Residents of our SML community enjoy three levels of care: assisted living, independent living, and memory support.
multi-sensory room Our multi-sensory room surrounds residents with soothing, highly captivating stimuli that engage their senses of sight, sound, and touch. This environment promotes relaxation, sensory stimulation, and mental development, producing a calming effect in residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Studies show these rooms can reduce the risk of aggressive behavior and self-injury by up to 75 percent.
