    Highlights
    We are built specifically for a Memory Care Community. We take care of our neighbors suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other dementia's only.We are a specialized Home. PERSON- CENTERED CARE FOR A PERSON WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE OR DEMENTIA, HAVING CAREGIVERS WHO UNDERSTAND CAN MAKE ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. Gowin Parc resident specialists have been selected for their compassion and experience. Person centered care nurtures the individual's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. With approximately one resident specialist for every six people during daytime hours, everyone is free to pursue enjoyable activities that promote independence, preserve self-esteem, and most importantly, exercise cognitive function. PROMOTING SUCCESS AT GOWIN PARC WE FOCUS ON ABILITIES RATHER THAN DISABILITIES. Activity is a key component of that philosophy. Something as simple as folding laundry can help those with Alzheimer's feel at ease and reassured. Gardening, carpentry, exercise, crafts, baking, and music programs serve to stimulate memory and self-expression. AN EXTENDED FAMILY WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE JOINS GOWIN PARC SO DO YOU. Family and friends are a vital part of the ongoing care provided by our staff. We respect life and the aging process as one of Life's greatest gifts.

Focused on facilitating our neighbors with Alzheimer's needs, the Concierge is here to make each neighbor and family member as comfortable as possible.
