Memory Care to enhance abilities and maintain dignity through patience, guidance and understanding.

Offering: The Atwater.

The Atwater Memory Care Assisted Living at McLean offers memory support in a personal setting. Care is designed to allow residents to live each day in a stimulating environment designed for their own unique cognitive needs. Our program features:

  • Family-focused memory care
  • Life enriching programming
  • Restaurant-style dining with three meals daily

Recognizing that those with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia deserve an enriching, fulfilling life, McLean created The Atwater. Located in a separate neighborhood within the McLean Assisted Living Center, The Atwater provides the environment and the lifestyle those with memory loss deserve . . . and, it provides their families with the security and peace of mind they need.

Our Community . . . Encouraging Openness & Choice.

Unlike most traditional memory care communities, we believe in a less inhibiting approach to care . . . The Atwater provides an environment that encourages openness and choice rather than a closed, locked unit. Our design and approach, coupled with cutting-edge monitoring technology, empowers residents to lead an engaging and fulfilling lifestyle in a secure, barrier-free environment.

Life at The Atwater Includes:

  • A small, intimate neighborhood where residents bond, share and enjoy a family feeling
  • Specially educated Care Partners who genuinely care for the residents they serve as they provide care, engagement and stimulation
  • A Program Director with extensive experience in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • A Wellness Nurse oversees daily care and supervises the specific plan of care for each resident 

Our Lifestyle . . . Familiar, Comfortable, Active.

  • The routine comforts and familiar joys that reassure and help make each day a good day
  • Residents’ individual preferences are as important as hands-on care
  • Meaningful, personalized programs that recognize residents’ passions
  • Participation in daily routines of neighborhood life
  • Comfortable Country Kitchen and family-style dining encourages engagement and healthy eating
