Every day is filled with meaningful moments.
Our secure Life Enrichment Memory Care community is designed specifically for those living with Alzheimer’s or other dementia, providing a spacious, comfortable setting for worry-free days.
Every detail, from décor to physical layout, is designed for the specialized needs of those living with dementia. Our Life Enrichment Memory Care at East Longmeadow Memory Care Assisted Living is a secure, self-contained community where residents with Alzheimer’s or other dementias feel safe and secure in a comfortable, homelike environment.
Our goal is to create safe, enjoyable opportunities for each resident to experience, providing continued joy and fulfillment in their lives in a welcoming home-like setting. We offer 20 private apartments for personalized care in a low-stress environment that builds familiarity. Whether it’s planting flowers in the courtyard, reminiscing with friends, dancing and swaying to musical favorites, or visiting with family in their own beautiful apartment, your loved one will have everything they need to be comfortable and happy.
Compassionate Care Team
Our staffing ratio is based on the Alzheimer’s Association recommendations for a special care residence, and our entire staff is trained in the habilitation approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care, joining residents within their reality for more successful interactions. Compassionate personal care assistance promotes quality of life with dignity and respect.
Life Enrichment Memory Care Activities
The key to life enrichment is offering the best in every day. Meaningful memory care activities help residents make connections with the world around them and maintain the abilities they still have. We find that familiar, everyday activities make a great foundation, so we focus on what our residents enjoy doing and what used to be part of their regular routine—whether it’s making meatballs, playing checkers, or listening to music. We also encourage pet therapy and intergenerational activities.
We carry that same level of flexibility into our program scheduling, with activities available day or night to accommodate residents’ needs. Our Certified Activities Director oversees our activities programming with modifications for ability, interest, and involvement.
Our spacious Life Enrichment Memory Care community offers residents many options for engaging in activities or finding a quiet space. Our grounds feature a serene central courtyard as well as a gazebo for residents to enjoy the outdoors at their leisure.

Life Enrichment Memory Care Dining
We see mealtime as much more than a time to refuel—it’s an opportunity to bolster self-esteem and provide nutrition, enjoyment, and success. For those with Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss and dementia, dining poses multiple challenges—from confusion to disinterest to difficulty with functional ability.
We keep things simple to encourage success. Meals are served family-style, with our care team facilitating mealtime socialization and modeling appropriate behavior. Finger foods are options for those no longer able to use utensils, and food and beverages are available on a flexible schedule throughout the day when formal mealtimes are not realistic.
Above all, as with all aspects of our Life Enrichment Memory Care program, we assist residents within their current capabilities, showing them the utmost dignity and respect.
