Now that the holiday season is over and your life has returned to its normal routine, you and your family might be discussing the next option for your loved one with Alzheimer’s. Whether it is a parent, grandparent or other family member, you might be wondering if now is the right time to move them into an Alzheimer’s assisted living.
Many people are nervous about changing the care of their loved one from their own hands to someone else. If you have been the main caretaker for your family member over the past years, giving up that responsibility can be challenging. Trusting the care and well being of your mom or dad to someone that is not a family member can cause some angst and second-guessing. Well all of those worries can be put to the side if you decide to join the AutumnGrove Cottage family. At AutumnGrove memory care is ALL we do! From our building design to our highly trained staff, we devote our entire being to caring for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. With only 16 residents per cottage, our staff has the ability to create personalized care plans for each amazing resident to suit their specific needs. Our cottages look and feel like a home, including an open kitchen where home cooked meals are made daily. Many of our residents enjoy lending a hand in the kitchen and it helps give them a sense of being independent. Each AutumnGrove cottage has a gated backyard with a continuous walking path through the garden where residents can spend afternoons soaking in the sun. Some of the cottages even have small vegetable gardens that are tended to by the residents and caregivers and the fresh veggies are used for meals.
AutumnGrove strives to create a comfortable and safe environment for your loved one while allowing them to be as independent as possible. We are here to help you as well. Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can be challenging and sometimes you do not have enough resources at home. Don’t feel that you are letting your loved one down if you decide to move them to AutumnGrove. We are your new home away from home. We want to provide a support system for both you and your loved one. Let us help. Call us today 800-311-4880 or visit our website www.autumngrove.com.
