The Memory Support Center at Brecon Village

Be confident!

Owned and operated by EHM Senior Solutions, The Memory Support Center is a licensed specialized community located on the campus of Brecon Village in a quiet residential neighborhood close to historic downtown Saline, Michigan and just a few miles from iconic Ann Arbor.  

Nestled on 32 acres of professionally landscaped grounds and surrounded by secure courtyards, The Memory Support Center offers private studios with spacious bathrooms in three distinct households of up to twelve residents each.  Equipped with an innovative and unobtrusive technological monitoring system, the community is perfectly designed to provide a safe haven where older adults living with memory loss and dementia are supported in a calm, relaxing setting.

The community offers a chapel and reflection room, gathering spaces for art and cultural events, a fitness center and dedicated wellness coach, spa tub and massage area, and family-style household kitchens and dining areas designed to encourage residents to assist with meal preparation in order to enhance their dining and living experiences.

The Memory Support Center at Brecon Village is a certified Best Friends™ environment.  Often those living with memory loss experience confusion, anxiety and fear. To address those challenges, the program features a low ratio of personal assistants to residents who are trained to provide friendship and personal care entrenched in the Best Friends™ philosophy of care.  This approach suggests that what a person with dementia needs most of all is a friend, a Best Friend. This can be a family member, friend, or staff member who empathizes with their situation, remains loving and positive, and is dedicated to helping the person feel safe, secure and valued.

The Best Friends™ Approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

The Best Friends™ Approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

This comprehensive approach is grounded in the understanding that relationships are supremely important in dementia care and require the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, and humor.  The Best Friends™ Approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care is completely person-centered and flexible enough to adapt to each person’s remaining strengths and abilities, focusing on providing joy, purpose and meaning to every resident’s day.

The Best Friends™ Approach begins with seven basic building blocks that redefines how we enhance the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.  

  • Recognizing the basic rights of a person with dementia
  • Understanding what it is like to live with memory loss and dementia
  • Knowing and using the person’s Life Story
  • Knowing just what to say when communication is breaking down
  • Developing the ‘Knack’ of great dementia care
  • Experiencing meaningful engagement throughout the dayRecasting the relationship and language used from staff to Best Friend.
