The Dolan Difference

Daily Life At Our Memory Care Homes

Dolan Memory Care Homes strives to engage your loved one in the highest quality of life by celebrating unique strengths through our true social model of care. Our beautiful homes are designed to support and involve our residents in their preferred daily activities. The environment we offer to your loved one is casual and comfortable. Residents and their families have access to a kitchen, dining room, family room and patio/outdoor areas. Research shows that living in a home setting increases socialization and improves behavior health outcomes for individuals with dementia.
