Virginia Memory Care Facilities

Virginia is considered part of the mid-Atlantic and is gorgeously located on the border of the ocean and Appalachian Mountains. It is fitting to see why early settlers relocated to this prime real estate and why many different demographics do the same today, including a fair population of seniors. Highly specialized Virginia memory care communities are also housed here and provide exceptional health care.

Virginia Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

The rates and services at Alzheimer’s care homes in Virginia are variable. Some facilities are extraordinarily luxurious with all the latest trends and features in the healthcare industry, while others are more affordable and straightforward. Regardless of the dementia care facility, expect to receive outstanding service from the caregiving staff.

Dementia trained caregivers provide an active and engaging experience for residents as they feature a number of different programs scheduled throughout the day. In addition to providing things seniors can count on, like the same scheduled meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, etc.) the units also keep things fresh by bringing guest speakers and performers.

The activities help not only stimulate the mind but also the body and soul. A chapel or other spiritual meeting place can be provided on a daily or weekly basis. Residents may also receive light exercise, either in a group setting or personal assistance with helping in balance walking.

The dementia care settings in Virginia promote independence and wellness, helping restore self-esteem and feelings of doubt that are attributed to memory loss and trouble carrying out daily functions. Memory can often be stabilized, or even slightly improved, as caregivers work to provide a very caring loving atmosphere for residents.
