The Alois Alzheimer Center opened its doors in 1987 as the first community dedicated to the care and treatment of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). Our focus continues to be on preserving the respect, dignity, and quality of life of your loved one.
Alois has the unique ability to transition with your loved one as their care needs change. Our distinct levels of care allow the right care at the right points in their changing physical and cognitive abilities. Each level centers on an environment tailored to their needs - both cognitive and medical.
While many other options have become available, you won't find anything quite like The Alois Alzheimer Center.
The Alois Alzheimer Center is one of several local facilities owned and operated by the Health Care Management Group (HCMG).
The Alois Difference
What makes The Alois Alzheimer Center so unique Simply put, our only focus is providing Alzheimer-related care and services. In fact, we specialize in it.
Our facility is designed with five distinct neighborhoods to meet a resident's ever-changing needs. The activity programming at Alois is also designed around an individual's cognitive functioning level. If needed, we can provide in-house physical, occupational, and speech therapies to residents.
Additionally, The Alois Alzheimer Center offers several programs to the community, including Respite Care and the Adult Enrichment program. We also seek to support research, education, and awareness of Alzheimer's disease through our non-profit organization, The Alois Alzheimer Foundation.
While there are many memory-care facilities available, there are none quite like The Alois Alzheimer Center. Our results speak for themselves:
• Over 88% Family Satisfaction Rate
• (Ohio Department of Aging: Bi-Annual Family Survey)
• Multiple Perfect State Surveys
• (Ohio Department of Health)
• National Quality Award Winner, Step I and Step II (American Health Care Association)
The Alois Alzheimer Center has five unique neighborhoods, designed specifically to transition with your loved ones as his/her care needs change. Each neighborhood is equipped with its own dining room, living room, activity space, and courtyard, giving residents all the space they need to truly feel at home. Each neighborhood is unique allowing Alois to provide care to our residents as their needs change.
The WOODS is located in the right rear quadrant of the community near the Assessment Center. There are 16 private rooms that accommodate residents in the early stages of dementia. The sunroom provides a great seating area for family visitors and looks out onto the lavish courtyard. We also have a beauty salon, living room, activity area, and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy.
The newly remodeled MEADOWS neighborhood is located in the front of the community and offers 13 private rooms. Structured for individuals who are in the early stages of Alzheimer's or related dementia, the Meadows offers specialized activities, bistro-style dining, and access to the beautiful courtyard. Large dining, activity, and living spaces ensure residents have the space they need to feel comfortable in their new home.
The TERRACE is located in the center of the community to the left of the front desk and offers both private and semi-private accommodations. The therapy department is located on the Terrace providing Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapies to all five neighborhoods at Alois. The large dining room and living room areas provide plenty of space for family visitors and offer plenty of quiet relaxing space for our residents, and a beauty salon in the neighborhood offers convenience to our residents. We offer Behavioral Based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET), which uses visual, auditory, aroma, and textile therapy to decrease agitation without the use of psychotropic medications. Our families also find that this program provides numerous options for interaction and engagement during visits.
"Residents living full-time there have enclosed but open-air, safe gardens to explore. It's so nice to be able to go outside and play in the dirt! Very well thought-out." - EA Meyer
The COMMONS provides care to our residents that struggle internally and externally with the effects of dementia. We have 16 rooms offering both private and semi-private accommodations and spacious, open-concept bathrooms. Because we have dedicated this neighborhood to the care and treatment of residents with specific and demanding care needs, we are able to continue to provide care to a larger population of individuals touched by the disease. The quiet and comfortable living rooms feature plenty of space for families to visit and get plenty of one-on-one time. Increased staffing, specialized activities, and BBET are also very important parts of what makes this neighborhood successful.
The GARDENS, located between the Terrace and the Commons, offers a very peaceful and quiet home for our residents who need assistance with their overall care needs. This neighborhood provides serenity and calming activities as well as the spacious rooms necessary for larger medical equipment. Palliative care and hospice teams assist our own team and help us give the quality of care that your loved one deserves.

A great resource for anyone who is dealing with loved ones affected by Alzheimer's or dementia.
