Memory Care

"True North" ~ the internal compass that guides us through life.  

True North is an 11-person house devoted to help families find direction for their loves one with Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia.  True North was designed with soothing decor and private suites, providing privacy for the resident and their family. 

At True North, we are committed to tailoring our care to each unique resident.  Our goal is to help each family find direction, meaning and joy along the often confusing path of dementia.

Veteran's Benefits & Programs

Aid and Attendance exists for veterans and their surviving spouses who served during wartime.  They are an excellent source of funds for long-term care at an assisted living facility.  Any veteran who has served at least 90 days, with one day during a period of war, and has health needs that require some level of assistance may qualify for the pension.  The surviving spouse of a veteran who meets the service requirements may also qualify.
