How we're responding to COVID-19


For All Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

At Willow River communities, we welcome residents at all stages of the dementia and Alzheimer’s journey. We dedicate every day to helping our residents THRIVE through emotional, physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual wellness.

Flexible daily routines enable residents to enjoy positive moments and experiences throughout the day. We encourage them to share their feelings, to move when they want to move, to stay engaged through music and art. Residents connect with family and friends in new ways that work for them. Most of all, they find their purpose again.

Our THRIVE Approach

Our holistic approach to wellness and memory care helps residents and their families THRIVE.

What makes the Positive Approach to Care® so effective?

It starts with extending your hand, with understanding, and with the ability to truly step inside the world of someone living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Teepa Snow, a world-renowned memory care expert, trains professional and family caregivers across the country, helping them to build new relationships – to thrive together – through the changes of an aging mind. Her approach has been helping residents succeed across the country for more than 15 years. PAC is recognized as the highest standard of memory care – a model we are proud to follow at each of our senior living communities.

In choosing the Positive Approach to Care, Willow River Senior Living is committed to respecting and adapting our lifestyle for each stage of the dementia journey, to building positive relationships, to educating families, and to empowering our residents.

Each Willow River Senior Living community is a PAC community, with PAC-trained caregivers and team members.
