Individualized Dementia Care from Experts Who Care
Do you have a family member or loved one that has recently been diagnosed with dementia? Dementia is a catch-all term for declining mental ability beyond what is normal for a person’s age and afflicts more than 5 million people in the United States. When caring for someone with dementia, it can be overwhelming and scary for you and them. Getting the proper care and attention, like that provided in a dementia care facility such as Clarendon, can greatly improve their quality of life. If you live in California, check out our assisted living homes in the Lake Balboa and Woodland Hills neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
Just writing a few words of thanks for all the love and care Clarendon gave my Dad over the last two years. Although my Dad recently passed due to issues with dementia, I will always be grateful for their efforts. They have a great team, and were always very accessible with any of our concerns or worries. They truly treated my Dad like family, and I want to publicly thank them all for coming to my Dads celebration of life!
What is dementia care?
When working closely with individuals in different stages of dementia, our dementia care specialists understand how to deal with bouts of depression, anger or aggression, confusion and poor judgment that typically comes from this condition. Being trained in positive ways to manage behavior stemming from dementia, our staff cares for your loved one just as we would care for our own families. With a dementia care plan that includes daily charting of health, creating consistent schedules and having stable relationships with their loved ones, you can be sure a safe loving environment is created for each one of Clarendon’s residents.
How are Alzheimer’s care facilities different?
With more advanced levels of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s, it is essential for your loved one to have an Alzheimer’s caregiver to help and monitor them on a daily basis. Understanding how overwhelming this disease can be, is why as a memory care facility, we have a high staff ratio to alleviate the burden. You and your loved one will be at ease knowing there is a one-on-one care option along with night staffing to catch any anomalies to keep your family member safe and healthy. Additionally with a family support group led by an expert on dementia, the whole health of the family is taken into consideration at our residential care facility for the elderly.
