when people develop dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other memory
issues, it becomes impossible for them to continue living in their
own homes. Family members try to help in many cases, but often find
themselves overwhelmed because they are not trained to care for
people with these issues. When this happens, they need to find places
where their loved ones can live and get the help they need, while
still being comfortable and feeling like they are at home. The
professional staff is fully trained to deal with any and all problems
that arise, and patients will always have access to any medical care
is a special residence for patients who have dementia and Alzheimer’s
disease. Patients will receive 24-hour care, and are supervised at
all times. The living environments are secure, so there is no risk of
patients wandering, which is common in those suffering from
Alzheimer’s disease. The patients receive assistance with everyday
tasks, including bathing, grooming, eating, and taking their
medications. They also receive long-term medical care in a facility
that has been created specifically for those who need specialized
care and treatments.
Many services are offered at a Memory Care
Facility. Patients receive three meals daily, as well as snacks
whenever they want them, either in their rooms or in dining rooms
where they can interact with other patients. Group activities are
also arranged, as well as individual activities for patients.
Housekeeping and laundry services are provided, and if patients need
anything, there are people to run errands for them. All medication is
properly managed, so no patient will ever miss a dose because they
have forgotten about it. There are also a number of therapy programs
for residents, including exercise programs.
All patient suites have private bathroom facilities and window treatments. Patients have televisions, telephones, and even Internet connections in their bedrooms. All rooms have fire and smoke detectors, as well as sprinklers. Utilities are included in the monthly rental fees.
