Dementia and Memory Care Community in Parma

Helpful and Caring Memory Care Near You

Looking for memory care for a loved one near you? At Mount Alverna Village’s memory care community, you’ll find heartfelt assistance and quality senior care services for your loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia. We know it can be challenging for caregivers of seniors with memory issues, but we are here to provide a helping hand for you and your family. You can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing our specialized team of professionals is providing 24-hour memory care for your loved one, in a safe and secure environment.

Our residents are encouraged to participate in a variety of life-enhancing activities, both inside and outside the community, to stimulate the mind and provide social interaction with others.  We aim to help our seniors maintain their sense of independence, while offering the support they need to thrive and live joyfully.

NOW OPEN: Ancora Memory Care Community

Our brand new memory care community, Ancora Memory Care, embodies the Latin word “ancora” which means anchor. Early Christians adopted the anchor as a symbol of safety and hope. Our memory care services are a refuge for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia – we provide the stability, safety and hope our residents and families can lean on when times are confusing and uncertain.

We have 42 private, fully-furnished studio apartments in two wings. Our open floor plan is easy for residents to navigate and encourages socialization and interaction in the community. In addition to beautiful, fully supervised outdoor spaces, we also have private areas where families can host special celebrations for their loved one.

Ancora was designed to impact the overall well-being and quality of life for residents with dementia. It provides maximum comfort, functionality and safety within a reduced-stress environment while offering sensory stimulation. Interior colors and design throughout our memory care community were intentional to assist with wayfinding when your loved one explores their home.

Ancora is currently taking reservations. Please call (440) 663-1115.

"The friendliness of all the residents and staff. . . the "Good Mornings" and "Good Afternoons" said with a smile. That truly makes my day."

Lee S., resident of Franciscan Communities

"As the song goes "There's no place like home." My place here is "home sweet home." Employees provide service with kindness and there's so many good people to talk to."

Bernard S., Franciscan Communities Resident

"Mt. Alverna has such a friendly and caring personality and atmosphere. The skilled care helped me achieve independence and regain strength. Even the social activities reinforce physical therapy. I am blessed to have been able to rehab at this facility this past Spring."
