About our program
Please note: The farm property can be uneven and is not appropriate for persons with limited mobility or fall risk unless they are accompanied by caregivers that can help them navigate the grounds (for example, nursing homes who visit the Memory Farm for day trips bring residents in wheelchairs, but they also bring staff to help navigate the wheelchairs across the grounds). If you are unsure of the suitability of our property for your loved one, we will help you evaluate the potential risks and benefits so that you can make an informed decision about the appropriateness of your loved one for our farm-based approach to day care versus traditional adult day care.
The property was built in the 1840s and is the primary residence of Johanna and John Jameson. They renovated and modernized the main house in a way that they could share the comfort of their home with people struggling with cognitive impairment. The outside property is in the process of being renovated and will be improved more and more each year. Indeed, the clients will help with a number of these outside projects as a way to stay physically, cognitively and socially active. Their collaboration with us in these activities makes them partners in the mission of the Memory Farm. This approach creates purpose in life and promotes self-efficacy, dignity, physical and mental health and overall quality of life. Besides, it’s just darn fun!
