Memory Care Help: Pomeroy’s Approach

Many people feel worried when their loved one is in need of memory care help. Receiving care from Pomeroy living has more to offer than you might realize. Our facility understands that every person living with dementia has unique preferences and needs.

We offer an individualized approach to caring for patients with memory loss. Caregivers create a personalized plan with structure that can improve your loved one’s quality of life. Pomeroy Living’s soothing environment keeps the stressors at bay and helps seniors rest, concentrate, and feel safe.

Here is what a day in the life at Pomeroy Living may look like.

Morning routine

Residents start their day with an individualized schedule. When they’re ready for breakfast, they’ll join the community in the dining room to enjoy our restaurant style experience prepared by one of our award winning chefs. Caregivers deliver the food with a positive attitude. Every meal has the right nutrients, vitamins, and minerals necessary for better overall health.

After breakfast, residents can spend their time doing any preferred activity. Pomeroy Living has excellent outdoor venues where residents can walk and enjoy a breath of fresh air while enjoying the stunning landscape. Residents can also choose to do other activities, such as attending a technology class to learn how to answer emails or even get some low-impact physical activity in water aerobics or yoga.

Afternoon routine

At Pomeroy Living, residents enjoy lunch from a diverse menu. That includes sandwiches, salads, and soups, all cooked with the freshest ingredients. Every meal is properly balanced to accommodate their needs.

After lunch, residents can stay inside and read books, and enjoy mind-engaging programs, or art studios. Overall, there are plenty of activities at your disposal that can provide cognitive stimulation.

Evening routine

Dinner time is the perfect moment to socialize with other residents, guests, or family members. Pomeroy Living residents can also take part in an evening class or club. Or opt for some rest. Our memory care residents benefit from more structured social activities and crafts designed to stimulate and keep the mind fresh and slow the progress of dementia and other conditions affecting memory and cognition.

When is the best time to receive memory care help?

A day in the life of an older adult with dementia can be very challenging, especially if there is no one there to help them. If you notice a decline in your loved one’s physical health, drastic loss of mobility, or serious forgetfulness, residing at Pomeroy Living can help.

Dementia can cause a disruption in social and behavioral skills. Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease can lose track of time, have trouble maintaining a conversation, and tend to misplace things. They are prone to making unintentional decisions that can affect their day-to-day life.

With cases such as these, it is best to leave caring for memory loss in the hands of professionals. Memory care for seniors offers reliability, structure, safety, and an overall better quality of life.
