After the Holidays Families Recognize Changing Needs of Aging Parents and Loved Ones
Date:12/31/2009

>Are you noticing changes in their personality? Memory loss, difficulty in performing familiar tasks, poor judgment, misplacing items, disorientation, rapid mood swings, increased apathy or passiveness are all early warning signs of Alzheimer's. A doctor's evaluation can help determine the cause and treatment of these symptoms.

It is important to understand the many choices that make up the new face of senior living in the 21st century. Here is a breakdown defining the differences in the level of care offered to help guide where to begin to look for assistance.

Senior Living

Senior living communities are for active older adults who continue to enjoy private dwellings, control over their own schedules, and freedom to come and go as they please but may wish to have a little assistance. Medical, dietary and other help is available when needed by staff who are on hand 24/7 to offer assistance.

Assisted Living

Assisted living residences offer a special combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs -- both scheduled and unscheduled -- of those who need help with activities of daily living. Assisted living is quickly becoming the fastest growing long-term care option in the U.S. because of its philosophy, which embraces independence, choice and the opportunity for seniors to live enriching lives.

Alzheimer's and Dementia--Memory Care

Memory Care communities are designed for those who have been diagnosed with memory loss due to dementia or Alzheimer's. These specialized communities provide specially trained staffs, licensed nurses, safe and secure facilities, and cognitive and physical therapies to help soothe and relieve those with Alzheimer's and dementia.
