As the population ages, more people are becoming responsible for the care of older relatives in their families, especially parents. Unfortunately, many senior citizens are not able to stay in their homes or live with their relatives due to their health. Most senior citizens with dementia cannot safely live in private homes and should be admitted to medical facilities.
To get the specialized care they need, dementia patients, such as those with Alzheimer’s, need to be admitted to smaller facilities. Assisted living homes in New Jersey offer patients individualized care designed to address their needs. Some residents may be able to care for their own daily needs with help, while others will need assistance with bathing, dressing, and taking care of their living areas.
The staff working in assisted living homes specializing in Alzheimer’s care supervise activities designed to stimulate patients’ minds, keep them active, and provide a safe and secure environment. The staff who care for Alzheimer’s patients are onsite 24 hours a day to look after those living in these special needs homes. They can ensure that everyone is kept safe by securing the facility so they don’t wander away and by providing a safe indoor environment to prevent injuries.
Medical Care Onsite
Along with the services patients need in assisted living homes such as housekeeping, daily meal service, and assistance with daily hygiene needs, medical care is also available onsite. Regular wellness checks are conducted and doctors, podiatrists, and therapists regularly visit to offer care. Some of the therapies offered in these facilities include massage therapy and pet therapy designed to keep patients physically healthy and mentally stimulated.
If your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia and can no longer live in his or her home, being admitted to one of the assisted living homes can provide the care that he or she needs. Contact The Regency Memory Care Club to know more.
