Assisted Living

Dementia Care In

An Assisted Living

We like to think of Assisted Living as a "Safety Net". Some residents need a lot of assistance and others need less support, a tight safety net as opposed to a loose safety net. Needs are met that are both scheduled and unscheduled in nature.

General services usually include: meals, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, social activities, emergency call system, assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, medication assistance, staff availability 24 hours and much more.

The extent of services provided are dependent upon what the individual needs are. Let's use meal time as an example. Assistance with meals can range from simple reminders that a meal is about to be served to assistance getting in the wheelchair and beeing wheeled to the dining room. Everyone's care needs vary and are determined after a health and wellness evaluation and collaboration with the family and individual.

For individuals with Dementia / Alzheimer's or similar diseases "a memory care" specialty unit or assisted living with a memory care area  may be best. Some assisted livings are entirely dedicated to this specialty and others have certain areas or units. Memory Care areas are pass code secured for entry and exit, this is a safety measure for residents that may wander away from the community. Further, programming and activities can be more communal, at times individualized and geared to the special needs of individuals experiencing cognitive changes.

Independent Living

Adult Day Stay for Seniors

Independent living can mean many different things. This living option could be for the individual who might need or want meals provided, housekeeping, transportation, social activities and access to health and wellness services. Apartment sizes in independent living tend to be larger and often there is assisted living and dementia/alzheimers care on campus.

Adult day stay programs offer the family an opportunity to provide their loved one with social interaction with other seniors in like situations. These programs usually offer half day or full day options filled activities and are sometimes a good segueway into a more permanent living situation. Adult stay is sometimes offered at free standing senior centers or in assisted livings.

In Home Care

Respite Care -

Temporary Stay 

Medical and non-medical assistance can be hired in the home. These services can include assistance with bathing, companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders and such. This option works well if the need is very defined and predictable. Services are billed by the hour  with minimum numbers of hours required per visit.

On occasion a family may desire a short term temporary.  Some reasons may include: recovery from a medical procedure, the caregiver spouse may need a break or keeping your loved one safe until arrangements can be made to move north.  Many communities provide this option.
