Kingsland Walk Senior Living Concentrates on Alzheimer’s Awareness

Category: Memory Care

Author: Kingsland Walk Senior Living Concentrates on Alzheimer’s Awareness

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness month, bringing the plight of those facing the diagnosis, and the need for a cure, to the forefront. Today, there are more than 6.2 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s Disease, and while research continues, a cure is yet to be identified. Arrow Senior Living is working to heighten awareness of Alzheimer’s disease during the month of November through discussion and education.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common type of dementia and a terminal condition. It’s a progressive loss of brain cells resulting in a decline of day-to-day cognition and functioning. There is no cure; however, medication and therapies may help manage symptoms.

We can best help and engage individuals with Alzheimer’s disease by providing a structured routine in a calm and safe environment. Engagement should be offered through music, sensory, and activities. Help needs to be provided with overall care and hygiene.

Someone who is living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias can benefit from life in our Memory Care Neighborhood. We offer specialized service of care, implement socialization opportunities, create a sense of security, and provide support for the family.

At Kingsland Walk Senior Living we continue to increase our knowledge of Alzheimer’s through ongoing education, so we can better empower those living with the disease and help their families to better cope. Our Memory Care Neighborhoods maintain awareness of this disease, while offering engagement, safety, and comfort to our residents.
