Heartfelt Connections: A Memory Care Program


Each member of our memory care team at Laurel Circle is trained in the innovative and proven Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program®, a comprehensive program based on the latest in dementia care research and best practices.

Heartfelt Connections is an individualized program that starts with getting to know each resident’s life story, focusing on each resident’s capabilities. Then we develop a personalized plan that concentrates on each resident’s unique abilities and celebrates each small success.
