Have you promised your loved one you would never send them to a Nursing Home?
We understand and are here to help.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease today; and that number is estimated to increase by 40% by 2025. Four Star Living in Central Ohio strives to stay ahead of senior health trends by constantly innovating our practices. One area that we have paid special attention to are the needs of seniors suffering Alzheimer’s or dementia which require specialized and compassionate care and we provide the homes for this care.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s affects one’s memory and thinking skills and we treat residents in a kind and compassionate way that presents clues from resident’s previous lifestyle. We also closely monitor and manage behavior changes, so residents can stay involved with daily activities safely and be “present” for each new day.
We strive to ease stressful situations by keeping to daily routines and having similar staff schedules, be alert to “sundowning,” when some dementia care residents become more anxious during nighttime hours and provide safe areas for wandering and exploring.
For those dealing with a condition that affects the memory, such as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, traditional nursing care may simply not be enough. Instead, treatment in a memory care facility may be the best option for preserving one’s memory with special daily activities and assistance from professionally trained caregivers.
We pride ourselves in not only meeting requirements for providing memory care, but exceeding them. Specifically, our staff is up-to-date on all the latest advancements in dementia and Alzheimer’s care and treatment. Furthermore, we provide a safe and supportive physical environment for all of our residents, in addition to offering activity planning based on your loved one’s abilities and limitations.
It’s important to understand the difference between traditional nursing home care and memory care. Specifically, memory care is intended for seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. With memory care, daily programs will be implemented to preserve your loved one’s memory capabilities to the extent possible. In addition to this specialized level of care, traditional nursing home services may also be offered, such as assistance with medications, meal delivery, housekeeping, and the like.
When your loved one is no longer safe at home, we invite them to come make themselves at home with us.
