Our Approach to Memory Care 

Our memory care community in Tacoma takes a unique approach and features a small group of residents who live together in a home-like setting with secured outside courtyards and many gathering spaces. Our goals for each resident are: 1) to provide a sense of security and belonging through reassuring staff and caring services in a place that feels like home, and 2) to add quality of life through a daily routine building conversation, social interaction, bonding and a sense of belonging.

New Montessori-Inspired Memory Care Programming

Starting in late 2022, Franke Tobey Jones embarked on a brand new way of engaging with residents in our Memory Care. While Montessori is most often connected to learning for children, Montessori for dementia has been shown to be extremely effective in allowing the person with dementia to reconnect to a world they are losing access to. Through sensory experiences and hands-on programing, those who have dementia are better able to reconnect with pleasant events and memories of the past and experience the positive emotions of remembered events.
