance, outdoor courtyards protect residents who may display exit-seeking behavior.  Moreover, red tableware has been shown to increase food intake by up to 24% and liquid intake by up to 84%.  Amazing!

But mostly, it’s the constant activities that go on—wellness events, social gatherings, outings, lounges, library, games, medication management, personal care, special dietary needs, outdoor seating, and many organized activities to keep one alert and included.

Our ability to live longer, healthier, more productive lives is one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments!
