Why is Longhouse Northgate Memory Care a better choice than the "big box" memory care communities?

In my 25 years of experience serving seniors, I have come to believe that "smaller is better" when it comes to seniors with memory care challenges or other chronic conditions. The smaller size leads to a more peaceful, centered, rich life of close relationships and superior care. Everything you love is close, including access to grass, caregivers, friends, and food.

Are incontinence supplies included in the Longhouse Northgate Memory Care monthly rate?

Yes, our monthly rate includes room, board, care, and incontinence supplies.
