About Iris Memory Care of Edmond
Personalized Memory Care
Every resident, every moment...
Iris Memory Care takes compassionate dementia care in a new direction, crafting personalized solutions to assist residents with activities of daily living and help them cope with the emotional challenges of memory loss.
As an assisted living community specializing in memory care, Iris offers around-the-clock support in a homelike environment — providing palliative care to maintain comfort and preserve dignity. With leading-edge approaches to stimulate the mind and improve the mood, Iris Memory Care fosters positive interactions designed to enhance the joys of living in the moment.
Safe and Secure
Iris Memory Care is made up of two homes with a maximum of 20 residents each. By limiting the number of residents served, we're able to provide the level of care that's so essential to enhancing your loved one's quality of life. Each building is designed to look and feel like a high-end single-family home, yet we also have targeted safety and security features to meet the unique needs of our residents.
Our secure environment won't stand in your way of connecting with your loved one. Day or night, weekday or weekend, you're always welcome to spend cherished moments together!
From the moment you walk through our front door, the familiar sights, sounds, and aromas invite you to engage with your loved one in a comfortable, stimulating environment. The kitchen is traditionally known as the heart of the home, and at Iris Memory Care it serves as the heart of the community! Our open-concept kitchen encourages residents and visitors to interact with cooks as they prepare classic dishes with fresh seasonal ingredients. Menus include meals your loved one will be familiar with, as well as family recipes shared by others. The food is only part of the dining experience; the sensory cues and social interactions that go along with each meal are equally important.
Past Meets Present
Our specially trained caregivers use informed, innovative approaches that are rooted in compassion and delivered with dignity. It's quite common for residents with memory impairment to visit past experiences throughout the day. Rather than challenging or correcting their observations, we join and support them on their journey.
Personalized Paths of Care
Every resident experiences the challenges of memory loss in a different way — and a routine that works well today may not be as effective tomorrow. That's why we provide Personalized Paths of Care with the flexibility to adapt to the moment.
When a new resident joins our community, we partner with families to gather an extensive social and life history of their loved one. This equips us with valuable insights about past events, relationships, hobbies and interests that allow us to personalize a course of care. By empathizing with your loved one and relating to the event or emotion they're experiencing, we're able to ask questions and provide gentle redirection to offer comfort in the moment.
Built on Experience
The founders of Iris Memory Care themselves have struggled with the emotions of having to place loved ones in memory care communities. After realizing that most communities are institutional in nature and often treat memory care as an afterthought, they set out to create a homelike model of care exclusively for residents with dementia — a concept based on Compassion, Dignity, and Comfort. The Iris Memory Care team is excited to bring this leading-edge approach to Oklahoma, with expertly designed communities, multi-sensory activities, and specially trained staff members that center around the unique needs of memory care residents.
