We know that when it comes to your parent, you want things to stay the same for just a little longer. And maybe you’re not quite sure that they’ll be happy in senior living. We know because we felt the same way. That’s why we founded Sundara – to create a senior living community that felt good enough for our own parents.
Looking for senior care can be a daunting task. There are so many types of care available that it’s sometimes difficult to know which one is right for your loved one, but it helps to keep in mind that each type of senior care is designed to meet specific needs. The first step to filtering out all the noise and making the right choice is to determine what your loved one’s needs are.
If a parent or someone else in your life has been recently diagnosed with dementia, you might be wondering if there are communities where people with dementia can live. There are numerous senior apartments for dementia in Round Rock, Texas, as well as other long-term care options.
Sundara Memory Care is specifically designed to lessen confusion and agitation and help our residents maintain routines. We provide plentiful opportunities for socialization and recreation, which reduces anxiety, promotes familiarity, and supports a sense of comfort. Relationships in this environment are more cohesive and in-depth compared to much larger communities, and science backs this up.
Relationships between parents and their children aren’t always picture-perfect, and as people grow older they can change for the better or for the worse. Caregiving an aging parent isn’t an easy feat, but it can be much more stressful if the parent has dementia.
Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how long the adjustment period will last. It can take days, weeks, or months. Much of the outcome depends upon the type and severity of dementia, if your loved one is prepared for the move, the environment (the facility), and the level of support that is given (by yourself, family, and staff) during and after the move.
Making the decision to move your loved one to memory care can be a very difficult choice but knowing how to identify the signs that 24-hour care is necessary can help you evaluate and make that critical determination.
The type of care provided to your loved one with memory impairment is principal to the cost of their care. Learn more about the price difference between Assisted Living and Memory Care and why.
