Memory Special Care Unit at Loretto Health & Rehabilitation

Our new, secured Memory Special Care Unit (MSCU) follows the mission of Loretto to help us better serve an important need in our community – serving those living with advanced stages of memory loss.

The Memory Special Care Unit focuses on improving the well-being of individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementing illnesses to support the person behind the dementia in meeting the challenges of their late-life stages, by anticipating needs and providing comfort, autonomy, and security.
