The Meadows Memory Care in Oakland County, MI

Included in the Canterbury On The Lake campus is The Meadows, a premier memory care home. It provides a safe, secure, program-rich environment for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-based conditions.

Our mission at The Meadows is to treat each of our memory care residents with compassion, dignity, and respect while celebrating their abilities. Rather than focusing on what they have lost to disease, we create success stories based on what they can do.


Our Philosophy

The Meadows operates on a person-based approach through the renowned memory care program called Heartfelt Connections. Our skilled staff works with residents using reminiscence tools to capture the memories and details of their lives. By learning our residents’ stories we can personalize enrichment activities for them that promote their individual senses of well-being.

Our comprehensive approach to physical and mental health maximizes opportunities for our memory care residents to feel good about themselves, experience pride in what they do, and have an improved quality of life.
