Missouri Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

The top Alzheimer’s care homes in Missouri and the rest of the nation offer a fair balance of routine and variety to keep residents expecting of some services as well as organized, while also providing enough routine not to bore them. It means that meal-times are regularly scheduled and some events take place at the same time every day, or every week.

The routine helps provide some structure that residents can rely on, particularly because Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are known to provide an increased amount of disorientation and confusion.

The buildings at Missouri dementia care communities are designed to be easily navigational for residents, providing color cues or other easy to identify indicators to lead residents back to a central corridor or hall where their private room exists. Extra security measures are often in place like security pendants along with the 24/7 monitoring to help avoid any unfortunate cases of wandering and getting lost outside the building premise.

Along with the general routine, the way certified dementia caregiver staff likes to add a little variety and flair is through the daily activities. The range of activities in dementia care setting is usually extremely diverse. It often involves light group exercise combined with personal productivity tasks and leisure games or brain activities.

As a result, seniors that live in these settings may have a nice structure while also enjoying a range of activities that doesn’t make every day seem like “Groundhog Day”. And their experience here is further enhanced when friends and family visit often, which is a huge point of encouragement for residents that join Missouri memory care communities.
