Nebraska Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

When families decide to make the move and relocate a loved one into a dementia care home, it is a major transition. The senior is leaving behind familiar surroundings for a brand new facility that may seem extremely large and uncomfortable at first. As a result, it is of the utmost importance for dementia trained staff to make new admittances feel as welcomed and loved and comfortable as possible.

Thankfully, the presentation at many of the Alzheimer’s care homes in Nebraska is not only beautiful but remarkably clean. The rooms are fitted with very comfortable beds and oversized bathrooms to accommodate all seniors. The rooms are private, and staff is mindful to respect personal privacy while also maintaining 24-hour service and monitoring for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Because disorientation and confusion are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia, the buildings are designed and situated for residents with cognitive disabilities to help them easily walk around the facility while not wandering outside the premise without notice.

In addition to high quality rooms, the top memory care homes in Nebraska also feature a variety of activities on a daily basis, from ones that focus on personal productivity to those related to leisure. Guest speakers and other individuals outside the facility (such as musicians) can be invited and often perform or teach residents something new. These are great opportunities for individuals to associate with other residents and enjoy socialization.
