Life Enrichment Memory Care designed for quality of life.
The Life Enrichment Program at East Longmeadow Memory Care Assisted Living focuses on ability, with a simplified, encouraging environment, meaningful activities, and personal support to promote self-esteem, dignity and feelings of success. Our self-contained Life Enrichment community creates a calming, homelike environment with spacious common areas and dedicated services.
All-Inclusive Memory Care
East Longmeadow Memory Care Assisted Living provides a unique approach to supportive memory care living where residents receive as much personal assistance as they need for one monthly all-inclusive fee. Sometimes as we we age, Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) may become difficult for one to do without assistance. This may include things like dressing, bathing, medication reminders, or even walking and eating. We meet our residents where they are in their journey to ensure they thrive and continue to live a full and meaningful life without the worry of self care without support. The only additional costs are for cable and internet, guest meals and any specialty services.

Personalized Care and Attention
Residents living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias can discover new possibilities as a part of our Life Enrichment Memory Care community. Modeled after a typical home, our community has a spacious open floor plan for common areas, with private apartments. Our memory care program is limited to 20 apartments for personalized care and attention and they are are sized to help minimize confusion, each having its own bathroom, shower, and emergency alert system.
Resident Care Assistants meet residents within their reality, providing supportive assistance and a life of dignity and respect. Enhanced activities are available throughout the day and in the evening to meet personal habits and preferences.
When Memory Care Needs Progress
East Longmeadow’s Life Enrichment Memory Care Program is designed for those who would benefit from assisted living. When care needs progress beyond what can be provided in a traditional assisted living setting, East Longmeadow Skilled Nursing Center on our shared campus offers a higher level of certified memory care, and our residents receive priority access, subject to availability.
Embracing Their Reality
Built around the philosophy of habilitation, our program meets residents in their own world. The habilitation model provides a framework for understanding, communicating, and interacting with people who have dementia, and was developed jointly by Dr. Paul Raia of the Alzheimer’s Association and Joanne Koenig Coste, Alzheimer’s advocate and author.
Programming focuses on the skills and abilities that remain for a failure-free environment where residents can succeed and feel good about themselves. By joining the resident within their reality, caregivers create an environment where residents can succeed and feel good about themselves.
