Creating an environment in which each person can function at his or her best is the core of our resident-centered philosophy at Friendship Village. That philosophy extends to our residents diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and other forms of memory loss.
Friendship Village is one of the few senior living communities offering two levels of memory support based on the extent of care needed — Reflections Memory Support at Willows Assisted Living and Reflections Memory Support at Briarwood Healthcare Center.
Our life-affirming approach to caregiving for residents diagnosed with dementia focuses on the integrity, dignity and best abilities of each individual. Our entire memory support staff are certified as Dementia Care Specialists (DCS), a certification from the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) representing academic excellence and practical application. Staff are also provided with ongoing continuing education and training in dementia patient care -- which Friendship Village also makes available to residents' families.
Reflections at Willows is a beautifully remodeled neighborhood at Friendship Village where residents live in their own secure, private apartment homes and enjoy all the attention and support of the caring Reflections associates. We deliver individualized care based on the level of need for each resident.
Reflections at Willows services and amenities include:
