Rhode Island Memory Care Facilities

Rhode Island is the smallest of all the states in the U.S. based on territory and one of the smallest in terms of population. With a little over 1 million people, Rhode Island memory care facilities are very nice but lack in quantity. The selection is a bit limited also because there are no major cities in the tiny state, but the quieter pace of living and caring staff makes Rhode Island dementia care homes a great draw.

Rhode Island Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Rhode Island Alzheimer’s care facilities provide several services that you would also find in a traditional nursing home. This includes semi-private or private rooms, private bathrooms, cafeteria with prepared meals (usually offering a choice of more than one entree per meal), day-use areas for scheduled programs and activities, as well as assistance with daily tasks like getting in and out of bed, using the bathroom, bathing, getting dressed and grooming for the day.

The licensed caregiver staff is employed around the clock to offer their services. So even in the middle of the night, staff is there to assist residents that either are having trouble sleeping in pain, or have even fallen out of a bed. The staff is also friendly and helpful, as the people that seek caregiving jobs truly want to make a difference and leave a lasting imprint with the seniors they serve.

The staff employed at these facilities also understand that Alzheimer’s is a family disease. It does not only affect the individual suffering from the cognitive disease (though of course it impacts them most drastically), but also family and friends. As a result, staff at the best Rhode Island Alzheimer’s care homes maintain frequent communication with family members and are sure to notify whenever behavior changes or physical health deteriorate.

The goal of course is not to let it ever reach that point, and while death is inevitable for all of us, dementia care homes are not a last resort. Many seniors live in dementia care facilities for many, many years, and not only that but have a pleasant and fulfilling life. They fully enjoy living there and interacting with staff and other residents on a daily basis.
