Is It Time for Memory Care?

Deciding when your loved one is ready to move into a memory care community can be a very difficult decision. At times, it is not always possible to continue providing  a safe and secure environment at home that your loved one might need. With our specialized knowledge, the Cross Creek team can help you make informed decisions regarding the care of your loved one.

Is my loved one ready to move?

Below are some key considerations:

Safety

The biggest reason an individual needs to transition to memory care is because they are becoming unsafe in their current living circumstances. Whether they are at risk for a fall, need assistance with daily activities, or forgetfulness is leading to dangerous circumstances like leaving the stovetop turned on or confusing medications, a memory care community can provide a safe and supportive environment.

Community

Often, seniors can begin to feel isolated as they age and even begin to experience depression or anxiety due to loneliness. Residents at Cross Creek can enjoy an enriching social environment that will allow them to engage in their surroundings and continue living life to the fullest, all while their health needs are closely monitored by an attentive staff.

Care

Symptoms of Alzheimer’s or dementia can become too progressed for caregivers to manage at home. Whether this is the case for you or not, memory care communities can help enrich the life of your loved one. Cross Creek’s all-inclusive rates include medication management, individualized plans of care, meals and a 24-hour licensed nursing staff to ensure each resident’s safety. When their loved ones are living in Cross Creek, family members and caregivers can relax knowing that their care needs are met.
