Why Memory Care is Important:
As memory related diseases, such as Alzheimers, progress, seniors require levels of care that can expand accordingly. Historically, memory care needs were lumped in to a broader pool of general care. But as more is learned about memory issues, and as the population with such concerns grows, senior services, from medical, and day care, to long term housing, have begun providing more customized care that actually works to help maintain or improve independence whenever possible.
LaCour House, proudly offers a residential living environment focused on the unique needs of memory impaired individuals. We are staffed with trained and certified care givers including on-site nurses, who oversee and attend to daily functioning at a personal level. We treat each resident with patience, love and dignity.
Choosing LaCour House:
At the onset of Alzheimers or dementia, families may opt to keep their loved one home; often, this is possible in the early stages of dementia. As the level of care and assistance a person requires increases, however, this becomes too unrealistic and even dangerous for the senior with memory issues.
We understand transitioning from home or a more independent senior housing setting to a memory care facility can be difficult. But you’re not alone. We meet with you to discuss how you or your loved one will integrate and eventually thrive in our setting.
Our team encourages family and friends to participate in the process, and to visit as often as possible. We have programs in place that give loved ones the opportunity to learn about memory loss, and how to cope with the evolution that inevitably occur in the family dynamic.
