Alzheimer's and Dementia Care in Denver, CO
Honoring the memories of yesterday, respecting the moments of today.
We believe the stigma around people with dementia is caused by a lack of understanding and fear. But that can change when someone you know and love is diagnosed with dementia.
At The Ridge Pinehurst, we know everyone has different memories, talents and interests. That’s what makes us all unique. Our approach to dementia care celebrates each resident’s personal life experiences and focuses on the abilities they still retain. To do this, we build a strong personal connection between staff and residents, and educate friends and family members on how they can partner with us.
We believe that by providing attentive and creative support, people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can enjoy a higher quality of life filled with purpose, joy, and contentment. Our memory care philosophy is even a part of the thoughtful layout and design of our community to ensure your loved one feels and stays safe.

Dementia care designed to promote independence
At The Ridge Pinehurst, we feature the innovative Montessori Approach for Dementia, which focuses on giving the power of making life decisions back to the individual whenever possible to help preserve their individuality.
Rather than defining all people with dementia as having one set of needs and abilities (and disabilities), the Montessori Method recognizes each person as unique. What can they accomplish? What brings them joy? Where do they need assistance? We’ve found adopting this approach helps foster greater independence for as long as possible.
Our Memory Care Community Is Pet-Friendly
As part of our unique approach to dementia care, we encourage residents to keep their beloved pets with them in memory care. That special bond with a pet can be a significant source of companionship and purpose. Learn more about how pets improve quality of life for people with dementia.
