When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, it can be a very overwhelming and scary time. There are so many decisions about what kind of care they will need and where they will receive that care i.e. at home or a private Alzheimer’s care facility. One option you may be considering is private Alzheimer’s care. Here is everything you need to know about this type of care.
What is Private Alzheimer’s Care?
When looking for care options, it’s natural to want to do everything in your power to ensure your loved one receives the best possible care. One option you may be considering is a specialized private Alzheimer’s care facility. A private care facility will provide specialised care for those with Alzheimer’s. Livewell offers private care for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Benefits of Private Alzheimer’s Care
There are several benefits to private Alzheimer’s care. One of the most significant benefits of a specialized Alzheimer’s care facility is that your loved one will have access to around-the-clock care. This can give you peace of mind knowing that there will always be someone there to help if your loved one needs it. This is especially important as the disease progresses and your loved one begins to need more assistance with activities of daily living.
Another benefit of a private Alzheimer’s care facility is that we provide a supportive environment specifically designed for those with the disease. This can include secure outdoor spaces, specially trained staff, and dementia-friendly design features. This can help your loved one feel more comfortable and less anxious, which can, in turn, help them maintain their current level of functioning for longer.
In addition to around-the-clock care and a supportive environment, a specialized Alzheimer’s care facility, such as Livewell, provides access to various specialized programs and services. These include memory care activities and social activities specifically designed for those with dementia. Participating in these activities can help improve your loved one’s quality of life and give them opportunities to socialize and engage with others facing similar challenges.
Making the Decision
Ultimately, the decision about whether or not to choose private Alzheimer’s care should be made by considering all of the factors involved, the needs of the person with Alzheimer’s, the resources available, and the preferences of both the person with Alzheimer’s and their family members.
