At Sagebrook Senior Living, our goal is to provide our residents with a community they enjoy, and the support they need to live a full life. We’re proud to offer round-the-clock care and maintenance-free living in a warm, inviting environment.
Our Staff members working in an assisted home are trained to help seniors, but to avoid becoming too intrusive. Residents that live inside these homes are usually capable of managing their own lives, perhaps even walking around the house without assistance. These homes also allow for more privacy and space than the traditional nursing home.
What is Assisted Living Facility?
The Department of Public Health in California licenses all assisted living facilities, also commonly known and licensed as Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly. Most of these assisted living facilities provide 24-hour guardian care and attention. Some facilities may have a certified RN nurse that can offer skilled nursing when and if needed.
Outside a medical facility, an assisted living facility offers the maximal level of care offered for elder adults. The staff assists the residents with meals, getting dressed, bathing, getting in and out of bed, as well as assistance with administering medication. The facilities often have a weekly calendar of planned activities and social gatherings.
Memory care is a specialized type of service specifically for individuals facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other types of memory impairment.
Residents receive assistance with medication management and activities of daily living including bathing and grooming, all in a secure environment with 24-hour care from our specially trained caregivers.
Who Can Benefit From Memory Care Programs?
Seniors with early or middle-stage dementia may find assisted living to be a good option. However, as the condition progresses, it is best to consider memory care. The physical layout and security make memory care centers pleasant and safe settings easy to navigate to people who quickly get confused and agitated.
Specialized care and cognitive boosting therapies offered in these facilities can help people with memory loss keep their cognitive abilities for as long as possible. Older adults with memory loss can ideally benefit from 24-hour supervision and care, secured entrances and exits, and enhance security measures to avoid wandering.
Who Can Benefit From Assisted Living?
Active seniors who need help with daily living activities like dressing, bathing, using the bathroom, and nutritious meals may find assisted living beneficial. Older adults who want a maintenance-free and convenient lifestyle with opportunities to stay connected and engaged with a community of people like them may also find assisted living facilities enjoyable.
What is the Difference between Memory Care and Assisted Living Facilities?
These types of senior living offer most of the same services, including meals, housing, assistance with daily living tasks such as using the toilet, bathing, dressing, etc. However, memory care programs focus on caring for older adults with memory loss, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and similar conditions. This means memory care centers are well-equipped and staffed to help seniors with memory issues maintain a sense of self, boost their cognitive ability and get quality of life for as long as possible.
