Alzheimer’s Facilities

As one ages the body and mind go through a process and sometimes a person can have a certain amount of memory loss and confusion. The family is asked to take on the care of their aging elders and provide personal care and help they are not capable of doing. Symptoms can present as early as the late forties or early fifties. The patient’s disease progresses over time, requiring more and more care and supervision. It is very difficult for family and friends watching a brother, parent, sister or a friend progress to a point where they are incapable of recognizing anyone. There will come a time when a family will have to look for assistance with the care.

Alzheimer’s facilities are sometimes affiliated with assisted living facilities, with a separate, secured wing for the residents. Residents are evaluated as to the type of care that is needed now and what might be needed in the future. Alzheimer’s units provide room and board, housekeeping, linen cleaning, and provide assistance with hygiene, dressing, 3 meals a day and sometimes escorting to and from the dining areas. Some will have locked units and monitoring in the rooms and halls to prevent wandering. Some of these facilities will have specially trained personnel to handle behaviors associated with dementia such as disorientation, aggressiveness or Sundowner’s syndrome.
