Making a Difference with Specialized Memory Care
Every resident is an individual and can expect specialized care in a pleasing, stimulating environment. With safety features in place for residents’ protection, every Betty’s Garden features an open floor plan designed to encourage interaction and independence. This affords residents the freedom to move around, interact and enjoy each day, all under the supervision of a trained coordinator.
We limit the occupancy of our intimate home setting so that our specialized experts in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care can completely focus on the individual’s total care. Our caregivers are finely tuned to each resident’s preferences and personality to notice nuances in behavior changes and to anticipate needs. Medications are accurately managed to ensure proper and timely dosage.
Betty’s Garden was established in the memory of one of our special tenants who suffered from Alzheimer’s for over 7 years. At that time, there were no area specialized care units for her and she ultimately had to be admitted to a skilled nursing facility for her care. As with many who suffer from dementia and not in the proper setting and programming, her Alzheimer’s lead to other care concerns. Betty’s Garden provides a safe and secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

When our family realized our mom was in need of a different living environment, we found Betty’s Garden Memory Care. Betty’s Garden Memory Care is a small home-like setting; it is a wonderful environment for your loved one to thrive in.
The Nurses, CNAs, RAs, & staff truly do love your loved one, as though they were their own family member. All staff is involved in ongoing education & it’s remarkable to see! The staff knows how to create those moments of joy with your loved one.
Our family would highly recommend the facility for your loved ones. The facility is beautiful & well maintained. The tenants are safe & cared for in a unique environment for Alzheimer’s & Dementia. When visiting Mom, we leave with a comfortable feeling that she is happy & well cared for.
My father’s move to Courtyard Estates this last October has allowed him and our family to enjoy a new peace of mind. First impressions of the facility and staff were that of an emotional uplifting. The staff is composed of friendly professionals with the sincere objectives of giving outstanding care and of providing for the well being of the residents rather than making a profit.
After three carefree months of his residency at Courtyard Estates dad is very comfortable and happy in his new home. I feel this is primarily due to the warm and contagious attitude of the nursing staff and administrative personnel.
The free medical transportation with a lift assisted van is a service that is provided, not just promised.Food quality is just that; quality. I have had several meals there and twice I have gone to the kitchen afterwards to ask Chef Tim how he had prepared the entrée. It is, really that good.Bottom line is just that, the value. Compare Courtyard Estates to other facilities in the area. You will pleasantly discover what we did. They offer a much higher level of service, superior care and attention.
Plus, unmatched food quality and all of this at a very surprisingly low, affordable rate. Most of all is the peace of mind for the family that there is an experienced caring professional helping you twenty-four hours a day.
My doctor called me and told me that my lab results showed I was able to stop one of my medications I take for my diabetes. He told me that Courtyard Estates of Peoria was sure doing something right with my diet! I eat the foods I enjoy and my health is improving” – Martha Anderson
Courtyard Estates staff were attentive, patient, caring and helpful to us at all times during our loved ones stay. The staff went out of their way to make sure that she was always taken care of and received whatever she requested. Staff went out of their way to ensure that her needs were taken care of, including sometimes making trips to a store on their way to work for her.
Courtyard Estates is a beautiful building, well maintained and they care about how it looks and make it look like a home for all of the residents to come home too. They take care of the building inside and out and make sure that it is decorated for all holidays.This is a small community and yet they have gone out of their way to make sure the residents of Courtyard have enough planned activities that everyone can find something to enjoy.
The activities are both activities that can be joined onsite as well as trips to stores and events in the community. Courtyard has a van that is also available to assist with physician visits.
We are very happy with Courtyard. Mom seems very satisfied and happy here! Thanks for all you do for her.
I am so impressed with the caring loving attitude of the staff from top to bottom. This facility is a real blessing to us as a family of a tenant.
We want to thank you and your staff again for all the wonderful care you gave our mom Dixie while she resided at the Legacy Estates.
The activities you have for the residents are great. Mom on her good days loved to have Jan do her hair. The family get togethers at the holiday season were very nice. Mom loved all the food there, hat is what she talked about a lot of the time was the good food.
We can’t say enough nice and good things about the Legacy, you and the staff.
If anyone would happen to ask us about the Legacy we will sure recommend it highly.
Thank you very much again! We will stop in once in awhile to see the people we got to know there.
Also I wanted to mention that we cannot say enough good things about Teresa, she is wonderful, she was so good with mom and she sure helped us when we needed any help too.
The staff at Courtyard is excellent. Very friendly, positive, and caring. My family feels very fortunate to have my mother living at Courtyard. It is a great addition to the Sullivan Community.
A Big Happy Holidays to you, The Village, Residents & Friends. Also, a big thank you for letting the Lawrence family use your private dining room for our Christmas Dinner. When we first considered having the family come to the village for Christmas dinner, we were concerned that it might not be a good idea. But after the dinner & afternoon together it was agreed that the decision was the best idea of the year!
Mom was happy that she did not have to get out in the cold The room was perfect and decorated very nice. We were impressed and pleased that you & the staff sopped by several times to see if we were doing all right and to see if we needed anything. Again a big thank you to you & The Village. Christmas could never have been better.
We are so appreciated of everything all of you did for our mother Joyce. This was the best possible situation for her. We could tell that you all loved her and cared for her and she loved the way you helped her. Thank you so much for all you did.
Respite Care for the Caregiver
A little respite goes a long way toward a healthy life balance.
Short breaks in the ongoing routine of caregiving can rejuvenate the caregiver with a well-deserved vacation, by allowing more time for family and friends, or with just getting a good night’s sleep!

Our professional staff is available 24-hours a day to give prompt care, so our attention is always focused on our residents. Medications are accurately managed to ensure proper and timely dosage.
