Arbors Memory Care Community is located in Sparks, Nevada just 1 mile north of Interstate 80 — one block east of the corner of Vista Blvd and Prater Way, just down the hill from Northern Nevada Medical Center.
The Arbors is owned and operated by the Stutchman Family. For over 40 years their research, planning and development in senior housing and Alzheimer’s care has produced successful and respected facilities in Northern Nevada. One of the many benefits to being family owned is the flexibility to create personalized programs and solutions for each resident.
The family and the dedicated staff at the Arbors truly enjoy the chance to make life better for our residents and their families.
Arbors Memory Care Community specializes in the care of people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Its unique design was developed by the Stutchman family after extensive research and study. They visited multiple facilities across the nation and analyzed how residents interacted with their physical environment. The resulting community provides an inviting comfortable setting where programs, services, building and grounds empower, guide and comfort individuals with memory illness.
The Arbors offers private and companion suites in a comfortable neighborhood environment. Design features, such as visual cues and walking paths, help residents stay independent in finding their way. Memory boxes with photos of early life and biographies highlighting life achievements add to a sense of belonging. A light cheery and spacious environment throughout the building offers many community areas for socializing as well as quiet spots to sit and relax in peace. Our two 1500 square foot atriums complete with live plants, birds and plenty of natural light are perfect for those days that our Nevada weather turns extreme.
Our 3 acre site is fenced with wrought iron lined with roses and vines allowing for security without the feel of confinement. The outdoor spaces are perfect for exercise, gardening, BBQ’s, gathering flowers, bird watching and many other wonderful outdoor experiences.
Our philosophy of care is based upon respect, patience, dignity and the encouragement of independence. We believe this means enhanced quality of life for your loved one with memory loss and for your family as a whole. I n understanding and attending to the unique needs and personal preferences of each individual, our residents receive the respect they deserve and encouragement to be as independent as possible.
We accomplish this by working closely with our resident’s families to discover any personal hobbies or career highs that we can emphasize while establishing our relationship and a plan of care. We believe that even in the midst of the challenges that a memory illness can create, moments of joy can be found.
