Secure Assisted Living with Memory Care in Southbury, CT
Secure assisted living with memory care is the pinnacle of person-centered care.
Pomperaug Woods’ nationally recognized secure assisted living with memory care takes a personalized approach to memory care assisted living that’s designed to encourage residents to remain as independent and active as possible while they progress through the stages of memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
Earlier care leads to a more tranquil and fulfilling life.
Traditional memory care programs are fine for end-stage Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care. But here at Pomperaug Woods, we believe the earlier a senior transitions to memory care assisted living, the easier that transition will be. Here your loved one will flourish with life-affirming activities and personalized care.
We call our approach Heartfelt Connections – A Memory Care Program®.
There is no one-size-fits-all-approach to dementia care. That’s why our secure assisted living with memory care is built on the foundation of our innovative Heartfelt CONNECTIONS – A Memory Care Program®.
Our person-centered memory care assisted living program starts with our specially trained staff getting to know each individual and their family support system, not just the effects of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We focus on their history, likes, dislikes, and supportive loved ones so we can provide individualized care that celebrates each resident’s abilities.
This unique approach allows us to provide a more active and engaged lifestyle for residents in early stages of memory loss and a smoother transition as they progress to later stages. This longer transition period helps our residents feel more comfortable with their surroundings as they progress through their memory loss journey, and it’s also easier on our staff to get to know each individual better so we can provide better care.

If additional skilled nursing care is needed, Pomperaug Woods is uniquely equipped to meet those needs with highly specialized care.

Dementia is an overarching term referring to cognitive decline that impacts a person’s everyday life. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia.

Yes. Team members are specially trained in person-centered memory care. These caregivers provide dignified, respectful care with compassion.
