Hugo Suite Living, located in Hugo, Minn., announced on Jan. 29 that it is converting all of its units to memory care-only, due to the “growing amount of seniors [that] are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.”
“We are very happy with the results we have seen at Hugo Suite Living since we have converted to all memory care,” said Tawnee Pietrzak, executive director of Hugo Suite Living, in a statement. “We are one of the lucky providers to already have a building small enough in size and designed properly to care for individuals suffering from a memory impairment.”
Many of the existing Suite Living communities have already been designed with memory care in mind, with design functions and staff training that help providers deliver quality care. The company operates five assisted living and memory care communities located in Hugo, Blaine, North Branch, Champlin, and Mapelwood, Minn.
