Memory Care Communities Can Transform the Way Seniors With Dementia Live.
Memory care is a growing segment of the senior housing market for those who need help with an aging parent with dementia. The number of units rose 55% from 2013 to 2018, according to Seniors Housing Business magazine. There are a few simple steps that can be taken to determine if an aging parent needs caregiving services.
A Specialized Senior Care Community to Help With Aging Parents.
Memory care communities are specially designed to accommodate individuals who live with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other types of memory problems. The physical layouts of these communities are designed to provide a safe, structured environment and be easily navigated to reduce the risk of danger from wandering. People with dementia are prone to wander. In fact, 6 in 10 do so, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Tiffany Springs was built from the ground up for seniors in 2019 to include a full continuum of care. From independent and assisted living to memory care, rehabilitation and extended stay, our rental community is one-of-a-kind in the Northland.
Designed to Foster Independence in Memory Care Residents.
Much more than elder care, research suggests that a homey environment is crucial in helping memory care residents feel comfortable and secure. That’s why Tiffany Springs features bright common spaces where residents can settle in or gather with friends and family for visits. The residences are appointed with comfortable, stylish furniture and modern conveniences with the most advanced security measures. No detail is overlooked. Our safe environment was specifically designed to encourage residents to remain as independent for as long as possible.
Providing more services than assisted living, memory care delivers an improved quality of life for those with dementia. In addition to keeping seniors safe and nurturing their mental and physical well-being, memory care units offer residents a range of services that actively work to prevent memory loss. Services in a memory care unit can range from treatments and programs to patient-centered environments designed by individuals who specialize in Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Improving Quality of Life for Those With Memory Loss and Dementia.
Memory care units have proven to have substantial improvements in residents’ overall quality of life. Some of these areas include fewer falls and injuries; fewer emergency room visits; enhanced nutrition and energy levels; increased independence and social interaction; reduced need for medications; and reduction in medication-related side effects.
Amenities and Programs Outshine Any in the Northland Area for Memory Care.
Tiffany Springs defies old notions of senior living in Kansas City and is designed with extraordinary amenities for leisure and luxury. Highlights include a day spa and salon where professional staff is on duty for haircuts, skin care, manicures, pedicures and more. Memory care residents also can retreat to lushly landscaped outdoor spaces and be uplifted by the beauty of nature. A heated pool and Jacuzzi are brimming with health benefits and gentle on the joints. An art studio, chapel, theater room and a dog park are also part of our range of amenities.
Our highly trained memory care staff provides round-the-clock supervision and assistance with daily tasks. Days are busy with set routines along with activities to engage the mind and maintain skills and independence. Dining, transportation inside and outside the community, medication administration, and other routine tasks are assisted with and closely monitored.
In addition to all of the exceptional amenities and services found at Tiffany Springs, our professional care team members are the heart of our community and focused on residents’ emotional well-being.
