The new Memory Lane program utilizes the help of well-trained Memory Care Specialists, Dabbs wrote in a press release about the program.

“Our Memory Care Specialists have been provided rigorous training related to the care of those afflicted with memory impairment, and are available around the clock to ensure that all interactions are guided by evidence-based interventions that encourage cognitive processing,” the release states.

Dabbs also said the Memory Lane program will expand Liberty Village’s current admission criteria so that they can admit a larger number of people who would benefit most from the program.
