If you are looking into memory care for your senior loved one, you might be overwhelmed by all the options. Naturally, you must have many questions you’d like each community to answer. What if my loved one needs help in the middle of the night, will a staff member be there? How will I know if my loved one is safe in their apartment? Are there enough activities available to keep my loved one happy? These are just a few of the major questions to address, and the right place will be able to put your mind at ease. That being said, we want to tell you what makes our memory program in Morris County stand apart from the rest.
Benefits of our Memory Care Program in Whippany, NJ
Specially trained caregivers are immediately available throughout the day. All of our memory caregivers are up to date when it comes to the latest science and research-based practices in memory care. Our mission is to make a positive difference for each resident in our memory care program through cognitive exercises, safe socialization with other residents and assistance with daily tasks like waking up and getting ready for the day.
Enhanced safety protocols in place. Your loved one will be safe in our facility as there are security personnel onsite at all times. Each resident also wears a 24-hour alert fob that they can press incase of an emergency. Once the fob is activated, help will be there to help your loved one almost immediately.
Dementia-friendly floor plans in each memory care apartment. All apartments in the Lester Memory Care Suite are open floor plans designed to enhance the safety of those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Each memory care apartment is equipped with grab bars and emergency call buttons and do not include features that could cause harm like a stove or clothing iron. These dementia-friendly floor plans further enforce the safety of your loved one in our care.
Memory care is not one-size-fits-all. When we first meet your loved one, we truly take the time to get to know them – their likes, dislikes and most importantly – their level of independence. If needed, our staff members can assist your loved one with daily tasks like bathing, cleaning, dressing up, managing medications and going to the restroom. Our level of care is scalable, which means if your loved one does not require help 24/7 (and it is not a matter of safety) – staff members will respect their need to be independent. And if your loved one’s memory loss condition worsens, staff members can easily increase their level of care to ensure all of their needs are properly met.
Many fun activities and opportunities to socialize! Everyone needs to make time in their lives to socialize and have fun, especially seniors. At Lester Senior Living, we make sure our memory care residents are not left out from all the activities happening on campus. With the supervision of our memory caregivers, residents can socialize safely in our communal areas and join group activity classes like arts and crafts, trivia, chair yoga, card games and more.
