Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can be incredibly challenging and overwhelming for inexperience caregivers. Finding a care facility that specializes in skilled nursing and memory care services will ensure that your loved one is receiving personalized care that supports their needs and enriches their lives. When researching potential facilities, there are a few key factors to keep in mind!

Specially Trained Caregivers

Caregivers with specialized experience in memory care services and caring for those with physical and cognitive ability loss can help improve quality of life with customized treatment plans and care. Our skilled medical staff assist residents in activities of daily living, medical care, memory care, nutrition management and more, tailoring their compassionate care to each individual’s needs.

24-Hour Supervised Care and Secure Living   

Alzheimer’s and Dementia can cause severe confusion and can cause your loved one to be at risk for safety issues. At Shaker Place, our Alzheimer’s care facility has a dedicated 24-hour supervised memory wing, a dedicated dining area, and an enclosed courtyard. Having a secure area will allow your loved one to feel independent, while ensuring that they are safe in a controlled environment.

Memory Care Services

Memory care services in a facility that specializes in Alzheimer’s care should be designed to improve your loved one’s physical and mental abilities, stimulate cognitive function, and promote socialization while maintaining and preserving your loved one’s dignity and identity.

Nutrition and Dining

With Alzheimer’s and Dementia, it’s especially important to monitor nutrition and food and water intake as eating and drinking can be forgotten. Our Shaker Place team includes a full-time registered dietitian who works with residents to develop custom meal plans to fit all nutritional needs, allergies, and preferences. Our dedicated staff works to ensure that your loved is meeting their nutritional goals and has everything needed to maintain their health.
