Today, we’ll explore how our community creates new homes for seniors, as well as why it’s worth considering for you and your loved ones.
What does having a home mean to seniors?
A home goes beyond the physical structure; it encompasses a sense of belonging, security, and comfort. It’s a place where any senior feels safe, understood, and accepted — where they can truly be themselves, surrounded by people who care and belongings that hold sentimental value.
Even more, it’s a space that reflects their identity and where memories are created and cherished. Ultimately, having a home means being able to enjoy a haven from the outside world that brings joy and a deep sense of fulfillment.
Access to a Home Doesn’t Have to Mean Home Ownership at Sage Oak of Denton
Homeownership often requires time and effort that seniors might prefer to spend on other fulfilling activities. The responsibilities of managing property taxes, insurance, and utility bills can become daunting, leading to anxiety and a sense of being burdened by household tasks. The stress of managing these details, coupled with the desire for a simpler, more carefree lifestyle, leaves many seniors looking for a change.
Our assisted living and memory care teams believe that a home should never be reduced to mere functionality. We embrace the notion that a true home, especially for seniors, should be a place where often-overwhelming homeownership concerns are replaced with warmth, connection, and a life well-lived.
Can a person with Alzheimer’s live at home with their family?
When it comes to caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, the question of whether they can continue living at home — and if so, for how long — is a common concern for families and caregivers. Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are progressive conditions that affect memory, cognitive function, and daily living abilities, making evaluation of types of care essential.
While every situation is unique, there are key factors to consider with a medical professional when deciding whether a person with Alzheimer’s can remain at home or if an alternative care setting, such as an Alzheimer’s care home or facility, would be more suitable. They include the following.
- Security: home environments may need to be modified and secured to ensure the senior’s security, including measures such as installing alarms, locks, and monitoring systems. Additionally, caregivers must be trained in Alzheimer’s-specific care techniques and be available round-the-clock to address potential emergencies.
- Social interaction: mental stimulation and engagement in meaningful activities with others are vital for slowing cognitive decline and enhancing quality of life.
- Access to specialized care: Alzheimer’s is a complex condition that often requires expertise to manage best. Professional caregivers at Alzheimer’s communities or facilities undergo extensive training and have experience in managing the unique challenges associated with the condition.
Alzheimer’s Care Home vs. Facility Living
While some individuals with early-stage Alzheimer’s may be able to live at home with proper support and modifications, as it progresses, the need for specialized care often becomes more pronounced. Alzheimer’s care homes and facilities provide supportive environments, ensuring security, promoting social interaction, and delivering specialized care tailored to their cognitive and physical needs.
With our uniquely comforting memory care homes, Sage Oak of Denton creates an oasis where individuals with Alzheimer’s can flourish, finding solace and a sense of belonging while we cherish their memories.
