Memory Care Learning Center

The Region’s Resource

In addition to virtual resources and support currently offered, the physical Memory Care Learning Center is the premier Alzheimer’s and dementia education resource center in the greater Kalamazoo area. Free programs and support groups are offered for individuals caring for someone at home or in a senior care community.

Participants learn practices and skills through sessions offered both virtually and in person.

Training and support for subsequent stages of the diseases help caregivers better engage someone with the disease while emphasizing dignity and compassion for both sides of the relationship.

As an initiative of the Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, our center is located at:
300 Golden Drive
Kalamazoo, MI 49001

Learning about
Alzheimer’s and
Dementia

The impact of Alzheimer’s — the only leading cause of death in the United States that cannot be prevented or cured — cannot be understated. Its effects are felt by both the individual and family and friends who provide care, often with no compensation and little formal training.

Who’s In Our
Network

As an extension of Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, the Memory Care Learning Center draws upon Heritage’s long-standing and important role in the caring for seniors since 1945 as well as the strong memory care provisions found within the two specialized communities of Amber Way and Amber Place. 

Outside of Heritage Community, the Memory Care Learning Center has numerous partnerships with area resources including medical/research-based organizations and advocacy organizations dedicated to finding a cure for and treating Alzheimer’s and related disease.
