Senior housing providers admit that the growing need for memory care services is rapidly increasing with passing time. Although some things change over time, there are some things that stay the same in these Alzheimer’s assisted living facilities. But The Cottages’ providers and staff go out of their way to be there for their residents in every way possible.
One way that assisted living has changed is due to Covid-19. Assisted living facilities do everything they can to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. Facilities take the necessary precautions by following the CDC guidelines and the guidelines set by the state, testing new residents, and keeping the facility clean.
The Cottages Help with Daily Living
The Cottages are certified assisted living residences for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory disorders. While a lot of things have changed due to Covid-19, one thing that has stayed the same for The Cottages is the level of care that is provided, and the services provided. Examples of some of the services they provide consist of the following:
- Highly qualified 24-hour nursing and staffing
- Regular physician visits in the facility
- Certified medication aides as well as licensed nurses
- Individualized memory care for every stage of Alzheimer’s
- Specific programs of activities designed for memory impairment
- Hygiene assistance (bathing/grooming)
- Registered dietician provides menu evaluation
Building Trust and Security
In the last ten years, one of the biggest changes seen in memory care is a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders, their progression, and the length of time one spends living with this groups of diseases. The Cottages have more intimate living settings in their memory care assisted living facilities. For example, in the North and South Cottages at Chandler Creek, the fewer residents in each Cottage allow for the staff and residents to form deeper relationships, based on trust.
