Memory Care at Aster Gardens

Memory care is a form of specialized care that caters to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, other related dementias, and other memory concerns. 

At Aster Gardens, you will experience the Optima Living Memory Care Program, a program rooted in person-centred care which draws on our own experience, clinical best practice, and evidence-informed research. This program inspired the development of our Memory Care Neighbourhoods which provide 24-hour supervised attention, care and support in an intentionally designed, home-style space.

Person-Centred Care

Person-centred care is more than just words – it is a lived experience. It is based on values, compassion, empathy, respect, love, and dignity and its essence is woven into each of the four pillars of the Optima Living Memory Care Program. Person-centred care has driven the development of this program from the physical design of our space to our care partner training and the various offerings we provide to residents at Aster Gardens. We will support you through an individualized approach in which you will have a say in each decision made regarding your care. We want to know your story, who you are, what you like, what you hope for, and how you want to live.
