A Path Taken With Friends
and Family

Developed in partnership with David Troxel, MPH, co-creator of the life-affirming and acclaimed Best Friends™ Approach to Dementia Care, Spring River Christian Village's Pathway Memory Support® program responds to the experience of dementia by embracing contemporary best-practices along with enhanced staff training, creative approaches to care, and a focus on activity and engagement. A person living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia faces a progressive decline in memory and cognition that can lead to moments of sadness, frustration, and worry. This path can be a lonely one, but at Spring River the path is taken with friends and family.
