Chandler, Arizona (December 10, 2019) – Clarendale of Chandler has hired Dana Olimb to manage and lead the new senior living community’s memory care neighborhoods for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The all-new community, which also offers independent living and assisted living, is located at the corner of Riggs Road and Gilbert Road in Chandler.


“We’re so delighted to have Dana join our Clarendale team,” says Executive Director Rena Phillips. “With more than 10 years of experience in memory care, she brings the expertise and skills needed to effectively train, mentor and inspire our staff, as well as the passion to support our residents and their families with strength and compassion.”


“I am excited to join Clarendale because we offer a program that is truly unique,” says Olimb. “The residential setting is designed to make those who live here feel at home, but perhaps more important, our heartfelt approach to care truly offers individuals with memory loss a sense of safety, security and quality of life that rewards their everyday successes.”


With the peace of mind and security of 24-hour nursing on-site and Heartfelt CONNECTIONS –
A Memory Care Program
®, Clarendale is attracting attention from families of individuals with all forms of dementia. The community’s memory care program recognizes that abilities lost from a memory disorder are less important than the abilities that remain.


According to Olimb, “We celebrate everything our residents do—creating success stories one small victory at a time. It’s reassuring for both residents and their families. Rather than being caregivers, loved ones can return to being a daughter, son or spouse again.”


Clarendale of Chandler’s two memory care neighborhoods include the option of comfortable private and companion suites. Residents enjoy three delicious meals a day, accommodating special diets, served in their own neighborhood dining room or in their room. The community offers trained care 24 hours a day, including daily activity programming and local transportation, assistance with daily living, medication administration, weekly housekeeping services and more.


“The focus—whether in our independent living and assisted living neighborhoods or in memory care—is on total health and wellness. In fact, our Health & Wellness Navigation™ program helps ensure that residents can navigate any medical challenges that may lie ahead,” says Phillips. “It’s a comfort to both residents and their families.”


Seniors and families interested in Clarendale of Chandler’s memory care program may schedule a visit to see the community. It is located at 5900 S. Gilbert Road in Chandler.
