Specialized and Safe Care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

Seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease require a special level of care to ensure their comfort and safety. Munson Healthcare's specially trained staff cares for our patients with memory care needs, including hospital-based care at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital in Frankfort.

In addition, Munson Healthcare’s Medicare Five-Star rated Eden Center, located at Kalkaska Memorial Health Center, includes a 24-bed memory care unit that provides a compassionate and safe setting with decreased stimulation to help residents remain calm and content.

The Eden Center operates under the Eden Alternative® philosophy, which focuses on holistic care, including physical, emotional, and social support. Regardless of a person’s medical condition, the Eden Center supports an optimal level of well-being for staff, residents, and their families. By using Eden Alternative® concepts to eliminate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom, we help promote growth and enjoyment of life.

Home Care

Not all seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease need to leave their home to receive skilled, compassionate care. We can augment your care, either part-time or around-the-clock, with the support of the skilled professionals at Munson Healthcare Home Health. In addition, if you need a short break from caring for a family member, respite services are also available through Munson Healthcare Home Health.

Our home care service area includes more than 30 northern Michigan counties.
