Your Partners in Memory Care

Resident Care, The Kensington Way

Memory loss is life-changing for all involved –you, your family, as well as your loved one. Our team deeply understands Alzheimer’s and dementia, and we seek ways to capitalize on resident’s strengths, despite deterioration of recall. We help residents and families find ways to enjoy the beauty of special times, even if only moments. We honor the past, savor the present and look toward making the times that lie ahead manageable, comfortable and ultimately, peaceful.

We can accommodate all levels of memory loss, including seniors with severe end-stage dementia. This includes Frontotemporal Dementia (including Pick’s Disease), Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Alcohol Induced Dementia and more. These are seniors whose behaviors would not be acceptable in other senior living communities.

Experience The Kensington Sierra Madre difference.

We believe the degree of memory loss is an important consideration when planning care.

The goal at The Kensington Sierra Madre is to help each residence live independently as long as they are able. We assist in the process by providing care customized to your loved one’s level of memory loss. It’s care in which we offer assistance where needed, but step back to encourage his or her sense of independence.

In addition to round the clock loving care and support, we also provide relevant clinical services. You can have the peace of mind and confidence of knowing that your loved one is in capable, professional hands at all times.

Commonly Asked Memory Care Questions

We understand that the move to memory care raises many questions for your entire family. At The Kensington Sierra Madre, we’re here to help you navigate this new stage of life.

What is memory care?

Memory care is a specialized form of assisted living where residents live in an environment that is safe and structured, designed specifically to manage their symptoms, lower stress, and provide the compassion and care they need to live comfortably.

Memory care at The Kensington Sierra Madre provides residents with around-the-clock care from specially trained medical professionals and staff.

Our two memory care neighborhoods allow for tailored and individualized care: Connections and Haven.

  • Connections is for residents with early- to middle-stage dementia.
  • Haven is for residents with mid- to late-stage dementia, including those with behavioral challenges.

We also provide partnership programs and collaborations with specialized professionals who generate positive care outcomes based on current research findings.

To help residents thrive as much as possible physically, mentally, and spiritually, we provide customized small-group activities, special time with family and friends, and all-day dining as well.

How do I know if memory care is the right option?

The right time to transition a loved one to memory care is different for every family.

It may be prompted by a specific dementia diagnosis. Or you may consider changes in behavior or needs that may require more specialized care.

Is there a noticeable difference in cognitive function, behavioral changes, or diminishing physical health? Has physical safety become a concern? What would provide the best circumstances both for the person with dementia and their caregivers?

It’s also important to research and consider what care options are available and what you feel most comfortable with. Dementia can be challenging to navigate, so you want a care team that your family can trust so that you feel confident about your next steps.

We’re here to help if you would like to discuss your questions and options to know if  memory care is the right option for you.

What are Connections and Haven?

The Connections Neighborhood

Connections is designed for residents who are experiencing early-to-middle stages of Alzheimer’s and provides an intimate and comfortable environment. As such, the neighborhood cares for those who are showing increasing signs of memory loss.

In Connections, we strive to help residents to engage with interactions and socialization every day independently. Our daily programming guides them to find purpose and meaning every day. We stay attuned to our residents’ maximum cognitive abilities and recall to make the most of their strengths, supporting them and their families.

The Haven Neighborhood

Designed for those residents showing more advanced signs of memory loss, Haven provides peace and security for those with middle-to-late stages of Alzheimer’s.

Since these individuals require more assistance and a higher level of care, we strive to create a safe and soothing space with minimal agitation and an abundance of compassion.

What makes The Kensington Sierra Madre different?

At The Kensington Sierra Madre, we specialize in providing progressive memory care and enhanced assisted living services, offering the opportunity for true aging in place with a full spectrum of care.

We’re a community, putting family first and treating your loved one as if they were part of our own family. It’s helped us earn a reputation for ongoing staff loyalty as well.

We understand that managing dementia can be a difficult challenge. Our hope is that we can lift the burden of care management to provide a safe, enriching, and peaceful home for your loved one.

With our trusted care, you can focus on the many beautiful shared moments that are still ahead for you and your loved one.
