Alzheimer’s Family Support and Resources


Posted on: August 17th, 2021 by | No Comments

Across Iowa and nationwide, many people living with Alzheimer’s disease are cared for by family members–an arrangement that offers many positives for the caregiver and the person being cared for. NewAldaya Lifescapes helps Iowa families provide the best possible Alzheimer’s support through our memory care and assisted living solutions, as well as our partnership with LeadingAge Iowa. 

Memory Care at NewAldaya Lifescapes

Founded in 2015, the 20-bed Memory Care House at NewAldaya Lifescapes is a safe, secure residence that protects and cares for your loved ones while adhering to the most rigorous healthcare and memory care standards. Our Memory Care House includes two living arrangements: 12 private rooms each with its own full bath, and eight private rooms with a shared full bath. The Memory Care House wouldn’t have been possible without our partnership with LeadingAge Iowa, which has provided invaluable support in the form of research and staff training. Thanks to LeadingAge Iowa, our caring team is equipped with all of the tools necessary to support your loved one, including the most current information about Alzheimer’s and dementia.

In addition to its comfortable living environs, the Memory Care House offers state-of-the-art technology via our “It’s Never 2 Late” system. This groundbreaking approach offers special training for each resident of our Memory Care community and helps them maintain the highest level of cognitive functioning. Additionally, we offer a full suite of amenities that includes three private outdoor areas with a covered patio, garden, and green space, a full-service spa and medi-suite, and two open-concept, family-style great rooms.
