We believe that a disease doesn’t define you, your story does – and our memory care program exists to celebrate your story. illuminateTM is a program dedicated to creating a welcoming community where residents feel like family by providing:
Our combination of small group, larger group, and specialty programming enhances participation while meeting the changing needs of those we serve. Bringing our philosophy to life are uniquely designed spaces for engagement, relaxation, and experiencing special moments. We pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional memory care experience for our residents and our guests by providing:
Through the use of visual cues including thoughtfully placed kitchenware, food art, music, and motif, we create an experience for our residents that “wows” every time.
Understanding the unique needs of those with memory impairment, our chefs celebrate how food stimulates the senses, a key to encouraging residents to eat and enjoy meals. This is why you will smell freshly brewed coffee, hear the cracking of eggs, and experience the aromatics of homemade bread baking in our communities.
Additionally, our memory care communities use specific china, flatware, and table decor. Each piece is used with purpose, placed with care, and arranged with our residents in mind. We strive to create a dining venue that invokes memories, stimulates appetite, and invites conversation.
Every detail is about expertly serving our residents and their unique needs while providing a culinary experience.

“My plan, of course, was to keep Nancy at home! Realizing this may not be best for both of us, I did my research. Having been a healthcare administrator for a large hospital, I had the knowledge of what to look for in a memory care community, and found confidence in Market Street.
First was standard of care – following protocol to meet Nancy’s needs. Next was quality of care – the care Nancy receives here exceeds my expectations. I also wanted quality of life for Nancy. This team keeps Nancy physically and mentally active. The sparkle in her eyes and her smile tells me she is comfortable and well cared for at Market Street.”
