Accent on Seniors, a leading senior living referral service that helps families find senior living options, is pleased to announce it offers specialty senior referral services catering to the needs of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. These services save families countless hours researching senior living options on their own, a task that is especially difficult for those who are caring for their loved ones while searching for high-quality long-term care options that focus on innovative memory care services.

Memory care is a relatively new field of senior-oriented health care, and it has been conscientiously developed for those who have Alzheimer’s or other dementia related health conditions, as well as their spouses, family and caretakers. Both conditions require a different approach and philosophy of care than is typically offered at an average assisted living or nursing home facility. The more seniors and their families learn about available long-term care options early on, the sooner they can begin making confident plans for the future.

“Today, many assisted living communities feature specialized memory care programs for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia-related cognitive decline. Most of these programs, run by trained staff, have a higher caregiver to resident ratio and seek to maximize the quality of life of residents with activities and stimulation appropriate for their functional level,” says Djena Graves Lennix, President of Accent on Seniors.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than five million (5,000,000) Americans are currently living with some form of dementia. In some cases, Alzheimer’s or dementia is diagnosed independently. In others, dementia-related symptoms are due to the progression of a primary disease such as Parkinson’s disease, cancer or as a side–effect of other medical treatments or medications.

Regardless of the cause, those living with dementia need specialized care that keeps them physically and emotionally well, while also providing the right level of support and safety precautions so that affected seniors can live as independently and safely as possible, for as long as possible. Specialized memory care also includes providing seniors with a wide range of activities to keep them active and engaged. This specialized care does usually cost more per month than traditional assisted living due to the greater need for individual programming and increased staff. Continued research has proven that physical health paired with positive mental stimulation can slow down the progression of these debilitating conditions.

Accent on Seniors is a senior living referral service that applies a client-centric approach to educating seniors and their families about their long-term living options, ranging from home healthcare services to a broad range of senior living communities. According to Graves Lennix, who is also a Certified Senior Advisor, “It is important to find the right community that can care for your loved one in the healthiest manner to which he/she best responds.” She continued, “Our experienced senior living specialists make referrals and recommendations to communities who specialize in caring for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia tailored to each of our client’s needs, wants and budget.”

Those seeking more information about memory care options for themselves or loved ones are encouraged to contact Accent on Seniors and ask for information regarding senior living options that prioritize innovative memory care.
