If your loved one is a resident within an assisted living community, it could be beneficial to know more about their memory care community. A study published in the Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association, titled Memory Care Reduces Nursing Home Admissions Among Assisted-Living Residents with Dementia reports findings that residents in memory care were less likely to have any hospital or nursing home admission within the first 180 days in assisted living. The study found that differences in care processes in memory care that help residents avoid transfer may be a significant factor in their findings.
October was a busy month for us! We celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness, Walked to End Alzheimer’s, and celebrated Halloween!
We appreciate all who helped us make the events successful and can’t wait for what November holds!
Thank you all for making my transition at The Springs such a wonderful experience. I started my journey here about two weeks ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. Every family member, resident, and team member I have encountered has been very welcoming and it makes me extremely blessed to be here. I started my Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Independent Living career in 2007. I worked my way through numerous departments before realizing my calling to be an Administrator of a community.
