Aurum’s Memory Care unit offers a safe, secure and comfortable environment for our residents.
Our memory care team includes Neurologists, physicians, ICU-trained nurses and experienced caregivers that work round-the-clock to ensure a better quality of life for our residents. Dementia Care team at Aurum is well-trained to identify, manage and treat the symptoms of dementia and the precaution required to care for the resident.
