What is “Memory Care”?

“Memory Care” is a specialized form of long-term skilled nursing that specifically caters to the unique needs of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other types of memory problems. Memory care units usually provide 24-hour supervised care within a separate wing or floor of a residential facility.

Sunshine does offer a Memory Care program at one of our locations — The Terrace at The Gardens at Brook Ridge, located in Pharr, TX. While some loved ones with memory loss may need the intensive, complex medical care of a traditional skilled nursing facility, we provide 24-hour assisted and health-related services in a safe, secure, relaxed environment. Our program harnesses the power of music as well as unique activities and techniques to create an environment of trust.
