Memory Care

Memory Care

In 1997 the doors of Spanish Oaks Retreat opened and a new standard of long-term care began. Spanish Oaks Retreat was developed with the Alzheimer’s patient in mind. The Retreat, as we call it, is designed to have a home-like feel that promotes autonomy while providing the care and safety the Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients need. The facility is 100% secure, yet patients have the ability to move freely throughout the interior of the building and have access to secured outdoor areas. The 36-unit facility is comprised of four wings, and each patient room is private with a complete bathroom. Every wing has its own great room, community TV and lounge area for relaxing and socializing. The Retreat utilizes all four wings of the facility to help individualize patient care, while not prohibiting patient’s mobility. In addition, a large indoor greenhouse brings the beauty of the surrounding grounds into the residents’ daily lives.


Spanish Oaks Retreats nutritional program is founded on three home-cooked meals a day, with special attention paid to individual patient likes and dislikes and personalized nutritional needs. The dietary specialists at the Retreat are trained to ensure the nutritional well being of each patient, accommodating any diet-related health or safety concerns. In addition to balanced meals, daily snacks and beverages are provided for all residents and daycare.

    Spanish Oaks Hospice was great. I cannot think of a single time that a staff member assisted us and we did not feel cared for and looked after. Our family appreciates the devotion and caring attitude of the entire staff. Thanks for making this difficult time much easier to deal with.

    There is so much I could say but it all came down to this: From beginning to end the entire Spanish Oaks team was the best that I could ask for. Everyone gave us excellent care.
