Alzheimer’s / Memory Care Journey, What To Expect

DIAGNOSIS

After a diagnosis, each family may be in a different place. The biggest issue for most families is safety, especially if their loved one is unpredictable. Families also have different levels of comfort and ability when it comes to providing care. We believe in truth telling and involving the family in honest conversations about what an Alzheimer’s diagnosis might mean. We provide ongoing support for all through our Family Forum Learning Sessions.

LONG TERM CARE

We can meet the needs of people with Alzheimer’s wherever they are on their journey. Depending on the wishes and capabilities of the family, it may be possible to care for their loved one at home with help (see In Home Care). If a structured memory care environment is prescribed by a physician, we can help.

The ability to age in place is one of our core beliefs, and palliative and hospice care are also provided when needed.

Finding Support

After a resident is settled in, we hold routine meetings to review how they’re doing with the current level of care. Our system is simple and transparent with clearly defined levels of service and we can provide everything from meals and meal delivery, assistance with bathing and dressing, altered diets, hair salon services and other daily support as needed.
