Everyone ages differently and will have a specific set of physical and emotional needs. For many, mobility issues make it difficult to do things like pick up groceries and attend medical appointments, or they may have trouble with cooking and cleaning or basic tasks like bathing and taking medications. Even if a senior is physically healthy, memory issues like dementia or Alzheimer’s can create another set of challenges. According to Harvard Health Publishing, patients with Alzheimer’s may need help with more and more tasks as the disease progresses, including dressing, grooming, toileting, and meals.
Whether your aging loved one needs a little bit of help to live with dignity or they’re struggling with everyday tasks due to memory loss, assisted living may be the answer. Take a look below at some of the main reasons people turn to our assisted living community and memory care community for the support they need to keep their loved ones safe.
A Stable Environment
Assisted living provides a stable environment where your loved one can relax in familiar surroundings with a soothing routine. Routines are essential when it comes to Alzheimer’s care and dementia care in general, and Maple Ridge provides the memory care services needed to keep seniors with these conditions at peace. Furthermore, assisted living facilities are designed to allow seniors to be as mobile as possible while remaining safe, with single-floor living and wide doorways. Features like handrails and accessible bathrooms help seniors avoid dangerous falls while allowing them to maintain as much independence as possible.
