Idaho Memory Care Facilities

Idaho is a state of less than 2 million people that is fairly spread out and secluded. Many seniors consider it a noteworthy place to retire due to the quiet, peaceful settings and fair prices. Idaho dementia care homes provide a nice balance, and should be considered by families looking to relocate a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia.

Idaho Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

The services offered at Idaho dementia care homes are typical of the rest of the nation. Standard amenities include daily servings of meals, housekeeping, various activities and daily events, assistance with tasks like getting in and out of bed, hygiene, getting dressed, and visitation hours for friends and family to visit.

Along with the serving of well-balanced, nutritional meals these facilities also often provide a private dining area for friends and family that want to join a loved one for dinner or another type of meal. Even if a family member is displaced, the staff at memory care facilities know that it shouldn’t separate the rest of the family, so active and frequent visitation is very much encouraged.

Along with luxuries like a TV room with modern flat-screens and places to do arts and crafts and play card games, some dementia care homes might even take it a step further by being pet-friendly (with small breeds usually only allowed) or introduce a community garden and outside walking paths to get some fresh air each day. A library with computer and internet access is also often provided.

Idaho Alzheimer’s care homes often install extra security measures since wandering and getting lost is a common habit of residents with dementia. The 24-hour security systems may include automatically locking doors, security pendants, outdoor patrols and other features, as well as simple navigation tools for residents like color-coded walls or other simple tips to get residents to and from their private rooms.

When seniors need transportation to and from appointments outside the facility, most staff members are also happy to accommodate if a loved one is unavailable to bring the family member personally.
