Our exceptional caregivers at Trulee Evanston know it’s often the little things that have the biggest impact for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. That’s why we meet with family members and loved ones to develop an individualized care plan for each person that honors and respects their life story.
We call our approach Aspyre Memory Care, and it is centered on learning each person’s likes and dislikes, in what part of the day do they function best, their favorite activities and more. It’s all part of helping to create an encouraging experience that feels familiar, with the support of highly experienced team members who are on-site 24 hours a day.

Questions & Answers
Normal forgetfulness is part of the aging process and usually begins in middle age. However, there is a great difference between occasionally forgetting your keys and dementia. People with dementia cannot retrieve information and in most cases, lose the ability of how to remember. Dementia can be a variety of diagnosis. The most common is Alzheimer’s, a severe, progressive loss of recent memory and thinking ability.
A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect that your loved one’s memory loss is disrupting their daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.
A quality Memory Care program provides countless benefits such as safety, nutrition and professional support. Activities and programs provide mental stimulation and interaction, especially when drawn from that individual’s life experiences. Therapeutic tools such as music and art can awaken the senses and provide moments of personal success. In addition, many Memory Care residents benefit from the enriching ambiance of a senior living community that also includes Independent Living and Assisted Living.
