As memory loss progresses, being home alone can create potentially unsafe situations, such as forgetting to turn off the oven, getting disoriented during a walk outdoors or missing scheduled medication times.
If you’re questioning your loved one’s safety at home, it may be time to consider a memory care assisted living community. This program provides specialized, compassionate care for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Respite care services offer around-the-clock assistance during a short-term stay, which typically lasts more than 24 hours, but less than two weeks.
Caregivers often turn to respite care if they’re unable, for a short time, to provide the 24-hour supervision their loved one requires. Respite stays are also sometimes used as trial runs before making the decision to move to a care center full-time.
Respite care usually includes all the same services available to long-term residents at that location, such as 24-hour care, meals, social activities and housekeeping.
Adult day service programs offer daytime respite services that enable primary caregivers to work, run errands or have a break from their caregiving duties.
Participants can socialize and receive health services in a stimulating and supportive environment.
These short-term programs are designed to help people maintain independence, strength and function.
Adult day services provide a cost-effective alternative to full-time nursing home care.
