When your loved one begins to become forgetful and suffer memory loss it can be a confusing and frustrating experience. Memory care is specialized care that individuals suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's receive within our assisted living community. They live in a memory care wing that is setup with physical amenities and activities specially designed for memory care. Our memory care staff receive advanced training to deal with the behaviors that can occur through the various stages of dementia.
Memory care residents may receive help with any of the types of activities of daily living (ADLs) that our assisted living residents do with the additional focus on helping them to deal with the realities they are facing with cognitive decline. Just as with our assisted living residents care is provided at an individual level, caring for each person as if they were our own parents.
Each of our residents have a personal needs assessment prior to their move-in to ensure that we know exactly how we can best provide care on an individual basis. This assessment is repeated after 30-days and then every 4-months thereafter or on a major change in condition. This information is used to create a care plan which is used by all our Care Partners to provide care tailored to the personal needs of each resident.
We provide dementia specific training for each of our Care Partners to give them the education and tools they require to redirect and diffuse problems. Many residents with dementia get a sensory overload doing typical daily activities; these residents will benefit in using our new sensory room specifically designed with the latest developments in how to best help those with memory loss.
Absolutely! We have an activity room specifically for our memory care residents and activities will occur on a more individualized basis with smaller group involvement.
