If you or your loved one is facing a struggle with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, Via Christi’s Memory Care Residence and support programs at the Catholic Care Center in Wichita, KS, can make all the difference. These services are specially designed to support those who:

Safe and secure memory care facilities
Memory Care is a four-household center, each household having 10 private rooms, as well as a living and dining room, bathing facilities, laundry room and weather-emergency safe room. Each household is closely attached to a central programming and service area. We also offer memory care services at Via Christi Village in Pittsburg, KS.
Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment with the familiar comforts of home and the supportive care of professionally trained staff.
Nationally recognized dementia program in Wichita
The Memory Care Residence at the Catholic Care Center in Wichita has attained certification in the Alzheimer's Foundation of America Excellence in Care Dementia Program of Distinction, only the fifth such designation granted in the United States and the only one in Kansas. In 2011, we successfully met the criteria for memory care recertification —continuing our commitment to excellence in this important specialty.
Wichita community leader in alzheimer's
The first Wednesday of each month, the Catholic Care Center hosts a support group for the Alzheimer's Association. In addition to the Memory Care Residence and the Special Care Unit within the nursing center, the Catholic Care Center offers an Adult Day program for people who need a half or full day program while the well spouse is at work.
The value of one day
"We chose Catholic Care Center for our adult day care provider for a number of reasons," says Donald M. Douglas, PhD. "The facilities are first-rate. The place is furnished like a home, not at all institutional, and provides a home-like atmosphere. We found the staff to be cheerful, upbeat and wholly professional. We have been using it one day each week...and the value of that one day per week to me, as the sole caregiver, is incalculable."
