Memory care in Ottawa

If you’re looking for support for a loved one or spouse living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, Amica The Glebe will offer premium Memory Care in Ottawa. Opening in Spring 2022, Amica The Glebe boasts a safe and nurturing environment on a dedicated Memory Care floor complete with a Memory Care spa and a safe outdoor terrace with garden beds and a walking circuit. From architecturally designed accessible suites to an inviting dining room serving daily meals prepared by on-site chefs, our dedicated setting ensures around-the-clock support for residents in Memory Care and peace of mind for families.

Caring and certified staff
Certified in dementia care, our staff are passionate about providing attentive care to help residents find joy and purpose every day while living with changes related to cognitive aging. We also offer support for families during and after the transition to senior living in Ottawa. Our carefully developed Memory Care program was created by cognitive aging specialist Dr. Heather Palmer, a former Research Director for the Alzheimer’s Society.

While other senior living operators may base their staffing on annual budgets, Amica residences are staffed specifically to meet the actual care needs of our residents. This means that as our residents require more support, we are able to provide it by increasing the size of our teams. It’s as simple as that.

All care needs are overseen by a Director of Wellness – a Registered Nurse selected for their education, experience, clinical background, and expertise working with seniors. A Wellness Coordinator helps organize care services for every resident. Residents and family members alike appreciate knowing that a Registered Nurse is on duty around the clock and that the same friendly, certified aides will be providing your loved ones with assistance every day.

Engaging activities
We provide innovative group activities and one-on-one time to cater to each senior’s interests and well-being. Residents experience fond memories while attending specialized music workshops, express their creative side during hands-on workshops, or find purpose in volunteering around the residence. You can expect exceptional personalized support customized to the unique needs of every senior in Memory Care at Amica The Glebe.
