Memory Care Disclosure
Our philosophy is to provide quality services. for individuals that may be assessed to have physical and/or cognitive limitations; and to determine which individual! services are most appropriate, to achieve the most independent and comfortable lifestyle for each resident! It is our intention to promote dignity and respect for our residents and support for their families. We each have a role to play on behalf of the resident. We accept the resident for who they are today and can help you understand the disease process! You can help us by pointing out changes in behavior and physical issues that may not be as apparent to us!
It is important to note that the physician’s role in the resident’s care is critical during this process. It is the resident’s physician, and only the physician, who can prescribe appropriate medications and make changes in writing to the medication program as the resident’s condition changes. Having a singular pharmacy provide these medications is also important to assist the physician in determining any potential adverse interactions or reactions.
Many individuals and families now! face the reality of caring for an aging relative. Sometimes elderly, residents experience long and short-term memory loss. The supportive and caring environment that Regency Park provides is a residential program that provides comfort! security measures’ and the availability of 24 hour staff.! Since generalized aging and memory impairment in the elderly affects each person differently, it is impossible to have a simple program that meets each residents’ needs identically. At the beginning of our partnership, it is important to clearly define the services and care we are able to provide in our program!
As aging, and the diseases that cause memory impairment progress, you or the resident will become more at risk for falls, elopement, weight loss and dehydration, behaviour changes, infections, metobolic changes, and compromised skin integrity. In addition, our community strives to provide a homelike atmosphere where we offer a safe and secure environment.
