The Lourdes Center for Memory Care

At St. Patrick’s Manor, the “difference is love” and our compassion and respect for each individual reflects the commitment of the mission of the Carmelite Sisters. The Lourdes Center for Memory Care reflects our many years of experience caring for individuals with memory impairment. Our state-of-the-art center offers your loved ones individualized therapeutic programs, meaningful activities and the loving environment and hospitality at the heart of our mission.

We have designed every aspect of The Lourdes Center to enhance residents’ strengths and to maximize functioning. Here, our guiding principle is “resident-centered” care that fosters a home-like environment, and brings joy, and purpose to each day. Our Interdisciplinary Team works with each resident's family to develop an individualized plan for their loved one. All members of our team receive specialized training in working with individuals with memory loss, so they can be creative and adapt their services to a resident's life history, abilities and needs.

The facility itself is resident-centered, allowing for optimal freedom of movement and functioning. Each private room and bath has distinct color contrasts to aid in differentiating objects. The corridors have varied color schemes to designate different “neighborhood” areas as well. The enclosed courtyard is specially designed to appeal to each of the senses. This secured space features a fountain, edible flowers and plants, a walking path for greater mobility, and seating for residents and their families.

At the Lourdes Center we encourage family to decorate the resident’s room with personal and treasured items. We welcome family participation and the sharing of significant events in the resident’s history. The team is always available to provide ongoing family education and support. We encourage family members to contact us for more information or schedule a personal visit.
