A different approach to dementia care will be opening its doors soon in Sumner.

Memory Haven Sumner is a purpose built home for people with dementia care needs, according to their website.

Memory Haven operates like a home rather than a care facility. It will house small cottages with 12 suites per cottage.

The main gathering area of the cottages will be the kitchen where meals will be prepared, cooked and baked for residents.

Suites will include private bathrooms and will open into a great room

The residents will have access to secure courtyards that include a picnic shelter, walking paths and garden boxes.

At Memory Haven there will be person directed activities and entertainment, advanced technology and security, memory care activities, a beauty and barber shop, a therapeutic spa and much more.

Their mission is to provide a compassionate, respectful relationship for people with dementia, their families and our care partners in our cottage homes

Memory Haven is located at 5107 Parker Road East in Sumner. You can contact them at 253-750-0552 or visit their website. You may also email John Merz, the administrator, at johnm@memoryhavensumner.com.
