When Dementia Becomes a Concern

At Serenity Gardens, we believe that every person deserves to live an independent life at home as long as possible. However, as we have seen all too often, we also know that cognitive decline can make that unsafe. We strive to create a safe, home-like environment that offers our residents the best of both worlds. If you are concerned about your loved one’s dementia, here are some of the signs that it may be time to consider a move to a memory care assisted living facility.

  • Times and places are confusing
  • Daily tasks and chores are challenging and often ignored
  • Communication becomes difficult
  • Social isolation
  • Lapse in judgment creates unsafe environments
  • Lack of personal hygiene and more than occasional incontinence
  • Decrease in nutritional status and ability to safely prepare meals

The care and activities at Serenity Gardens can help slow the symptoms of dementia and fosters safe independence while providing supervision and assistance as needed.

When dementia becomes a concern, due to safety, it helps to have people who are trained and experienced in memory care to help. Memory care services can help prevent falls, encourage nutrition, and help decrease the adverse behavioral issues that are common in those who suffer from dementia or other memory deficits. It is important to remember that dementia can be confusing and scary for those experiencing it, so any “outbursts” should not be taken personally. With quality dementia care services, you should be able to see positive changes in your loved one that include:

    Decreased agitation and anger
    Increased mobility and strength
    Improved independence
    Decreased falls
    More smiles
    Purposeful movements
    Decreased fidgeting

Memory care is focused on supporting those who suffer from cognitive deficits while challenging and engaging them to keep the mind stimulated without causing confusion or overwhelming them. By offering appropriate activities and attention, your loved one can find the peace and serenity they deserve. For more information, contact us.

Tips For Visiting Your Loved One

At Serenity Gardens in Friendswood, we encourage you to visit your loved one as often as possible. While we understand how difficult this can be when your loved one does not remember who you are, we offer support and guidance as you continue a relationship with them despite their illness. Here are some quick tips to make your visits at our dementia care home more memorable:

  • Still love them. Even if you are very sad by your loved one not remembering you, remember it is not their fault. You can still love them despite their illness, and, in fact, they need you to. Remain calm in the outbursts, positive, and supportive.
  • Take breaks. If you are feeling overwhelmed and emotional during a visit with your loved one, it’s okay to take breaks. Simply excuse yourself from the room until you have composed yourself. We understand the emotions can run high, so it’s important to let those feelings be when they come.
  • Learn a new language. You may visit your loved one who is not saying much that day, or who has stopped verbalizing many thoughts. Holding their hand can be all that they need. You can read them a book while at our dementia care home, or you can read silently in their room. Although your loved one may not be able to express their love for you anymore, you can rest assured that they feel it in your presence.
