Grace Manor at Lake Morton is a community that meets the unique needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory disorders. By creating a simpler world that moves at a slower, more structured pace, we minimize confusion and anxiety. Grace Manor is designed to enhance residents’ social, cognitive, physical and emotional abilities through innovative therapy, social interaction with others at the same stage of progression and appropriate environmental features. We provide care through all stages of memory disorders, including hospice care.
Custom Programs to Fit Individuals’ Needs
Grace Manor at Lake Morton designs custom programs with the needs of each individual resident in mind. For those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia, the program coordinator may conduct outings, exercise therapy, cognitive and memory games. These and similar activities help residents maintain interaction with their community, enhance their memory skills and increase their physical abilities. Individuals in later stages of memory disorders may participate in touch therapy and aromatherapy to increase their sensory abilities and help them recall special memories.
Grace Manor at Lake Morton is the only assisted living facility in Polk County to have a multisensory room especially for memory care patients. The room promotes relaxation and stimulates the senses in a soothing and dynamic way.
