What to Look for in a Senior Memory Care Facility

Our senior memory care facility in Kansas City, Clover Care Home provides your loved one with a safe, structured, clean, and professional environment that you can trust. A senior memory care facility search can be exhausting, and most families may not know exactly what to look for. There are some important qualities you should be looking for when making this decision.

We know it’s difficult when you must decide to place your loved one into someone else’s care. Clover Care Home was built specifically to provide a therapeutic environment needed for the secure care of seniors. There are some things you should include in your search when choosing the right residence. You might try and think about what services and kind of support your loved one requires, both now, and in the future. Talk to their doctor and other caregivers to learn about the extent of your loved one’s memory loss and the condition of their overall health. This will help you determine what their specific needs are, and what kind of senior memory care facility best fits those needs. Some important qualities to look for in your search include: 

  • A Professional Staff – first and foremost, a highly skilled and professionally trained staff directly correlates to the quality of care your loved one will receive.
  • Regularly Visiting and On-Call Doctors – your health and wellbeing is of the utmost importance and having on-call doctors and those that regularly visit for routine checkups should set a facility apart from the competition.
  • Individual Care Plans – it is important that everyone be treated as an individual, and having specified care plans for each person is important to making sure their overall health is being taken care of.
  • Activity Program – when seniors stay active, their quality of life improves drastically as they continue to stay active.
  • Music Therapy – music has power, especially for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. The beauty of music therapy is that it can spark compelling outcomes even in the very late stages of the disease.
  • Healthy Meals – eating healthily fuels the body to recover from stress and other medical ailments. While focusing our home cooking on healthy eating, we can keep our residents mentally and physically strong.
  • Fall Prevention Program – making sure your loved one is safe always gives you the ability to be at ease knowing your loved one is well taken care of. A fall prevention program and video monitoring for resident safety is part of a standard of care.
Finding a senior memory care facility that is licensed and accredited is especially important. Government guidelines for licensing base their criteria on care coordination, staff knowledge and competency, activity programming based on abilities, behavior management, a safe and supportive physical environment, and types of care provided. Keep this in mind as well when deciding.
