The Cottages Provide Support for Loved Ones
Frisco, Texas, Feb. 04, 2019 – Loved ones dealing with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can struggle relying on others while trying to maintain their own independence. Caregivers often fall into the habit of doing things for their loved ones living with memory disorders rather than with them. Maximizing independence of these individuals leads to higher levels of confidence and a better quality of life. One memory care facility in Frisco, Texas is working to change and improve caregiving for memory-challenged adults.
The staff at The Cottages are specially trained to work specifically with those experiencing memory loss and dementia. Using a revolutionary training approach, The Cottages employ a TULIP approach: Time, Understanding, Life Quality, Increased Awareness, Pills on Time and Support. This approach centers on protecting the dignity and respect of the residents they care for.
“Our memory care assisted living facility has a remarkable reputation that is built on solid management, strong support, individualized and personalized care for every resident.” says Trent Quinn, founder, president and CEO of The Cottages. “This incredible standing is by no means newly found or recently created. It is truly a significant part of our organization. Dignity and concern are evident in our everyday operations.”
Their dementia and Alzheimer’s assisted living communities have unique routines with activities designed specifically for people living with a memory disorder. With a variety of events occurring daily, residents are encouraged, but not required, to join in to as many of the activities as they’d like. Bringing in outside experts on multiple subjects further diversifies their curriculum.
It’s not just the staff or the activity programming either. Using research from the Mayo Clinic, all of The Cottages’ communities have unique floor plans designed to give residents smaller, home-like environments. These smaller spaces allow staff and residents to form stronger relationships, leading to better care overall.
By paying attention at every level to the unique needs of those living with memory disorders, The Cottages has created communities where residents are able to live as comfortably and independently as possible while in residence.
