Memory Care

Quail Corner Life Enrichment Community

Alzheimer's disease is one of the most devastating forms of dementia, affecting 5.3 million Americans. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the country overall, and the number of people affected by Alzheimer's is projected to double in 10 years, and more than triple to 16 million by 2050.

In Nevada, 29,000 people over age 65 were living with Alzheimer's in 2010, a number expected to grow to more than 35,000 by 2020. Humboldt General Hospital is aware of these sobering statistics. We are also aware that many of our community’s residents will not remain untouched by Alzheimer’s, or other progressive impairment.

That’s why Humboldt General Hospital has opened the Quail Corner Life Enrichment Community, a new community within our hospital where residents can receive memory care right here, close to home.

Memory care is a distinct form of long-term skilled nursing that specifically caters to patients with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and other types of progressive impairment. Memory care communities usually provide 24-hour supervised care within a separate wing or floor of a residential facility that is designed to minimize wandering behavior.

For many years, Humboldt General Hospital has had to send all memory care patients out of area to receive care. In 2013, the hospital unveiled a plan to expand the Harmony Manor Skilled Nursing Facility to include an 11- to 13-bed memory care community. This expansion means that most local families will now be able to keep their loved ones close by, with the specialized care they need.
