What memory care at our Columbus GA community includes

Personal care assistance is integral to memory care. For those living with dementia and other memory conditions, activities of daily living (ADL) can become more challenging to accomplish. We help our residents feel supported, safe and confident with ADL assistance. Depending on each resident’s capabilities, we can assist with bathing, grooming, toileting, eating, dressing or mobility transfers.

Instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) like cooking, doing laundry and using the telephone can also grow more difficult in later stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s.  Our support team is well versed in memory care conditions and changing care needs, and we provide IADL assistance as each resident’s needs require.

Our wellness approach also includes a range of other services, including:

  • Calendar of enriching events and programs
  • Full meals
  • Medication management
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • 24-hour monitoring
  • Upholding traditions of Faith
  • Skilled medical care as required
  • Transportation services
