Family members caring for a loved one with memory disorders can be under a great deal of stress. Ensuring your loved one has the very best care can feel impossible at times and considering moving your loved one to an assisted living home may only increase that stress or even cause feelings of guilt.
Often, when people think of assisted living facilities, they imagine a nursing home that’s dimly lit with small rooms and limited activities for residents. The Cottages memory care facility in Frisco, Texas (just north of Dallas) is entirely different.
Our mission is to provide an environment that feels as close to home as possible. Here are some of the key services and benefits The Cottages offers our residents:
Personalized Assistance for your Loved One
We will get to know your loved one on a personal level. Should something ever happen to your loved one and they are in a position to need assistance with even simple daily tasks, there will always be someone to aid them.
Having someone to help 24/7 is not feasible if your loved oneis home alone. Family members may come and go throughout the day to offer assistance with designated tasks, but they’re not always available at all hours of the day.
Personalized Activities They Will Enjoy
Despite your loved one’s memory loss, there are still activities and hobbies they can enjoy. The Cottages assisted living facilities offer customized activities for our residents, with our staff on hand to assist in safety. These include:
- and many others
If your loved one was at home, it may be difficult for them to participate in some of these activities due to lack of supervision or anyone to guide them and provide assistance as needed. It is our mission to ensure our residents enjoy their time here and truly live life to the full.
A Facility of Freedom and Protection
The memory care facility in the Dallas area aims to provide a balance of freedom and protection to ensure your loved one does not feel like they’re locked or trapped in an institution but kept safe in a home away from home. Allowing your loved one freedom to move around and do what they enjoy is our goal, but we also ensure their safety.
Starting the process to move your loved one to our family is easy. It is our hope that our workers and residents treat each other as family while are staff provides all aspects of daily living and manage care from various providers for our residents so that the families do not have to worry about their loved ones.
