MEMORY CARE

Passionate Care, Personalized -
Welcome to Memory Care in The Cottage at Legacy Oaks of Midlothian

At Legacy Oaks of Midlothian, we believe that the good life for our Alzheimer’s and dementia care residents is found in moments. Moments filled with happiness, kindness, purposefulness, and laughter. The kind of small, pleasurable moments that make life worth living. The ones that are best enjoyed in the present. That’s why we offer a comprehensive, loving, evidence-based approach to memory care in The Cottage - because every moment makes a difference in the quality of life for our residents.

We intentionally keep the number of available rooms in The Cottage low and our staff per resident ratios high so that all of our residents can enjoy warm, attentive, compassionate care in a small, home-like environment. We want our memory care residents to feel like they’re part of a caring, close-knit community. We want them to be reminded every day of two things we feel strongly about: that they’re important and that they matter.

At Legacy Oaks of Midlothian, we support this passion with required certifications and the best of ongoing training in positive, person-centered dementia care. Also, we maintain higher staff-per-resident ratios to ensure every staff member can truly get to know each resident and the kind of personalized assistance they need.

We love when our staff and residents bond, so we actively encourage meaningful relationships between them. These relationships benefit the resident by allowing their caregivers to be more intuitive and flexible in their care, as well as their loved ones by providing access to detailed information from the caregivers themselves.
