Peace of mind when you need it most.
Supporting a family member with advancing dementia is extremely challenging – and so is searching for the right memory care community when the time comes to consider outside help. At The Fremont, our staff trains with top dementia educators to provide the highest quality personalized care so you can step back from being the caregiver and start to be a daughter or son again.
The cottage is structured to offer an engaging and supportive environment with comfort and ease of navigation in mind. By focusing on dignity, quality of life, and independence, we strive to ensure all of our residents feel respected and cared for as they age, regardless of what they remember today or tomorrow.

Memory Care Apartments
Memory care at The Fremont is all about the balance between residents having a private space to call their own while also being a part of the daily activity throughout the community. Our apartments were designed with seniors in mind, ensuring simple and immediate access to all the necessities of life.
Assigned Life Enrichment Coordinators
We believe that quality care begins with strong relationships. That’s why we pair life enrichment coordinators and residents as a team – so personalized bonds of trust and friendship can be developed over time. By interacting with the same set of residents consistently, we are able to focus on developing communication skills unique to each resident and strive to identify small changes in health and wellness.
We understand that one top-of-the-mind concern for most families is finding a secure but welcoming environment. The design of the memory care cottage focuses not just on comfort and ease of navigation, but on security. However, we never want residents to feel monitored, so we make every effort to integrate resident safety systems in discreet ways.
Specialized activity stations, called Life Stations™, are dotted strategically throughout our memory care cottage to promote engagement opportunities for residents. Designed to resemble important aspects of life, each station is intended to capture residents’ attention and promote a sense of purpose. Our Life Enrichment Coordinators also create life boxes that are specific to memory care residents!
Because of the unique symptoms and behaviors caused by memory loss, it can seem like the only solution is to limit and restrict the senior’s activity. But at The Fremont we have the means to do the difficult tasks to get residents re-engaged with life.
One undeniably difficult symptom of memory loss is the toll it takes on diet. From changing tastes to loss of appetite and even medication interactions, ensuring a quality diet is a nearly impossible task. That’s why a robust dining strategy is one of the core features of our memory care cottage.
Alzheimer’s and other dementias can make once automatic grooming habits seem impossible. At The Fremont, we believe that residents should have the dignity we all take for granted – looking and feeling presentable. In addition to assuring that every resident enjoys the daily care of combing, brushing, and makeup, we include a weekly visit to our salon at no additional cost.
It is vitally important when providing care for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia to be equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge and proven effective techniques, not to mention a drive to care for those in need. Our Memory Care Leadership has the prerequisite tools, expertise, and heart to give attention that is second to none.
