Renew Saddle Rock Memory Care in Aurora was built from the ground-up in 2016, with every detail of the design and furnishings chosen with memory care residents in mind. Security and safety features have been incorporated into every area of the facility.
Modeled after a high-end, single-family home, Renew has a great room with an open kitchen, covered porches, beautiful courtyards with continuous loop walking paths, a day room for games and activities, and a fully-equipped beauty salon.
The open-format kitchen allows residents to enjoy the sights, sounds, and delicious smells of home-cooked meals that are made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. A registered dietician is on hand to design menu choices customized to each resident’s needs.
Renew Saddle Rock exclusively offers memory care for residents who have Alzheimer’s, dementia, or memory issues. There are 40 rooms at Saddle Rock – 20 private rooms and 20 semi-private rooms, with shared or private bathrooms.
While many other assisted living and memory care communities focus on care, with a handful of activities spread throughout the day or week, Renew does the opposite. Attention is given – first and foremost – to keeping residents engaged and experiencing a high quality of life. This is promoted through individual and group activities that are fun, stimulating, and therapeutic. Regular group outings and activities are also scheduled for residents.
Pets are allowed at Renew Saddle Rock – cats and dogs, although they must weigh less than 35 pounds.
Please note: Renew Saddle Rock Memory Care doesn’t accept Medicaid.
