A Better Place for Mom

            What is the best way to find senior assisted living?  There are many different avenues from a direct referral like your neighbor, a discharge planner, placement agency, health care providers, and the internet.  While the elder care industry is maturing, there are still very few trusted brands or businesses.  With Memento Care Homes, you can have confidence that each care home has been carefully selected and continues to meet our exacting standards. We are pioneers in setting and achieving consistent and superior standards in senior assisted living.

            Most of us are not comfortable staying at an unknown hotel out of town.  We would be more comfortable at a trusted brand, such as Marriott, Best Western, Hilton, etc.  We know that the accommodations will be of a certain standard and the staff will treat us as expected or better. 

            Imagine those same concerns of an unfamiliar place, but now you are going to be placing your loved one there for assisted living.  Your mother, father, or spouse will be living there, eating there, and will be relying on trained staff to oversee medications.  The staff will also be responsible for personal care such as helping with bathing and toileting.  You will need to have complete confidence in the facility and staff.

            There are internet websites that list assisted living facilities.  These websites do not do anything to evaluate their listed facilities.  They do not make sure that they are clean, well run, have adequately trained staff, or even are in compliance with federal and state requirements.  Their highest priority is to be paid by these facilities for having listed them on their website.

            Memento Care Homes allow you directly find a board and care home for your loved one.  Memento does not just list homes on our website.  We remain involved in the day to day operations, from the menus to staff training, to ensure compliance with our exacting standards.  Memento Care is brand that you can trust.
