Frequently Asked Question
Can you care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease?
Yes, we have many patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our licensed nurses are experienced in caring for and monitoring residents with these conditions. We have secure grounds, so residents can enjoy the gardens and the outdoors without the risk of wandering off or getting lost.
Can you make sure that my mother takes her medicine every day?
Yes, our fully licensed nursing staff will monitor your mother’s medication and give her the medication she needs at the proper time.
My father has Alzheimer’s and lives alone. What signs may signal that it may be time to move my father to a senior care center?
In the early stages of dementia, your father may forget recently learned information, but won’t have trouble with normal tasks like getting dressed or simple meal preparation, like warming up a can of soup for lunch.
In moderate stages of Alzheimer’s disease, he will begin to experience difficulty getting dressed by himself and taking care of himself. He may repeat stories, forget where things are (like the can opener), and may forget the steps of using a microwave or a stove.
In the severe stages of Alzheimer’s, patients will not be able to recognize family members and will no longer have bladder control.
Somewhere between the moderate and severe stages of Alzheimer’s disease, your father will need full-time care.
My grandmother loves her garden, but needs to be moved to a care center. Will she be able to go outside frequently (when she wants to) while at Cloisters of the Valley senior care center?
Yes, we have beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns and patios, secured by gates and fences. She can go outside whenever she wishes.
Do you offer care on a weekly or monthly basis?
Yes, we have monthly rates, including rehabilitation care and hospice care rates.
