Delaware Memory Care Facilities

Delaware is a small state in the northeastern part of the United States that is treated to the same outstanding healthcare and memory care as the rest of New England, but at far cheaper average monthly costs. The state of less than one million residents may lack some of the expanded selection and variety for dementia care compared to other neighboring states, but overall the value is exceptional.

Delaware Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

While Delaware may have some long winters, for the other three seasons of the year the weather is quite nice and fittingly dementia trained caregivers like to take advantage of the fantastic scenery by providing both indoor and outdoor services. The grounds around many of the top Alzheimer’s care homes in Delaware are flawless, and some even provide a community garden for residents to interact with.

Inside the facilities, rooms are kept very clean and residents are encouraged to make the place as cozy as possible. New residents often bring in some smaller furnishings as well as mementos from home, and friends and family are encouraged to stop by and visit often.

In addition to the outdoor activities, staff understands that light physical exercise can also promote a healthy brain. As a result, personal productivity tasks like writing a letter, playing a card game, or putting together a puzzle may be combined with light group exercise or dancing. Some of the premiere Delaware dementia care facilities even invite guest speakers and other activities to help keep cognitive abilities strong.

First and foremost, memory care is designed to provide 24/7 monitoring for loved ones who also generally need help with daily functions in some regard. Staff can assist residents with getting in and out of bed, using the restroom, bathing, getting dressed, stylish hair and other daily functions.

Delaware Alzheimer’s care facilities make it a point not to discriminate against any race or religion. These dementia care centers ultimately believe that a variety of people with different mindsets and beliefs can make for a vibrant, diverse culture and so all religions are encouraged to become new residents. What’s more is many of the top facilities also provide a daily or weekly space reserved specifically for religious services.

Staff understands that families care about a loved one more than anything, and since they likely can’t be there every day for them, the staff helps communicate and transmit any information about the family member, such as a drastic change in behavior or attitude of late.
