Specialized Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Advisors
Dealing with a parent or spouse with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming and stressful. It’s comforting to have an Alzheimer’s care advisor on your side to help guide you through the process of selecting a dementia care community that can safely provide both residential and medical services. Senior Living Options offers support and expertise in sorting through the choices.
Many assisted living communities offer special services for the memory impaired. Dementia/ Alzheimer’s care is usually contained in a separate and secure part of a community where residents with memory loss are safe to move about freely. Often, the dementia care section also includes an enclosed outdoor living area. In addition, it is typical for a dementia care area to be designed for one-level living with dedicated common living areas and dining rooms, as well as with activities designed especially to support and engage memory care residents.
At Senior Living Options, features we also look for in the support of dementia and Alzheimer care residents include:
- Interior space that is well lit and designed to have visual contrast between the floors, walls, and doorways, as well as areas for touch and sound sensory.
- Customized supportive care plans and medication management plans based on the specific needs of the resident.
- Staff specially trained and educated on memory care who can provide the highest levels of care, dignity, and independence to residents as possible.
