Alzheimer's Disease is a form of dementia, and can result in memory, thinking, and behavioral problems. Our skilled and supportive nurses assist residents with all aspects of living. We keep the environment safe and comfortable so residents feel at home. Extra support is provided to help residents and families feel more at ease.
Unfortunately, there are times in which you can no longer care for a person with Alzheimer’s disease at home. The person may need around-the-clock care. Or, he or she may be incontinent, aggressive, or wander a lot. You may not be able to meet all of his or her needs at home anymore. When that happens, you may want to look for a long-term care facility for the person.
You may feel guilty or upset about this decision, but moving the person to a facility may be the best thing to do. It will give you greater peace of mind knowing that the person is safe and getting good care.
Choosing the right place is a big decision. It’s hard to know where to start. However, we feel that our facility has the ability to handle mostly all needs your family member may have. Please consider us as a caregiver if you are looking for a long term care facility for treatment of your loved one.
