The Faith Community memory care unit at Mother of Perpetual Help on the Shrewsbury Campus of Cardinal Ritter Senior Services is the best ever! The regular program of caring for and helping the residents with daily routines like showers and personal care, along with the range of daily activities, is second to none. Kudos to the staff who continue to smile with love and patience.

Memory Care Programs

Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care®

MOPH embraces Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care (PAC) method. Our trained PAC team members have collaborated with researchers to truly comprehend the training programs, services, and science based upon Teepa Snow’s concept that focuses on brain change and care partnering.

The community focuses on PAC principles with an emphasis on staff members in our memory care neighborhoods. MOPH – which currently has a PAC certified coach, trainers, and an independent consultant on staff – is working on total PAC community certification.

More Information


Our memory care communities also implement the It’s Never Too Late (iN2L) technology. This state-of-the-art system combines touch screen computers with intuitive, picture-based software that is both extensive (5,000 different content applications) and continuously updated.

The iN2L program offers content-driven engagement that connects older adults with the world around them. This technology creates meaningful experiences – including memory and music programs plus YouTube videos – so residents can interact with each other, their caregivers, and family members.
