Regent Court and the Best Friends™ Approach to Memory Care
At the heart of the Best Friends™ Approach is the understanding that people want to feel known and supported – as by a friend – in their day-to-day lives. By building these relationships we create a meaningful bond between seniors and their caregivers and allow aging adults to live with dignity and purpose, despite their physical or cognitive disabilities.
What is the Best Friends™ Approach?
What people experiencing memory loss need most of all is someone dedicated to helping them feel safe, secure, and valued—at all stages of the disease. That is why Encore Communities has adopted the Best Friends™ Approach and earned the designation Best Friends Environment.
This person-centered care model is grounded in the understanding that relationships are supremely important in dementia care and should reflect the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, humor. The approach promotes the dignity and individual rights of people with memory loss through knowing the history and preferences of each person, communicating skillfully, and providing a supportive environment and meaningful engagement.
Friends know each other’s history and personality. They do things together, communicate, laugh often, build self-esteem, and share stories. When the world seems strange and uncertain, we need a friend more than ever. These essential elements of friendship are incorporated into our care practices, giving our staff the knowledge and skills to provide individualized, meaningful attention within a trust-filled relationship.
How it works
Your loved one will be in the caring hands of staff who are trained in the Best Friends approach by an onsite Certified Master Trainer. Our people receive comprehensive instruction and guidance in how to provide superior dementia care by approaching activities, communication, mealtimes, personal care, and challenging situations with dignity, compassion, empathy, and respect. Staff are familiar with each person’s life story and help sustain their identities, past experiences, and preferences. We are committed to helping those with memory loss live their best lives while in our care.
Where it all started
The Best Friends™ Approach to dementia and Alzheimer’s care was introduced in 1997, the approach has grown to become an internationally recognized model for senior care. It was developed by Virginia Bell, MSW, and David Troxel, MPH, both masters in the field of senior caregiving for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

At our Corvallis assisted living community, we believe trusting relationships are a basic human need and the strongest foundation for caring for one another. Our decisions are guided by goodness, loyalty, faith, and fun. This is our True North. We create communities where elders, families, and employees are growing, teaching, and formulating new memories. Together we are discovering, experimenting, and contributing. We trust one another to do the right thing in the spirit of honor and love.
Benefits of a Corvallis community-based memory care setting include:
- secured entry to minimize risk of wandering.
- regular human interaction and programs to engage the memory-challenged individual in daily life, minimizing withdrawal.
- nutrition and exercise and social stimulation and support.
- elder well-being monitoring and communication with family and health care providers.
- freedom from caring for a loved one’s daily needs, so families can focus on spending quality and joyful times with the individual.
