What is Alzheimers ?
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive state neurologic disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy), as well as the death of brain cells, as the Alzheimer’s disease advances and proper care is required. When it comes to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause. The term Dementia is defined as a progressive decline in thinking, behavioural, and social skills that significantly impairs a person’s ability to function independently.
Memory loss and other important mental functions are destroyed as a result of Alzheimer’s disease. The connections between brain cells, as well as the cells themselves, degenerate and die, eventually destroying memory and other critical mental functions during Alzheimer’s and require additional care.
The most noticeable symptoms of Alzheimer’s are confusion and memory loss. Although there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s, medication, care and management strategies may be able to temporarily alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

Different Levels of Memory Care

The staff in our community center focus around on providing care facility and in-person reminders to complete daily tasks such as brushing teeth when providing supportive care. These brief, friendly interactions are devoid of supervision or hands-on assistance. This minimal level of care is intended to ensure that regular, healthy habits are maintained rather than ignored.
This level of long term care is more attentive and supervising. It consists of in-person reminders, such as those included in our supportive care, as well as observation by a staff member in our communities to ensure daily tasks are completed with proper care. When requested or when a care activity appears to be difficult, some respectful, one-on-one assistance is also provided which to us is a walk in the park.
This highest level of care places daily tasks in the hands of a trained, encouraging staff member. They will provide any assistance required to maintain healthy habits from head to toe. This care is highly responsive and sensitive to the importance of independence, with assistance provided when a resident wishes to perform tasks on their own.
