Memory Support

Vi at Lakeside Village offers a comfortable, structured memory support environment designed to enhance the well-being of residents with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s and related cognitive conditions.

Canvas by Vi, our hallmark memory support program, provides care that treats every resident not just as a patient, but as a whole person. Our compassionate approach helps each resident live their most remarkable retirement in a way that meets their personal and independent needs.

Personalized care

We get to know every resident as a person—their interests, hobbies, preferences, history and day-to-day life—to provide care and support that’s anything but cookie-cutter.

A progressive approach

Whole-person wellness

What to expect with memory support

Our memory support staff meets with family members and creates a customized care plan with specialized programs and services designed to meet each resident’s unique needs.

In addition to this person-centered care approach, we offer a range of services and amenities, including daily housekeeping service and laundering of bed and bath linens.

Even meal time is designed to be easier for memory support residents, with carefully selected, easy-to-handle menu items and tablecloths, napkins and tableware in contrasting colors to decrease confusion. Plus, all meals are prepared with care under the supervision of our executive chef.

In addition to caring for our full-time residents, we also offer short-term relief for primary caregivers through respite care services as occupancy and admission criteria allow. 

Activities in memory support

We offer a variety of activities designed to engage memory support residents:

  • Walking, dancing and structured exercises to maintain muscle strength and flexibility
  • Montessori Method–based activities to support motor skills and concentration, as well as build self-esteem
  • Social hours for residents to share memories, tell stories and reminisce
  • Scheduled outings and activities
Support for families

Vi at Lakeside Village helps families with educational resources, including guest speakers, to help them learn about dementia and how it will affect their loved ones. Our care center can also refer families to area support groups.

Memory support fees
Fees for Type A/Inclusive care residents

Residents who are contracted with Vi for Inclusive Care will continue to pay their independent living monthly fee after moving to our care center. Monthly fees do not change when residents move to a higher level of care, but ongoing, community-wide fee increases will continue to apply. There are charges for ancillary items and additional meals received while in our care center.

If a resident and their spouse are both contracted for continuing care and only one requires a higher level of care, one spouse will remain in independent living while the other moves to our care center. Both residents will continue to pay the monthly fee paid while residing in independent living. Their monthly fees will not change because of a move to a higher level of care, but ongoing, community-wide monthly fee increases will continue to apply. In addition, there are charges for ancillary items and additional meals received while in our care center.

Fees for Type C/Fee-for-Service care residents

Residents who are contracted for Fee-for-Service Care have access to our care center for assisted living, memory support or skilled nursing, but the monthly fee will increase to reflect standard market rates for the applicable care venue.

Fees for direct admission

Costs for direct entry to our care center are charged at standard market rates. We accept Traditional Medicare (Parts A & B) and Private Pay, and where the circumstances allow, we can process payment from other participating third-party or private insurance coverages.
