Unique Senior Memory Care Services

Private Home Care

Understandably so, many senior citizens prefer to remain in the comfort of their home. In addition to this preference, residing in the familiar home setting can be therapeutic. For these individuals, private home care, whether provided by a family member or a hired full-time caregiver, may be the most desired option. However, it is crucial to understand that as dementia progresses, 24-hour assistance may become necessary, and private home care may no longer be a feasible option.

Senior Day Care

If your loved doesn’t require 24-hour assistance or a family caregiver simply needs a break from the daily act of caregiving, adult day care is a suitable choice. Within this type of senior care, also known as short-term or part-time dementia care, visiting patients can socialize and take part in various recreational activities during day visits to our assisted living facility. These activities include therapeutic coloring, music therapy sessions, gardening, and more, each lead by qualified and friendly individuals. At the end of the day, your loved one can go back home to their familiar setting.

Adult Assisted Living

When a memory care senior is no longer able to safely reside in their home, adult assisted living is available to meet their unique needs. Poet’s Walk memory care facilities provide a warm and stimulating environment that feels like home while ensuring residents have the 24/7 medical care and attention that they require. In addition to the unique Signature Touches of our communities, seniors can engage in the numerous events and social activities that we hold on a daily basis, helping to alleviate feelings of depression and anxiety.

It is not always easy to assess which care option for dementia patients is best suited to your loved one. To discover the intricacies of these services, we invite you to contact us.
