Why You Should Consider Assisted Living-Memory Care for Your Loved One

|

Caring for a loved one suffering from physical or cognitive decline is no easy task.  Yet, every year countless individuals take on this responsibility out of necessity and become the main caregiver for their loved one.  Caregiving can be overwhelming and emotional, requiring your time and energy and (more than likely), conflicting with your other responsibilities either at home or work. This can lead to mental, physical, and emotional exhaustion, often called caregiver burnout.  As the number of people affected continues to rise with an aging population, it is more important than ever to provide the best possible support for both the individual and their loved ones.

Supportive Environment

At Blossom Springs we are proud to offer a luxurious and safe environment for our residents to live and thrive, as well as a supportive atmosphere for the families of our residents.  We understand that the decision to move your loved one into a community can be difficult, therefore we offer a monthly caregiver support group as well as multiple educational sessions throughout the year, these are open to anyone in the community.

Person-Centered Care

The dedicated team at Blossom Springs is proud to provide person-centered care to each of our residents.  Together with the resident’s family, we establish daily patterns such as wake and sleep times.  If the resident worked 3rd shift their entire career, it is understandable that their sleep patterns will be different from someone who worked first shift.  Interest in hobbies will also be established to allow for creating activities and programming to match their likes and dislikes.  By doing this, it will increase their level of engagement and improve their quality of life.

With person-centered care, the time is taken to understand the unique characteristics of the resident.  This is especially helpful if they cannot verbally express their needs, as they may express them through facial expressions and body language.

By focusing on delivering care based on an individual’s preferences and established habits, we can enhance the overall environment and experience for our residents and their loved ones.

At the heart of all this is a sense of routine and structure. This pattern is important for those with cognitive issues and adds some further comfort and stability. The last thing that residents need in this safe new environment is any sort of surprise that causes distress or confusion. Effective memory care improves the quality of life of dementia patients.

Testimonials

"We absolutely LOVE Blossom Springs for our darling Dad!! We first looked into moving from Cedarbrook in Bloomfield Hills as we wanted more contact to my dad during Covid-19 via a Amazon device called an Echo Show which they wouldn’t allow there. But we absolutely are so thrilled to have him at Blossom Springs!!! The people are sooooo friendly & helpful & sweet & caring!!! They treat our dad ~ Dr. O ~ so lovingly & we greatly appreciate all of the thought & care they have put into it! But also, the building & interior design is stunningly gorgeous! And the food ~ by Andiamos ~ is delicious!! We just love it there & wish Covid wasn’t such an issue right now but they have given us peace of mind during some very difficult times!!"
