Our Founder’s Story

Eleanor Alvarez, Ganzhorn Suites founderIf someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you are keenly aware of the daily challenges caregivers face as the disease progresses. I, too, know what it’s like to love someone whose memory has faded – my grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease. She battled the disease for years, and while she is no longer with us, her memory is vivid in my heart and mind.

I remember everything about her journey, including the frustration of not being able to find her the lifestyle and care she deserved – especially in the later stages of her illness.

The journey I shared with my grandmother inspired me to create a beautiful, state-of-the-art community offering those with memory loss a meaningful, dignified and fulfilling lifestyle.

And that is how The Ganzhorn Suites began.

Named for my grandmother, The Ganzhorn Suites, quite simply, sets a new standard for memory care. Our specialized evidence-based memory care programming is combined with luxurious, purpose-built residential living and truly compassionate, personalized and respectful care.

The programs and services we offer are designed to nurture the mind, body and spirit, so that residents can live fully – no matter where they may be in their own personal journeys.

At The Ganzhorn Suites, we are dedicated to providing the highest standard in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our mission is to enhance the lives of those we serve – our residents and their families. Most importantly, we respect each resident and are committed to exceeding expectations to make sure we take care of our residents the way they deserve.
