Dementia is one of the most common conditions seen in the elderly. It is also one of the biggest reasons for the elderly going into care homes. Assisted living facilities provide specific care for residents with dementia. Allegria Village has an expert team offering memory care in Troy.
What Are Allegria Village’s Values?
We see the resident as an individual. An individual with their own specific needs – needs that we are here to fulfil. We work hard to provide the highest standards of care and have five principles in place that enable us to achieve these standards:
Treat each resident with dignity and respect.
Promote independence and individuality for each resident.
Allow for individual choices for care and lifestyle.
Protect resident rights to privacy.
Involve family members and friends in care decisions.
Specialized Dementia Care Services
Dementia is a common problem for the elderly and the condition eventually results in them needing to be cared for by someone else. At first, this is usually a family member, but as the condition progresses, the relative cannot cope and the professionals need to be called in.
Our licensed care team provides patient-orientated care, assistance with daily activities, medication monitoring and administration, as well as weekly housekeeping and more.
Signs And Symptoms That A Loved One Needs Memory Care
There are different types of dementia and dementia can affect every person in a different way. Here are common early symptoms of the condition overall:
Trouble staying focused
Finding it difficult to carry out daily tasks (they may become very confused when doing a simple job like shopping)
Failing to find the right word or to follow a conversation
Not knowing the time or place they are in
These symptoms start out mild and then get worse with time.
At first, it is not dementia but ‘mild cognitive impairment’ but this progresses and later becomes dementia. It is important to act if you notice these symptoms in a loved one, so they can get the treatment they need.
