Memory care | Westerwood

Westerwood memory care is a close-knit community that’s big on experience and lifestyle.

As one of the first memory care communities to embrace an intimate, homelike model instead of a large, institutional setting, we have deep experience helping those with Alzheimer’s or dementia live well with dignity and a sense of personal independence.

For more than 40 years, we have provided high-quality memory care for the greater Westerville area, achieving a stellar reputation among medical professionals and resident families. As our knowledge and experience of dementia have grown throughout the decades, so has our compassion and commitment to serve.

Like home—with support.

While your loved one should feel at home, it’s essential you feel equally comfortable visiting. Besides 14 private and semi-private suites for residents, our memory care neighborhood offers a beautiful, open environment that promotes natural interactions between residents and guests. Light-filled rooms with large windows help regulate circadian rhythms to support sleep and mood. Our enclosed courtyard allows residents to enjoy sun-filled days out in nature safely.

“Westerwood memory care offers one of the best staff-to-resident ratios in Ohio.”
-Valerie McConnell, director of nursing at Westerwood

Opening Minds Through Art (OMA)

Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) is a Scripps Gerontology Center intergeneration art making program for memory care residents.

The program provides people living with dementia an opportunity to express their creativity. In OMA, people with dementia are paired on a weekly basis with college students from Otterbein University who are trained to support the elders creative expression. The pairs meet in a small group setting to create art.

OMA’s mission is to “Build bridges across age and cognitive barriers through art.” It is evidence-based, has received a number of best practice awards, and has been listed as a Quality Improvement Project by the Ohio Department of Aging since 2015 and funded by the Ohio Department of Medicaid since 2016.
