You’ve come to the right place

Caring for a loved one with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia can be one of life’s toughest challenges. Please know—you are not alone.

The team at Memory Haven is here to help.

Exceptional memory care in Sumner.

Located near Salmon Creek, Memory Haven is dedicated to serving older adults with a diagnosis of dementia. Our professional care team is here for your loved one’s every need.

Our goal is to improve your loved one’s sense of well-being through emotional support, familiarity, and connection.

Our Approach to Memory Care

Your loved one will have a straightforward routine for day-to-day tasks and will be encouraged to be as independent as possible. By accomplishing tasks independently, your loved one will feel a sense of achievement, which brings pride, control, self-esteem, and fulfillment.

This balanced approach has proven to ensure happiness and quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. As a result, your loved one will experience a lift in mood and outlook as well as improved overall health and well-being.

Our Holistic Approach to Memory Care is based on Eight Core Principles

Personal Care & Activities of Daily Living

Your loved one may need help with their personal care or activities of daily living. With warm smiles, gentle touches, and encouraging words, we will assist them with personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, and oral care), dressing, eating, incontinence management, and transfers, such as moving from seated to standing, as well as, getting in and out of bed.

Social Interaction

Studies demonstrate that people with healthy connections and relationships have greater emotional well-being, live healthier lives, and have longer life expectancies. We will encourage your loved one to participate in programs and activities that help them make those connections, stimulate socialization, and give them an enhanced sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging. Social hours, celebrations, barbecues, ice cream socials, and sharing stories are a few examples of our social activities that can create a sense of joy and purpose.

Emotional Support

Our attentive, 24-hour care team is here to enrich your loved one’s life through the highest standards of safety, care, dignity, and respect. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved one is in great hands.

Physical Activity

Leading a physically active lifestyle can significantly impact everyone’s well-being—including those with all forms of dementia. Exercise is beneficial for both physical and mental health and may improve the quality of life for people in all stages of their dementia. We offer physical activities such as walking, gardening, or dancing, as well as sports and exercises with the aim of improving fitness, building strength, and providing fun for your loved one.

Mental Stimulation

Research shows that cognitive stimulation can help slow the decline of dementia in its early stages. Our Program will engage your loved one in meaningful activities to stimulate cognitive function while addressing individual needs. Playing games, working with puzzles, or doing practical activities such as writing or folding laundry are some of the ways we can help your loved one engage their brains.

Life Enrichment Activities

Specially designed for people living with dementia and related illnesses, our personalized life enrichment activities strive to maximize independence while focusing on individual strengths and abilities. Your loved one will safely engage in activities such as picnics, arts and crafts, walks through the courtyard, cards, and games. From book clubs to puzzles, trivia games to movies, and much more, we strive to keep your loved one informed and engaged. Our goal is to provide a meaningful quality of life every day.

Artistic Expression

Art and music can provide powerful opportunities for connection for those with memory loss. We encourage artistic expression by offering your loved one’s chances to express themselves using a variety of mediums. Activities include crafts, decorative arts, and performing arts. Our retirement community also uses music therapy as a tool to bring your loved one happy relaxation or provide toe-tapping fun.

Good Nutrition

Eating a well-balanced meal is essential for overall health. We take pride in preparing nutritious entrées from scratch, served table-side by our caring team members. Our dining program is designed to offer restaurant-style menu choices with regional and traditional cuisine, served in an atmosphere that encourages independence. We welcome and encourage you to join your loved one in our dining experience.

2. How much does it cost to live at Memory Haven in Sumner, WA?

The cost of living in a senior living facility can vary based on location, level of care, apartment type, and personal care options. Most senior living communities will charge a monthly base rate that covers your housing, meals, utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, transportation, and activities. 

The monthly rate will be more expensive for higher levels of care to factor in the extra services that you will receive (e.g., memory care will have a higher monthly base rate than independent living).

Another cost to consider is your care plan. Memory Haven is able to assist with a wide range of personal care needs but you will only be charged for the services that you require. Our Executive Director and Wellness Director (Nurse) will be able to determine the monthly cost of your care plan after completing an assessment and learning more about your unique needs, specific requests, lifestyle, and routine. 

For sample questions on the assessment, visit our Memory Haven FAQ page.

When doing your research on cost, we recommend you take a look at the expenses you are already paying for to determine precisely how much money is already going toward living costs and how that might compare to the monthly cost of your senior living community.

3. What financing options are offered for Sumner, WA, memory care residents?

Many people are able to pay for senior living through a combination of private funds or proceeds from selling a home. If you don’t have enough funds to go this route, there may be assistance available. 

If you were a veteran, you could be entitled to Veterans Aid & Attendance, which can provide up to $2,200 a month to a veteran and their spouse or up to $1,900 a month for a veteran without a dependent. Visit your local Sumner VA center for more information.
