Memory Care for Seniors
According to the Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures of 2020, an annual report released by the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans today live with this debilitating disease. The report estimates that by 2050, that number will rise to 14 million Americans.
The report also paints a grim picture of the disease when it comes to care and prognosis. Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. One in three American seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, and the news is not any brighter when discussing care for Alzheimer sufferers. The study shows that between 2000 and 2018 the number of deaths caused by Alzheimer’s have ballooned a whopping 146%, creating a major healthcare crisis. That is why at Sholom, we do everything we can to help those who are suffering with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Assisted Living Facilities
There is no magic bullet when it comes to caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or any type of dementia. The main thing is to work towards maintaining present autonomy, stimulate the patient to help improve memory and their physical condition, and finally keep a watch to avoid further deterioration.
That is one of the main reasons people opt for Alzheimer’s assisted living. Families might be tempted to jump in and assume care for their loved ones, but the truth is that all the good intentions in the world cannot replace professional monitoring and care. People with this disease might need round the clock surveillance by professionals that can distinguish a temporary problem from a major health issue in the making.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Alzheimer’s and dementia care are both particularly difficult for the uninitiated. It is especially trying for family members and loved ones that suffer doubly since they not only need to care for their loved ones but must also watch them deteriorate. The need to coordinate with all the care professionals involved in caring for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients is another problem. Between a physical therapist, a cognitive therapist, doctors, and neurologists, a full roster of professionals need to be seen regularly.
That is why our Alzheimer’s care facilities and dementia care facilities exist. They provide the right environment to not only ensure the security of your loved one, but also provide the necessary stimulation to slow down the disease and provide the best quality of life possible.
All Hope is Not Lost
It is important to realize that Alzheimer’s and dementia, though difficult to treat, can be slowed down. Patients can recuperate a great deal of their previous autonomy, if stimulated in the right way. Professional therapists can help with memory exercises. Physical and mental exercises maintain body and mind in its optimal condition, and activities can help maintain a varied life experience and stimulate patients to exercise their social interaction skills. This improves quality of life, as well as arresting the progression of dementia and Alzheimer’s, which have been proven to accelerate when coupled with social isolation and lack of activity.

My dad, Henry, has been a resident at Phillips since mid-August. I wanted to write you a quick note to comment on the beautiful care he is receiving. I’m so pleased with his accommodations, the way he looks every time I see him, and the way the staff involve him in activities. They are johnny-on-the-spot if things are amiss, which I greatly appreciate. Both the social worker and the nurse commented when I ran into them yesterday that he seems to have settled in well now, and to be content. We couldn’t ask for more. We were blessed the Phillips had an opening when he needed to be moved from his assisted living facility, and we continue to be blessed by the way he is looked after. Please thank the staff on my behalf.
