Medications may be part of a resident’s overall care plan. The importance and value of having professional caregivers safely administer medications with someone with memory-related problems is essential. Our assisted living staff is responsible for organizing and administering a resident’s medications as prescribed by their doctor.
For those with memory-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, everyday tasks can become stress-inducing and difficult. Helping residents with such activities in a supportive way is a hallmark of care at AltaVita Memory Care Centre. Our highly trained assisted living staff helps residents with activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing and meal assistance. We also offer hair and nail services, podiatry care, massage therapy and other services to minimize stress and maintain dignity.
The specialized and highly trained staff at AltaVita Memory Care Centre are continually refreshing their knowledge of the latest Alzheimer’s treatments, dementia-related therapies and other physical and occupational therapies for those with memory-related illnesses. Our staff understands the importance on empowering individuals through the appropriate therapy. With the right care, individuals learn how to become more engaged and better able to function when performing everyday tasks. Those with memory impairment can learn how to better organize using labels and grouping in order to minimize the stress of daily tasks.
AltaVita Memory Care Centre was designed by experts in Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory-related illnesses to provide an assisted living environment that is both welcoming and completely secure. The community is secure 24 hours a day, every day. Round-the-clock staff and electronic surveillance together monitor entries and exits. Despite the total security of the community, we designed our community to create a sense of independence and comfort. Doors in and out of the patios downplay the secured aspect of daily living. Four garden patios and a spacious courtyard at the heart of the community create ample space for residents and guests to enjoy the outdoors. And, family members are welcome to take their loved one to the nearby park and shopping areas at any time.
