Spotlight On: The Atwater at McLean Memory Care Assisted Living

Located in a separate and safe neighborhood within the McLean Assisted Living Center, The Atwater at McLean provides a compassionate, inspiring, person-centered memory care assisted lifestyle. Our small, personal setting allows residents to live each day in a stimulating environment best suited to their individual needs. It features:

  • 23 private and deluxe suites
  • Balcony off the living room
  • Safe gardens with walking trails
  • Calming multisensory quiet room
  • Special calming spa
  • Specially designed fitness/therapy room

Services & Amenities

  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Scheduled transportation to local physicians or supervised outings
  • Access to McLean’s array of health services
  • A medical team on campus
  • Access to all McLean campus amenities including beauty shop, gift shop, chapel . . . and so much more!

We know familiarity means everything to a person with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Routine comforts and familiar joys reassure and help make each day a good day. We accomplish this familiarity and comfort with our team of Care Partners who are specially educated in the best practices for caring for those with memory care needs. While our Care Partners help residents with the activities of daily living, they also engage residents to participate in the activities . . . like preparing breakfast together or making the bed together … just like at home. The same Care Partner may also take the resident out for a walk, or spend time doing laundry with him or her, to keep the resident engaged and active.

The result: less confusion, more genuine bonding and sharing and a more family-style neighborhood feeling.

Family-Focused Memory Care

At The Atwater, families continue to play a key role in the happiness of their loved ones. At all times, the expectations and emotions of families are considered. Our intimate community and the memory care provided within are designed to allow families to spend more quality time with their loved ones and less time worrying about their care and safety.

At The Atwater, we create days that honor the celebrated moments in our residents’ lives. From their hidden passion for playing music, to their favorite movie, to their favorite family recipes, we bring those life-enriching factors into their daily lives. We engage residents with meaningful, personalized programs and reminisce with photographs, music, gardening or baking to create those warm, cherished feelings.

Choice Dining

Choice, quality, variety and healthy options define the dining program at The Atwater. Our new neighborhood Country Kitchen is designed to promote these ideals and accommodate specific needs.
