MEMORY CARE

Welcome to The Cottage, Our Memory Care Neighborhood

At The Ridglea, 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, and loving approach to memory care in The Cottage - because every moment makes a difference in the quality of life for our residents.
