25 Years Experience

Dolan Memory Care Homes has over 25 years of caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Tim Dolan saw a challenge over 25 years ago that needed to be addressed: caring for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias with dignity and respect. When Tim built his first home in 1994 for individuals with a memory impairment, few placement options were available for families. Dolan Memory Care Homes is locally owned and operated.

Dolan Memory Care Homes is pleased to announce that members of our Team have been recognized for dedication to their profession. We strive to create the highest quality team for care of our Residents.
