EDEN FULL-LIFE ACTIVITIES

Our residents deserve activities that provide a higher standard of living. Too often the elderly become marginalized and when they are experiencing cognitive memory impairment, it often becomes worse. You want your loved one in an environment that not only helps them maintain the best of who they are for as long as possible, but you also want a place where he or she can thrive with excellent care, new experiences and meaningful relationships. That is what we offer at Eden Memory Care.

We’ve created a sense of family here and our residents enjoy doing the things that families do together. Our full-life activities, like everything else here, are based on research. These activities have been shown to have positive effects on individuals with cognitive memory impairment.
