Memory care resource white paper

Memory Care Resource | Navigating Options for Your Loved One

|

We know it can be a struggle caring for a loved one with dementia.

Looking for the qualities that best meet the needs of your loved one can be challenging. In an effort to make the search for memory care a little easier, we created this short white paper resource to help anyone who is looking further into moving their loved one to a memory care community.

In this white paper we discuss the beginning steps of communicating with family about your loved one’s care diagnosis, legal affairs, types of care and a list of resources that may be helpful during your search for memory care.

Top five takeaways:

  1. Waiting too long to seek help may reduce the quality of life for both the caregiver and the person they are caring for.
  2. Not all senior living communities offer memory care. Be sure to clarify this need during your search.
  3. Before you commit to a method of payment, explore all of your possible payment options.
  4. Prepare a course of action before discussing memory care with your loved one.
  5. A memory care community can help provide peace of mind for your entire family.

At Merrill Gardens, Garden House is our memory care specific community created around the unique needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Residents enjoy an inviting environment with a team who are always warm and happy to help. We strive for a family feel and positive social engagement for all our residents.

Everyone has a story to tell, and we love hearing them all. Our community teams concentrate on honoring each resident from the day they move in. Through our specialized programming, we seek to know the meaningful details of your loved one’s life—where they’ve been, what they’ve done—and what activities might be especially meaningful to them. Families are invited to participate in daily activities.

You’ll find only intimate, comfortable rooms in our Garden House. Our grounds are beautifully landscaped, with secured outdoor courtyards and a specially trained team on site 24/7.
