At PineCrest, you can rest assured knowing residents enjoy a setting rich with memory support activities and sensory stimulating therapy that provide a soothing environment. Our caring team of qualified nurses and support staff provide assistance with daily activities that help to support each individual's independence. A typical day may include sensory games, roundtable discussions, walks in the secured memory garden, and even baking cookies as if they were in the comfort of their own home. It's life the way it used to be - the way they remember it.
Designed specifically for all stages of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, PineCrest's Memory Support team provides a warm, comforting and secure setting. The care is real, the atmosphere calming, giving the residents the ability to focus on enjoying each day to the fullest.
Selecting a Memory Care Community
When a loved one is diagnosed with a disease like dementia or Alzheimer's it can be devastating and overwhelming. Providing care can be complicated, stressful, and sometimes, you just can't do it alone. Before you select a memory care center to help, consider the needs of your loved one and find a community that meets their unique needs. Some things to consider before selecting a facility include:
- Mobility - Does your loved one need a walker or wheelchair? Is the center designed in a way that encourages movement, or will it hinder your loved one's ability to explore?
- Behavior - Does your loved one show signs of confusion, repetition or aggression? Does he or she wander? Is the center able to support individuals who suffer from mental disorders like depression?
- Assistance - Can your loved one still bath on his/own? Are there other conditions like diabetes that need to be monitored?
At PineCrest, we encourage families to visit our community to learn more about our memory support services and how our center will meet the needs of your loved one. We also offer respite care, which can allow families to take a temporary break from caregiving. With respite care, you can feel confident that your loved one suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia is in a safe environment. Respite care is also a great way to try a memory support center to ensure it's the right fit for your loved one.
