The Benefits of a Team of Caretakers
At SeniorCare Homes, we strive to set ourselves apart by creating a sense of community and belonging for our residents living with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and dementia. One of the most important differentiators is creating a home-like atmosphere for our residents. Examples of this include hosting group activities and spontaneous opportunities that make the most of current events. These can include our regular monthly gatherings at the Memory Homes where the residents come together for planned activities or spur-of-the-moment fun such as a trip out to get ice cream or an evening cheering the Royals on to victory.
Enjoying another Wave of Forever October
Much like the rest of Kansas City, the SeniorCare Home residents are riding the wave of Royals fever. In recognition, we’ve enjoyed a number of mini celebrations including dinners with favorite foods and baseball-themed gatherings featuring ballpark-inspired hot dogs, peanuts and popcorn along with other fun activities. On these occasions, the SeniorCare residents wear their blue with pride as they gather together in the Memory Homes to cheer on the Royals, who just captured another American League division 7-2 win in mid-October against the Houston Astros. In order to share these events with others, our activities coordinator regularly shares photos and emails of these events with family members. Guests are also invited to join our monthly gatherings and activities.

At SeniorCare Homes, we believe regular social interaction is one of the best ways to decrease the signs of depression that often accompany a diagnosis of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or dementia. Because of the complexity of these diagnoses, we take many steps to create a safe and comfortable environment that promotes each resident’s independence and creates a sense of family. If a loved one is no longer able to live in their own home because of complications from Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s disease, it’s important to have teammates who are ready and able to assist in any way possible. SeniorCare Homes, a provider of neighborhood living for the memory impaired, offers a personalized approach to memory care. The family-like setting of our Memory Homes offers a comfortable living place for up to eight people. The downsized approach allows an enhanced level of natural interaction in a home setting along with the easy proximity to make friends. To learn more, contact SeniorCare Homes.
