Not Your Average Senior Living Community

There are so many things that make Aspen Ridge Memory Care unique, but according to Simeon Purkey, the office administrator, it’s their programming, physical environment and staff that truly set them apart.

The team at Aspen Ridge Memory Care utilize the Montessori approach to memory care programming; instead of focusing on what their residents can’t do, they focus on what they can do. The physical environment at Aspen Ridge is made to feel like home. The extraordinary staff at Aspen Ridge is passionate about helping people with cognitive impairment, and the management is consistently furthering their staff’s education to help them better serve their residents.

We asked Simeon why they do what they do at Aspen Ridge Memory Care and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“We are here to enrich the lives of our residents and to empower individuals who are passionate about providing care to those with cognitive impairment. We seek to expose the extraordinary capacities in those with cognitive disabilities, and to change the conversation about cognitive impairment in general in order to create deeper and more meaningful relationships with those with cognitive impairment.”

Building Success Through a Holistic Approach to Care

Simeon credits Aspen Ridge Memory Care’s strong online reputation to the holistic approach they take to caring for their residents. With this approach, they challenge what’s possible in memory care, giving choice and ownership back to their residents.

The team at Aspen Ridge Memory Care makes it a point to engage with their community, and in return, their community engages with them.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Aspen Ridge Memory Care has grown by investing in their staff. In fact, investing in their staff — by increasing pay, giving staff the time and resources they need and by being present when they need them — was their focus throughout last year. They found that when they give their staff the tools they need to provide holistic care, in return, the staff provides exceptional care that has helped the business grow.

We asked Simeon what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are the words of wisdom he shared with us:

“Invest in your staff. Make sure your staff is take care of, and they will be equipped to best serve the residents.”

Congratulations to the team at Aspen Ridge Memory Care for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Simeon, for taking the time to speak with us!
