When memory care assisted living becomes necessary for your loved one, the next step will be finding the right care community for them. While you may feel overwhelmed by the decision, the last thing you should do is try to rush the process. If you find yourself needing help to care for your loved one who has Alzheimer’s or another memory loss issue, here are a few factors you should consider to help you choose the right memory care community.
What kind of memory care is provided? The memory care community you choose for your loved one should provide holistic, compassionate care from a staff trained to work with people who have Alzheimer’s and other dementias. At Maple Ridge, we offer AspireCare®, which allows our RNs, LPNs, and nurses’ aides to provide consistent care that integrates research-based best practices. We also provide on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapies as well as culinary services from dieticians.
While you plan on leaving the day-to-day care of your loved one in our capable hands, you’ll want to spend time with them regularly, so you should choose a community that’s easy to visit.
Anyone who has had to turn to a memory care community for their loved one will tell you that the services and peace of mind are worth it. However, the cost is a consideration for most families and will factor into your decision when searching for the right memory care community. Maple Ridge provides transparent pricing so that you understand how much you will pay for our award-winning services. We invite you to look at our Pricing page to learn more.
An assisted living community is more than a place to receive top-notch services that bolster residents’ physical well-being. At Maple Ridge, we offer plenty of programs to care for our residents’ emotional lives.
We understand how jarring it can be to move to a new place after spending so many years in one’s home. That’s why we create spaces where our residents can feel at home, whether they have daily visits from family or enjoy surrounding themselves with other residents at our many social activities.
