Choosing an Assisted Living community for your family member is one of the most important decisions you will make as a caregiver. Choosing the right place becomes even more important when your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of memory impairment. Understanding the differences between facilities that specialize in Alzheimer’s and dementia care from other facilities that don’t offer this specialization can assist you in making the best decision for your family.
Caring For the Whole Person, Not Just Treating the Disease
Autumn Leaves Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Assisted Living Communities are leaders in providing specialized memory care in a home-like environment and incorporate care practices that are specifically designed for individuals living with memory impairment. Each community has an on-site licensed nursing staff with specialized expertise in dementia care and Life Enrichment Coordinators that are dedicated to providing enriching dementia-specific group and individual activity programs. Individual dietary management and care plans are developed for each resident and focus on enhancing quality of life.
At Autumn Leaves, our family welcomes and cares for yours. We offer guidance for caregivers, support groups, 24 hour access to visit your loved one, and private dining rooms for intimate chef-prepared family meals. Keeping you informed and educated is something we take great pride in. As a matter of fact, we call one of our founders, Jane Anderson, RN, our “Chief Educational Officer!”
Our memory care residences are just that - homes - not locked floors as you might find in general assisted living facilities. From our beautifully landscaped yards to our cozy and inviting front porch, a feeling of "welcome" is apparent. Our residences are laid out to accommodate and even encourage purposeful wandering. You never know what special activity or social interaction awaits around the corner. Our staff, highly trained in the care of adults with memory impairment, know that they are guests in your loved one’s home - not the other way around.
When you are faced with the agonizing decision of finding an appropriate living environment for a loved one with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory impairment, we know how frustrating and emotional that can be. How do we know? We specialize in memory care – that’s all we do. Our founders’ vision is now being managed by the second generation of a family faced with just such frustration. Rather than succumbing to hopelessness, they set out to raise the standards of care as only a family can.
