At Bonaventure of Vancouver, each of our memory care residents is unique—and so is our approach to making sure all their needs are met. By connecting with family members, our goal is to understand your loved one’s personal needs and preferences, including all aspects of their physical, mental, and emotional health. Together, we create a professional and honorable memory care plan to ensure your loved one experiences life to the fullest while at Bonaventure.

Memory Care at Bonaventure

After learning about our residents’ histories and becoming familiar with what’s truly important to them, our staff’s mission is to incorporate cherished memories and valued tokens into their daily life. We celebrate the past to create a vibrant present—a present that’s surrounded by a dignified environment that honors your loved one’s individuality and accomplishments.

To better support those who suffer from memory loss and their loved ones, our staff receives ongoing education and training. With low staff-to-resident ratios and small group sizes, we strive to create a lasting bond with all of our memory care patients, as it’s our goal to prove that life-affirming experiences can still be pursued in the comfort of a Bonaventure memory care facility.

Assistance Tailored to Your Needs: Memory Care vs. Assisted Living

Our assisted living facility provides seniors with all the exceptional benefits of the retirement community lifestyle, plus additional assistance when needed from compassionate staff. Our assisted living community offers three delicious restaurant-style meals a day, an abundance of amenities and daily activities to enjoy, personal care support, and medication management. However, those with memory loss, especially in advanced stages, may find they require more support than an assisted living facility can provide. At Bonaventure, our memory care program goes above and beyond to effectively provide care for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In addition to the services and amenities provided by our assisted living program, our memory care residents also receive 24-hour supervised care, private suites uniquely designed to accommodate those living with memory loss, and special memory care activities.

Our Special Memory Care Services

As a part of our goal to nourish the minds and bodies of every guest in our memory care facility, Bonaventure of Vancouver has structured a variety of activities and services to promote both health and engagement. From clinical exercises with cognitive and physical activities to reminiscing therapy and aromatherapy, there’s always a way to take health-improving steps regardless of physical ability.

Here are a few of the special memory care activities that we provide:

  • Reminiscing therapy
  • Aromatherapy

Supporting Families with Loved Ones in Memory Care
