The factors behind the innovative programs and practices offered at Hearthstone Residences.

Hearthstone is internationally known for its widely adopted innovations in memory care. Innovation is one of our defining differences … in fact we have developed most of the inspirational, cutting-edge programming the senior care industry now considers best practices in memory care.

Our extensive experience has proven that the years following an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis can be filled with opportunities to create positive, enriching experiences that enable people with memory loss to live engaged, purposeful and fulfilling lives.

For more than 25 years our countless tools, programs and games have inspired and engaged residents – not only in our own Hearthstone Residences, but in memory care communities across the country.

I’m Still Here® – Centers of Excellence

Part of our mission at Hearthstone is to take what we’ve learned from our extensive research and share it with other memory care communities so that their residents – and families – can enjoy a renewed sense of purpose and fulfillment. Communities that complete our comprehensive I’m Still Here Training Program receive designation as an I’m Still Here Center of Excellence.  

  • “Hearthstone’s I’m Still Here Approach to Alzheimer’s/Dementia care really works. It’s been a year now and mom is doing well. For anyone in need of memory care, I recommend Hearthstone without hesitation. Thank you, again, to all the wonderful folks at Hearthstone … and thank you for giving our family peace of mind.”
