Dementia Assisted Living – Not All Facilities Offer Memory Care

When dementia assisted living is needed, what are the options in Kansas City? Is there a facility near you that offers dementia care?

A sad fact of life in today’s society is that as senior adults age, they often develop memory loss. Diagnoses of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are common. The onset of Alzheimer’s dementia sometimes makes it almost impossible to manage the activities of daily living at home, even with live-in care. A person’s memory loss and the inability to continue living at home are severely impacted.

As dementia progresses it becomes vital that senior adults receive adequate care. As they, or their adult children, begin considering all the options for dementia assisted living, they may discover that all too often – while there are many facilities that offer assisted living – not all of them offer the specific type of dementia care required.

Finding the right care facility in the Kansas City area that offers appropriate housing and specialized care that older adults with dementia require can be a challenge. It can be very difficult to determine if an assisted living facility is the right one for yourself or a loved one.

When the goal is to locate a dementia assisted living facility in the Kansas City area, Clover Care Home has a few suggestions that may help with your decision. You can start by questioning friends and acquaintances who have experience – either themselves or with a family member. You may also find many listings online. Some questions you may have are:

What is an assisted living facility?

Usually, an assisted living facility is a home that is adequate for aging adults who still retain mental acuity and mobility. Being more independent, they require very little personal care, such as help with managing medications, or help with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, cooking, for example). They may still able to drive a vehicle and travel without problems.

What makes a dementia care assisted living facility different?

A dementia assisted living facility enables seniors with mild to severe memory loss, due to Alzheimer’s or progressive dementia, to remain active and engaged as much as possible while receiving the specific type of care they need. The ideal facility offers a dignified, comfortable and supervised environment. Safety precautions are in place to ensure the prevention of injuries. Daily activities include help with dressing, bathing, medicating and socialization, and more, and where families are encouraged to get involved.
