Innovative Alzheimer’s Care Services in Mt. Vernon, NY
We know that you want to be there for your elderly mother or father who suffers from memory loss every minute of every day; but with work, kids, and other things going on, it can be tough. Memory Care at our Meadowview assisted living community supports residents with memory issues like Alzheimer’s and those suffering from wandering issues. In Meadowview, we have 15 apartments in a safe, nurturing, home-like environment with a secure private courtyard.
Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia in adults. It is a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills; eventually, it impedes the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. Unfortunately, there is no way to reverse Alzheimer’s, but early intervention and regular memory care can help to slow the progression of the disease, giving patients precious time with friends and loved ones.
If you notice that an aging loved one has difficulty remembering recently learned information, forgets how to do simple tasks, and withdraws from hobbies or groups, it might be time for an Alzheimer’s screening.
Wartburg offers experienced Alzheimer’s care as part of our assisted living and senior day care services.
