Alzheimers Care Facility in San Diego
If you’re over the age of 55 and listen to the news, you know the incidence of Alzheimer’s is on the rise. Thankfully, so is the quality of research into the disease.
But that doesn’t help those of us who have a loved one with dementia now. I do, as my mom was diagnosed in 2016.
And if you do, you may be wondering about an Alzheimers Care Facility.
The good news is there are many qualified care communities for people with all types of dementia.
The questions then are: are you ready to place your loved one in a care facility (community or home are terms I prefer). And if so, how do you know where to look. We can help.
If your loved one suffers from dementia, you know that daily tasks become more and more challenging.
In time your loved one with dementia will need help performing basic functions like getting dressed, eating, and bathing. And eventually hospice or other end of life care will be required.
Caring for someone with dementia can be a full-time job. And it not only requires expertise and skill, but lots of time and patience.
San Diego Dementia Care Facility
What are the options for a Dementia or Alzheimers Care Facility In San Diego?
If and when living in the family home becomes too difficult, a dementia or Alzheimers care facility in San Diego may be the answer.
Also known as “memory care”, these are specialized communities that can keep your loved one safe, assist with daily personal needs, and provide life enhancing programs.
A San Diego memory care facility can be more expensive than an assisted living community. But it will be less expensive and much more appropriate than a nursing home (also called skilled nursing). We’re happy to explain the difference.
