The director of The Cottages talks about taking care of a loved one living with Alzheimer’s who are at an advanced stage of the disease.
Frisco, TX, Dec. 12, 2017 – If a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and it is at an advanced stage of the disease, then it may be time to consider residential memory care.
Trent Quinn, founder, president, and CEO of The Cottages says, “Your loved one’s care and needs will increase as Alzheimer’s progresses. All their activities, from having meals to dressing, bathing, and personal care, will become more difficult. During these stages, you should consider the option of residential memory care.”
For those living with Alzheimer’s or other memory disorders, support can be provided through assisted living residences. In these special communities, residents can have their own specialized suite or apartment. These memory care residences should offer individualized services that include highly qualified 24-hour staff, housekeeping, recreational activities, medication supervision and activity programs tailored to those with memory disorders.
Within residential memory care facilities, residences should be personalized to meet each resident’s requirements. All residents need individualized care in an environment that makes it feel like home. These residences need to ensure safety measures are in place, such as secured exits and outdoor spaces for the safety of all residents.
“Taking the time to find a memory care residence that specializes in Alzheimer’s and other memory disorders can provide families with the peace of mind they need to care for their loved one,” says Quinn.
