We see residents of Memory Care at The Woodlands at Furman as much more than just their illness. They are wonderful people who need care for Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia or memory loss. That’s why we utilize our Landmarks for Living®, a holistic approach that supports residents and their families in unique ways.
We get to know your loved one and develop a specific care plan for them. They have familiar schedules and meaningful activities in a secure, homelike environment. We also promote choices that help them retain and restore independence. And we facilitate family involvement through care planning and visits.
Each Memory Care resident has a private suite with bathroom and access to a secure courtyard, country kitchen and nurses’ station. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and décor so that they can create a familiar and comforting environment. See our private suite floor plan.

Landmarks for Living is a philosophy that embraces the whole person to nurture self-esteem and dignity. In addition to personalized care, we help residents engage in activities that they enjoy, such as gardening, and even housekeeping. Also available are group activities that benefit others, such as making and selling jewelry to support Alzheimer’s research, or decorating pumpkins for local children.
We provide frequent individualized care plan meetings so you can track your loved one’s progress. We can connect you to local support groups that let you interact with other caregivers. We also offer referral and respite services.
Our fully trained staff gets to know your loved one – their history, their likes and dislikes, and preferred schedule. This nurturing relationship often improves interactions, helps reduce behavior problems, and can result in a reduction in medication needs.
