Memory Care in Puyallup, WA

Over 120,000 seniors in Washington are impacted by Alzheimer’s, the primary form of dementia. Connections is an evidence-based dementia care program that assists seniors and their loved ones in Puyallup.

Our memory care specialists inspire seniors with dementia to stay active socially and pursue interests. Our team recognizes that attentive listening is sometimes an essential form of support for your loved one, in addition to healthcare.

For seniors dealing with chronic injuries or illnesses, skilled nursing homes may be a better option than other places for memory care near Tacoma, which may not prioritize fulfilling lifestyles.

Connections: Supporting Memory Care Family Members

Alzheimer’s and dementia do not only affect memory care residents. Family members’ lives are also impacted, and the Connections program is here to offer support. Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed by caregiving responsibilities or struggling to cope with changes in your loved one, our program provides a range of resources designed to help you navigate this journey with compassion and understanding.

  • Monthly support groups: Connect with others impacted by dementia and learn how to cope with the challenges through facilitated support groups in partnership with local senior living professionals and hospice providers.
  • Educational resources: Access information about dementia, including symptoms, treatment options, and care strategies, through educational resources such as articles, videos, and webinars.
  • Family involvement: Involve families in resident care and planning through regular care conferences. Family members can share their thoughts and concerns and work collaboratively with care staff.
  • Family events: Participate in special celebrations that provide opportunities for residents and their loved ones to engage in joyful, meaningful activities that instill purpose.
  • Caregiver training: Connections team members receive ongoing training from Dr. Petersen and other accredited sources to provide top-rated care, activities, and family communication.

Welcome to The Rivers at Puyallup!

Hi, I’m Patricia, the Executive Director. I became interested in senior living when I became a caregiver at an assisted living facility (ALF) 20 years ago. I met a resident with whom I bonded immediately. The bond we shared made me who I am today. She made me feel needed and gave me a sense of purpose in life.
