How Memory Care Facilities Improve Seniors’ Lives
For senior citizens living with memory disorders, day-to-day life can be difficult. As the disorder progresses, it becomes difficult to keep up with matters like finances, housework and medication management, and the family may not have the time or resources to handle these things themselves. If your loved one is suffering from a memory-related disorder, you may want to consider a facility that offers Alzheimer’s care. Here are three ways these facilities, like Mitchell Hollingsworth, may be able to help.
Help with Financial Management Those with memory-related disorders may have a difficult time controlling their finances. They might forget to pay bills or spend money on things they normally would not. When it is time for seniors to move into an Alzheimer’s facility, find a memory care residence that offers all-inclusive pricing to help take the stress out of managing bills.
Encourage Socialization Living alone can be difficult for many elderly individuals, especially for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Isolation can lead to depression and other health concerns. At a facility for those living with dementia, your loved one can be surrounded by compassionate caregivers and individuals. Most Alzheimer’s facilities provide planned group activities for residents to participate in, specifically designed for memory disorders.
24/7 Nursing Care & Staffing With the planned activities, there is also medication administration, feeding, bathing, and total care available.
