One of the most common catalysts that cause caregivers to worry about the living conditions of a loved one is when they begin to experience signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. When these mental conditions begin to arise, caregivers typically find solace in knowing that their family members and loved ones can continue to live safely under the care of an assisted living community.
Here at Distinctive Living, we provide comprehensive memory support for our residents who are struggling with symptoms associated with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
The Distinctive Living Memory Support Program
We understand just how important it is for our residents to feel comfortable in our facilities, which is why we have designed our memory support program around a person-centered approach that keeps your loved one feeling as though they belong here. And at the same time, we allow them to maintain their independence and their identity every step of the way.
Our memory care communities are comfortable, inviting, and welcoming for seniors who struggle with memory issues. In addition, we staff these communities with trained professionals on a 24/7 basis to ensure that when your loved one needs assistance, someone is there to answer the call.
When Is It The Right Time To Seek Memory Support?
It’s safe to say that memory deficiencies or the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s can certainly be a cause for concern – especially if you are seeing them unfold in real-time. If you have a loved one who is going through memory issues, we always encourage you to reach out to our team. We’d love to talk with you, to learn more about what you are experiencing, and help you determine all of your options, so that you can make the best decision possible.
What Is It Like To Live At A Distinctive Living Memory Support Community?
For far too many people, they have heard horror stories of memory care facilities, and the idea of putting their loved one into an environment like that is simply too frightening to imagine. At Distinctive Living, we want you to understand just how beautiful, inviting, warm, and welcoming our memory support community is. We’re well aware of the common conceptions, and it is our promise to show you exactly what a memory care environment should look like.
Our residents live full, rich, and happy lives. And every step of the way, they have access to the care, memory support, and specialized attention that they need to live their lives to the fullest in an environment suited to their needs.
How To Make The Decision
At the end of the day, choosing to place your loved one in any type of assisted, independent, or memory support community is never an easy decision to make. When you are removing them from their home, their way of life, and their sense of normalcy, it can certainly be quite the adjustment.
But that does not make it a bad decision. At Distinctive Living, our goal is to ensure that caregivers feel comfortable in their decision to send their loved ones to us. Remember, you are doing this out of love, and we will prove it to you with the level of care that we offer, the experience of living in our communities, and in the professional support that our team provides each and every day.
