Memory Care

Individuals living with Alzheimer’s, or any other type of dementia, require more specialized care. At Villa Palazzo Memory Care, we embrace the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® program developed by Dr. Cameron Camp, the founder and director of research and development at the Center for Applied Research in Dementia. This program focuses on a holistic and personalized care approach with an emphasis on physical and cognitive abilities, which bring dignity and a sense of purpose to each resident.

Our Memory Care neighborhood is designed to foster a community-based experience for the residents, their families, and the staff caring for them. Group engagement programs help to establish social roles and create a sense of belonging, while singular care plans encourage personal choice and autonomy. This combination of programs ensures that each resident sustains a sense of purpose and engagement while emphasizing personal independence.

No matter what stage of dementia your loved one is experiencing, Villa Palazzo’s Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® program fosters independence, belonging and purpose, while providing the safety and security those suffering from dementia require.

The First Credentialed Community in Georgia

Villa Palazzo is one of a handful of Montessori Inspired Lifestyle®—credentialed communities across the country and the first one in Georgia. This means that Villa Palazzo has implemented a successful Montessori program and that our staff demonstrate a keen knowledge of its key principles. You can have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is receiving high-quality, evidence-based dementia care in a supportive environment.

A Unique Approach to Dementia Care

One Montessori practitioner called the program “a key to the lock,” opening the door to meaningful experiences for those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Watch the videos below to learn about the program’s beginnings and what it looks like in real-world senior living communities.
