Home Sweet Home

            There are many options for senior assisted living.  Most families searching for a place for their loved ones mistakenly believe there are two options; live at home or live in a skilled nursing facility.  Fortunately, the elder care industry has matured and evolved into a spectrum of options.  Memento Care Homes fill the daily needs of your elderly parents in the kind of environment they are most familiar with; being in a residential house.  We feel that living in a house, rather than a large assisted living facility, provides more comprehensive care for your mother, father, or spouse. 

            Most of us grew up in a house.  This was a regular house with a bedroom, family room, kitchen, and a dining room where we would meet for dinner every night.  Even if you grew up in an apartment, these familiar areas still existed.  It is comforting to every one of us. 

            Most large assisted living facilities have studio or one bedroom apartments.  These are not shared, so unless the resident has a spouse, your time is spent by yourself.  Sure there are clubs and activities, but it reminds me of my college dorm room.  I don’t know very many people that preferred living in a dorm.  I remember being very pleased when I was able to share a four bedroom apartment with my friends.  There was constant social engagement, even if that did mean that my roommate never would take out the trash. 

Memento Care Homes provide the essential daily needs of your loved ones in the environment that they feel most comfortable.  Let us help you find a Home Sweet Home.
