The Christopher Center: 
Memory Care at Our Lady of Hope

Our Lady of Hope's Christopher Center provides sensitive, effective and person-specific memory care for residents with Alzheimer's and other dementia care needs.

The Christopher Center includes two memory care pavilions, each featuring a bright atrium with a central area made up of a nurse’s station, sunroom, dining room, and activity room. Resident suites surround and expand out from these central areas. In order to provide familiarity and recognition, each suite features a Memory Box just outside the door that showcases a resident's personal photos and mementos. In addition, all of the indoor spaces are lit in such a way as to create a calm ambiance and a secure courtyard allows residents to enjoy the outdoors whenever they like.

The Reflections Memory Care Program at Our Lady of Hope offers a fresh perspective on memory care.  Specialized training, careful selection of caregivers, and a resident-focused approach are hallmarks of the Reflections program.

Employees using the Reflections program are required to complete an intensive 15-hour training course.  This in-depth training—as well as individualized resident care plans, the specialized environment of the Christopher Center, and the Daily Fare activity schedule—is unique to the Reflections program.

Our team incorporates the most up-to-date therapeutic approaches as well as reminiscence, art, music, and pet therapies, and sensory stimulation into daily life.   Our goal is to enhance resident engagement, provide opportunities for success based on current abilities, and to build positive relationships among residents, families, and caregivers.

About the Logo  The Reflections logo plays on the meaning of the word “reflection” and is a representation of the forget-me-not flower.  Several folklore legends explain the flower’s meaning, all relating to the idea of “not forgetting” the devotion of a dear loved one or Christ’s love for his children.  Blue is the color of trust, calm, and peace.
