Do you have a relative who has been diagnosed with some type of cognitive ailment? Individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia, etc. face numerous challenges and obstacles, as do their families and caregivers – which are frequently one in the same. The best piece of advice that can be offered for situations such as these is the consideration of a Memory Care Community.
If you’re concerned that senior life in Georgia Memory Care may not be a good fit for your loved one, rest assured – not only is it a good fit, it’s the best course of action for both your loved one, and for you and your family.
Here’s a little bit about Georgia’s premier Memory Care Community.
A Memory Care Program
For those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, etc., even if the home care of a relative is possible, it’s not always the best case scenario for everyone involved. Those with cognitive difficulties require a lot of care on a 24/7 basis. Few people have that kind of time to devote to someone, plus go to their job, take care of their children, etc. It’s also very taxing on a family member to be a caregiver. It’s an emotional roller coaster on a good day. What’s more, things are not going to get better. Things are only going to get harder as the disease progresses.
For your loved one to regain as much cognitive function as possible, and hold onto it for as long as possible, specially trained caregivers and a very precise atmosphere are needed. That’s the kind of assistance you get from a Memory Care community.
The award-winning SHINE Memory Care program is uniquely tailored to each individual’s needs. The surroundings are secure, safe, and constantly tended by certified nurse assistants and nurses. Special training has been given to each of these individuals.
