Brookdale of Fort Myers has memory care services available for when the time comes. Facility-based care is an excellent option for patients and caregivers when home health care just is not working out. Alzheimer’s and dementia care can be challenging for everyone involved. The more you know what to expect and how to prepare, the more it can make your journey feel less daunting. It’s important to remember you don’t have to go through this alone. Abby Services and community resources such as Brookdale Communities are there to help you throughout your journey.
If your loved one is dealing with Alzheimer’s, you may find yourself taking on a “caregiving” type of role. From monitoring health needs, to keeping them safe, to making sure they maintain a healthy diet. Your role may come with new responsibilities that you’ve never shouldered before. These new roles can be overwhelming or sometimes impossible. The private caregivers available through Abby Services can provide in-home healthcare on an as-needed basis, on a routine schedule, or full time. This can help to be sure your loved one with dementia receive the care and attention they need. Supporting both the patient and their family.
Being a caregiver can be challenging and stressful, however, with the right tools you can maneuver through the huddles with confidence. From learning about what to expect from Alzheimer’s to discovering the best ways to care for yourself in the process, these helpful resources can aid you throughout this journey. We recommend looking into the Alvin A Dubin Alzheimers Resource Center in Fort Myers. They are an excellent resource for input, education, and support. Even with excellent support and compassion sometimes the care provided at home just isn’t enough. That’s why Brookdale Memory care is an excellent option for those requiring more support than someone is able to provide in the home setting.
Their memory care program, the Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and Dementia Program, is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on creating feelings of belonging and purpose for each resident while seeking to preserve their identity and sense of self. They believe that no one should be defined by the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
By using gentle guidance and visual reminders, the Brookdale memory care communities are set up for safe engagement in activities such as gardening, kitchen work, and other projects that provide the opportunity to use meaningful life skills and talents.
Brookdale has cared for individuals living with dementia for more than 30 years. They have the experience to understand the complexity of Alzheimer’s and dementia and know how to support their patients at every stage.
