Knowing when to move your loved one to an assisted living community never comes easy. In fact, you’ll probably spend many months considering whether or not this move is the best decision. At Kensington Park Senior Living, we feel that making this life-changing decision can be made easier when you feel completely confident in the community. We can’t take away the difficulty that often accompanies a decision like this, but we can offer you a supportive hand as you venture down this path.
One of the biggest concerns our families have is the level of care their loved ones will get with everyday, basic necessities such as eating, dressing and bathing. If you have a parent who is in the middle to late stages of Alzheimer’s or memory care, these concerns are especially crucial. After all, how will you know if your parent is being cared for when he or she cannot convey these needs?
Here are some questions that are commonly asked by our families:
How will my mom know when meal time is?
My dad thinks that he showers regularly, but really, he hasn’t taken one in quite some time. How would I know that his hygiene needs are being followed up with?
My mom tends to soil herself but refuses to wear incontinence products. She then ends up sitting in dirty clothes. How will you help her?
My dad has trouble with his vision. Who will help him get around?
Our loving professionals have the training and experience needed to care for your parent during all stages of memory care as it progresses. Our continuum of care adapts to meet these needs. It can be difficult to watch your parent lose control over the ability to use the washroom or eat independently, but this is where our professionals become especially involved and accommodate your loved one through all parts of their day.
Your loved one will never be alone. Our promise is to love and care for your family as we do our own, and we accomplish this by keeping three objectives in mind at all times; love for seniors (and yes we actually love), respect for one another, and a passion for excellence!
This promise is why we go above and beyond to make sure your loved ones are well taken care of. Your parent will have all three meals cooked for them, we will wash your loved one’s clothes each week, maintain the cleanliness of their room and ensure that they are up and ready for each day. We will invite and encourage them to attend social events and outings. We will engage and support your loved one 100% of the time – that is a promise.
Kensington Park Senior Living strives for excellence in all that we do. Our professionals don’t just watch over our residents; They interact with them; They laugh with them; They cry with them. Your family is our family.
