Symptoms of dementia may start out seeming pretty harmless or like simple forgetfulness that we have all experienced at some point in our lives. Whether that is forgetting to pay bills, trouble keeping track of a purse or wallet, or remembering appointments. It is important to pay attention to these and monitor if they become more severe and hindering.
The brain is incredibly complex and the triggering of a decline in cognitive function is something that trained professionals are most properly equipped to handle. This is especially true when it gets to the point where the affected person does not have access to 24/7 assistance. If your loved one is at this stage, they can greatly benefit from coming to live at Palm Cottages. We have a full-service memory care unit in our assisted living facility that will specialize in many forms of dementia care and treatment.
If your loved one is going through difficult times with dementia, you are likely feeling tremendous stress and a heavy burden. We encourage you to give us a call and ask us about our assisted living facility and dementia care services. They are extremely important when it comes to the well-being of your loved one. Here at Palm Cottages, we have a saying “happy aging is our agenda”. And it couldn’t be more true. We do all we can to enhance the quality of life for our residents, no matter what kind of dementia trouble they are going through.
It can be a scary thing for a dementia patient to leave their home and come to an assisted living center. But ours is different! We have comfortable, quaint, unique cottage-style housing that provides a greater sense of comfort. For our dementia residents, there is a courtyard that connects the cottages so they can get outside in a safe environment to socialize and enjoy the fresh air when possible. We have our residents engage in the community by providing plenty of activities for them to enjoy. We also have specially designed programs to help treat their condition. We truly can make a difference in their lives, reducing stress and anxiety in your life. Your loved one will be in great hands.
