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.

My first year here at Courtyard Estates, I have received wonderful care and kindness from the staff. This Holiday Season I look forward to sharing my new home with my family and friends.
I have been a resident of Courtyard Estates since December of 2016. My apartment is very comfortable and the staff keeps it very clean. Everyone here is efficient and cheerful. My family is very pleased with my move here.
Moving into Courtyard Estates has been like coming home as I had grown up in this area. The staff here plus my family and friends have made it feel like home.
Our first year living here at Courtyard Estates has surpassed all of our expectations. The staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. We look forward to living her throughout the upcoming years.
You want to know the process of moving mom into Courtyard and why we chose Courtyard. This may be a little hard for you to hear, but you were one of the main reasons – your personal attention to mom’s needs and our family. You listened to our concerns and took action.
The move was so easy and the transition was so smooth that the process seemed seamless. Mom lived in her house one day, with all the worries and headaches of homeownership, and the next day she woke up in a new, wonderful facility. The headaches and worries of day to day living were lifted off her shoulders. And her 4 children all believe this will add quality and quaintly of days to her life.
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 expert caretakers are specially trained in Alzheimer’s and dementia care issues. 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. Tenants are carefully monitored to keep hydrated. Three balanced meals and home-baked snacks, planned by a registered dietitian, are lovingly prepared right in our own kitchens each day. Housekeeping and laundry services are provided on a daily basis in all of our memory care facilities.
