At TerraBella Senior Living, we understand that memory loss can be a difficult journey, both for those experiencing it and their loved ones.

Our specialized memory care in Raleigh and assisted living program is designed to provide a safe, supportive environment where residents can live with dignity while maintaining as much independence as possible.


Our Memory Care Services

We have a separate, secure neighborhood specially designed for our memory care residents. This allows us to provide dedicated memory care staffing and personalized activities tailored to each resident’s abilities and interests.

Our memory care team completes special dementia care training to understand how certain conditions may impact communication, behavior, and daily functions. This ensures they can meet residents’ changing needs through each stage of the disease.


Our Programming and Daily Life

Research shows daily mental and physical stimulation is essential for cognitive function in those with memory loss diseases. Our activities team develops personalized activity plans for each resident based on their interests and abilities.

We also focus on life skills like preparing simple meals together, setting a table, or watering plants. This maintains connections to familiar daily routines and roles. Families are welcome to join in activities, too.

Our goal is for each day to have a purpose and be engaging.


Person-Centered Care Approach

We embrace a person-centered philosophy where each resident’s unique history, preferences, routines, and abilities guide their individualized care plan.

Our staff learns important details about residents’ lives and maintains an ongoing dialogue with families to learn about their likes, interests, and what makes their loved ones tick.

This will help us address both medical and psychosocial needs. For example, if a resident enjoys gardening, we may use visual prompts and cues to help with tasks in our courtyard. Activities are selected not only based on cognitive abilities but also on what people find meaningful.

We also encourage independence for as long as safely possible. Some residents may help fold laundry or peel vegetables under supervision, while others participate by providing conversation or company. This promotes feelings of usefulness and fulfillment versus loss of abilities.


Specialized Medical Support

Our nursing staff are specially trained in dementia care, fall prevention, behavior management, communication techniques, and non-pharmacological interventions.

We also partner with local medical and senior care specialists in Raleigh and the surrounding areas. On-call physicians regularly visit for comprehensive exams, medication reviews, and care conferences with families. Our exceptional assisted living memory care program provides optimal medical management while avoiding over-medication.

Family Support and Engagement

We understand this journey can be difficult for families, and we aim to be a consistent source of education, guidance, and reassurance. Loved ones play a crucial role in a resident’s quality of life, and we strive to maintain these connections.
