Memory Care Units

Care Initiatives offers five specially equipped locations for elderly Iowans suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other related memory impairment disorders. While receiving compassionate care from our dedicated nurses and staff, the residents in our memory units also have added security and enhanced cognitive and psycho-social programming customized to accommodate the individual’s capabilities and attention span. The units are a very structured format designed to reduce agitation and encourage social interaction.  Although all of our locations provide some level of memory care, Care Initiatives facilities with specialized memory care units include Heritage (Cedar Rapids), Corydon, Eldora, Manly, and Southern Hills (Osceola).
