Kentucky Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Kentucky Alzheimer’s care facilities have a number of different well-received amenities but among the best is the excellent food. The south is known for cooking extremely tasty, generous meals and you can expect to find much of the same with dementia care homes in this state, though with a slightly higher emphasis on nutritional value than other age groups.

These facilities understand that food is a big part of any healthy lifestyle, and food has been scientifically proven to even help with cognitive disabilities. Expect for a loved one to receive at least three well-balanced meals per day in addition to potential snack times and celebrations for special events like a birthday or holiday. Private seating rooms are also generally featured for family members to join a resident for a more exclusive and secluded meal.

The top-rated facilities for Alzheimer’s care in Kentucky are also beautifully furnished. Along with comfortable beds and oversized bathrooms, the private rooms can potentially accommodate some small furniture from the last home as well as special possessions that the resident wants hanged or displaying on a dresser or desk. Staff is also there to check-up on the resident in a reasonable time period, observing privacy while also being able to assist with various functions like hygiene assistance and getting ready for the day.
