Transitioning a Loved One to a Memory Care Home
For many people, their mental images of assisted living facilities blurry at best, and the thought of transitioning a loved one into an assisted living facility can be difficult to contemplate. Fortunately, assisted living has come a long way in the past few decades, and memory care has dramatically altered the assisted living landscape. Today’s best memory care homes offer patient-centered treatment in close-knit communities nestled in inviting surroundings. They combine the best treatment available with the atmosphere of home, and the opportunities for a rich, active, and vibrant life.
The old days of whitewashed, institutional buildings are long gone. Today’s independent living facilities offer resort-style living in luxurious apartments or cozy residential homes, with all the amenities of a first-class cruise ship, and the best health care options available on site. At SeniorCare Homes, all our memory care homes are located in quiet residential neighborhoods, without signs or big parking lots. We endeavored to make coming to a memory care home in Kansas City as much like coming home as possible, and most of our residents quickly come to think of their SeniorCare Homes as just that… home.
The transition to assisted living can be a trying one for some people, and we’ve found that residents transition much more quickly and successfully to smaller communities rather than larger facilities. That’s just one of the reasons why we offer smaller homes that care for no more than 5-8 residents at a time, giving each individual plenty of space and plenty of opportunity to exert their own personality and pursue their own interests. When it comes time to transition to a new living environment, many people have difficulty letting go of the house that they’ve come to consider home, especially if they’ve lived there for many years, raised families, and celebrated milestones. That’s why at our SeniorCare Homes, all the rooms are decorated just like home, with keepsakes and photos that our residents bring with them. We pride ourselves on offering the best in memory care homes, and our homes are more than just a room or even an apartment, they truly are home for our residents.
Transitioning to a smaller memory care home in Kansas City can be done in a matter of hours or days, rather than months, and we encourage family members and loved ones to be involved in every step of the transition. Ultimately, the most successful transitions in living situation happen naturally and organically, they develop at their own pace, supported on all sides by friends and family. What’s more, with only 5-8 residents and a smaller staff to get to know, our SeniorCare Homes quickly get to feel like extended families themselves.
