Finding and Affording an Assisted Living Center
for Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Care Patients and Families
Making the decision to move to an assisted living, memory care facility, or group home can be an emotional and difficult experience, especially when your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. This decision was made easy for me, as Momma decided she was ready to move after touring during an open house. She looked at me and said, “Carol, I want to live here. You figure out how to pay for it.” That is exactly what I did, and Momma absolutely loves her new home.
Studies have shown that individuals with dementia thrive when living in group settings. The more social stimulation available, the better they feel and respond to their environment. Often times families will move their aging parent to an assisted living and realize their parent has improved dramatically. The family then feels the parent no longer needs the help offered at the facility, and they take mom or dad home. After the return home, the loved one goes “down hill” rapidly. Why did this occur? They declined so quickly because they lost the social interaction that was spurring their improvement.

Kind Words From A Client:
“Thank you again for all your help and support and advice this weekend. Everyone thought the room looked great, and your ideas were responsible for that. I appreciate your hanging the pictures and your mom’s ironing of the dust ruffle. I am so thankful that I saw the article advertising that you were speaking locally. My life has been blessed with many caring friends, and I count you among them. May God continue to bless you in all that you do for others.” (Charlotte Kilpatrick)
