At Cristwood Retirement Community, we work together with families to support the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of our residents. Family involvement is encouraged and appreciated. We welcome hearing about the personality, culture, faith, education, habits, and interests of our residents so we can best serve them with love and dignity.

We work hard to honor our residents as individuals, not just as patients. Family involvement includes care conferences, volunteer opportunities, daily visits, and open communication regarding the care of your loved one.

We provide a continuum of support for people with dementia and memory loss.


For those with mild to moderate memory care needs, Poplar Place—at The Courtyard Assisted Living facility—provides a safe neighborhood with a specifically designed memory care program and specially trained staff.


As resident memory care needs progress, you and your care team may consider Dogwood Terrace, a secure memory community at Cristwood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Cristwood memory care programs promote resident independence while offering a safe environment and care for those with memory loss.
