Memory Care

Peace of mind simply comes with the right care.

River Glen of St. Charles offers a warm, home-like environment designed to care for and nurture residents who are experiencing memory loss and dementia including Alzheimer’s disease. Most residents transition from our independent townhomes or assisted living care, but there are occasional openings for individuals from the community at large.

Heartfelt CONNECTIONS A Memory Care Program®

For individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, Heartfelt CONNECTIONS – A Memory Care Program® promotes physical and emotional well-being, supports daily functioning and maintains a sense of satisfaction, dignity and quality of life.

Best of all, it gives back the control you lost when your loved one was diagnosed with memory loss. You can get back to being who your loved one wants you to be: a daughter, a son, a grandchild or a spouse again.
