Our SHINE® Memory Care program curriculum has earned a National Certificate of Recognition from the Alzheimer’s Association®, the country’s leading, voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care and research. The distinction is one that we share with a small and elite group of U.S. memory care providers.
SHINE® utilizes a personalized approach to our dementia loved ones. We make use of scientific principles that can promote comprehension and engagement in our loved ones who are living with dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, or any other memory-related conditions.

To provide quality care, we only engage nurses and certified nurse assistants. They undergo regular training and education, especially in terms of memory care diseases to make sure that they are kept up to date with the latest medical care.
