About Us

Let’s Get to Know Each Other

Our History

Executive Director Lisa Baron founded Memory Care Home Solutions (MCHS) in 2002 in response to her own family’s struggle to care for a loved one with dementia. As her family became part of a caregiving team, the need for this organization became apparent.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Memory Care Home Solutions (MCHS) exists to extend and improve quality time at home for families supporting and caring for loved ones with memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Our goals are to reduce family care partner stress, provide tools that increase confidence to handle difficult situations, improve quality time at home, and help prepare for the future.

Our Values

Accessibility
We provide in-home training on convenient, affordable, easy-to-implement solutions to make home and daily life safer, less stressful and more meaningful. We work diligently to provide our services to all people who can benefit, and we welcome the participation of our community in the work of Memory Care Home Solutions.

Empowerment
We equip families with caregiving skills and strategies, knowledge of the dementia disease process, and helpful resources and tools to manage difficult behaviors and symptoms. It is our goal to help families feel more prepared and confident for their important contributions as care partners.

Compassion
We deliver individualized, family-centered, caring service, which respects, honors, and validates the contributions of care partners, with a focus on the underserved.

Excellence
We utilize evidence-based methods, quality measures, and outcomes analysis to provide the highest level of service, professionalism, and results to our clients and partners. We are deeply committed to responsible stewardship of the organization’s assets and resources.

Collaboration
We actively listen and partner with families, with our inter-disciplinary staff, with the community of healthcare and aging providers, and with donors, funding sources, volunteers, and academic experts in the fields of dementia and aging. We customize opportunities for giving and serving within the organization.

Our Vision

MCHS provides our services and interventions to underserved and low-income families at little or no charge. During June 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018, 73% of our clients with dementia had a household income of less than $40,000. We specifically reach out to underserved, disadvantaged, and minority communities in collaboration with the St. Louis Area Agency on Aging and through the Saint Louis University Geriatric Clinic and its service of uninsured and underinsured patients.
