Memory Care Apartment Features

The Birches’ Encore neighborhood is located a level down from our main lobby and opens into a fenced garden overlooking our pond.

Our private Encore studio apartments have been carefully designed to be comfortable, secure, and safe. There's plenty of space to personalize your apartment with all the special furnishings and keepsakes that are meaningful to you. If you prefer a completely furnished apartment, those are available too. We encourage you to bring your pets because we understand the important role these “special friends” play in your life and therapeutic benefit of pets within memory care.

All Encore apartments include a modified kitchenette, private bathroom, walk-in shower, carpeted living space, local and long distance telephone service, utilities, satellite television, Wi-Fi access, and weekly housekeeping, and we’ll take your subscription newspaper to your door each morning. We’ve many incorporated many features into our community that offer benefits to people with limitations in movement, flexibility, cognition, and strength.

Encore apartments also are equipped with the Vigil Dementia System, an innovative technology that allows Encore residents to maintain dignity and independence without sacrificing safety. The Vigil System utilizes sensors to silently alert our associates when a resident requires attention. These sensors can detect when residents leave their bed or when they are wandering. Through Vigil, The Birches can provide Encore residents with the highest quality care while allowing them to maintain as much privacy as possible.

Features, listed in bullets under the assisted living section above, are also included in each apartment in our memory care neighborhood too!
