Arizona Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

The first living center designed exclusively for seniors was introduced in Arizona over a half century ago, and fittingly the state continues to be a leader in elderly care facilities. Arizona Alzheimer’s care homes are extremely reputable and the number of features at most dementia care homes is fantastic.

The memory care services combine traditional medications used to treat the disease along with a more unique, holistic approach to get to the heart of cognitive disabilities. It is not uncommon to find a higher than normal staff-to-resident ratio at many dementia care facilities across the country, but this is especially true of centers in Arizona where the state collectively seems to pride itself in this regard. The dementia care staff also provides 24/7 monitoring regardless of the hour in the night.

Some dementia care homes in Arizona are all inclusive, meaning you pay one monthly fee for the room as well as all of the services, while others charge a base rate for the room and then some services may be available only with an extra charge. You will need to inquire with the particular memory care provider to get all the details regarding amenities offered.

Another aspect that separates high quality Alzheimer’s care homes in Arizona is that some communities often admit fewer residents than other facilities. The theory behind this approach is the ratio of trained staff to residents will be smaller, thus providing more one-on-one interaction and treatment, and the residents will also feel comfortable in a community that is not so overbearing. The smart design and intimate settings can really provide a ton of comfort and security for residents that tend to get frightened or confused easily due to the awful symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
