Many seniors who are ready to make the move to a senior living community benefit from memory care programs. These specialized programs include medical care, engaging activities, and a range of resort-style amenities to help every resident feel at home.

What Is SHINE® Memory Care?

SHINE® Memory Care is exclusively available in 36 Discovery Senior Living communities nationwide. This program involves a deeply personalized approach to memory care. Our team members use scientific principles to promote engagement, comprehension, and lifestyle quality for seniors living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory-related conditions.

We incorporate six individual points of focus to create a holistic plan that ensures each resident’s care program is tailored to their needs and abilities. The goal of these care programs is to have the most impact in supporting and enriching their health by providing the opportunity to live their best life, every day.

What are the six points of focus? They include the following:

  • Communication – A superior communication protocol closely links care providers, residents, and families
  • Team member training – Every one of the SHINE® team members receives extensive, specialized training and certification, making them uniquely qualified to administer exceptional care
  • My Story – We make each resident a handcrafted My Story book, which we use every day as a component of the care plan, helping engage residents by celebrating their life and individuality
  • Dining – Our dining experience uses subtle sciences to stimulate appetite, interaction, awareness, and participation
  • Life enhancement – Purpose-driven enrichment through group and one-on-one activities, sensory experiences, and quiet and relaxed moments
  • Neighborhood design – Our senior living community was designed with safety and security, convenience and health and happiness in mind
