Finding the Best Memory Care
At MorningStar Senior Living of Sparks, our Reflections Neighborhood is an outstanding example of a community devoted to the care for those afflicted with Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related disease. So what do memory care communities like MorningStar’s Reflections Neighborhood offer families searching for solutions for a loved one with Alzheimer’s?
To start with, the best memory care communities are designed to provide residents with a safe and secure space to freely move about in their surroundings. For example in our community, we have a secure courtyard for the exclusive use of our memory care residents.
Another thing memory care provides is to not only meet the daily personal care needs of a resident but also to offer specially trained staff to provide a therapeutic approach to care. At MorningStar of Sparks, our resident-directed approach uses music, dance, art, aromatherapy, and animals as a way to heal and provide comfort for our residents.
In fact A Place for Mom website notes that memory care programs report “a higher quality of life in a number of different areas, including reduced medication and medication side effects; fewer falls, injuries, and hospital visits; increased nutrition and wellness; and greater independence and social interaction.” They add that seventy-five percent of residents experience an “improvement or maintenance of mental functioning.”
Finally memory care provides the families of those suffering from Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia peace of mind knowing that their loved one is being cared for in the best possible way. Please call or schedule a tour to discover more about the finest memory care the Reno–Sparks area has to offer.
