Alabama Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Alabama may offer cheaper dementia care services than the rest of the United States but that doesn’t mean the rooms lack in quality. Many affordable Alzheimer’s care homes are beautifully furnished. The rooms provide all the necessities, such as a comfortable bed and place to sit, but also traditionally a dresser and other small home furnishings. Residents are invited to bring in some of their items from their previous home like artwork and photographs of the family.

The restrooms are also oversized and designed to accommodate handicap accessibility. Dementia trained staff is available to assist with using the restroom and bathing, along with other hygiene tasks like styling hair or brushing teeth.

The buildings are designed for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in mind, so they are usually very well-lit to invoke feelings of being safe and well watched after. Simple additions like color-coded walls can go a long way in helping a resident with dementia more easily walk through the halls of the building.

Dementia care facilities in Alabama are generally supported by gourmet style kitchens for the general dining room and really great tasting meals. If you have ever visited the south before, you know that residents in the southern states really take their food very seriously! Not only is the food delightful, but staff often works with residents to serve special requests (based on medical needs, etc.) as well as serve enough variety so the selection doesn’t go stale. Nutritional value is of the utmost importance for anyone with dementia.
