Elder Care - Respite Resorts And Advance Care
One of the most unfortunate aspects of aging is the unexpected nature of elder care. Things can change in an instant. Life never follows a set plan. When families take on the responsibility of caring for an aging parent or loved one, the commitment is often far more than they ever expected. When situations arise that require a caregiver's absence, or when a senior requires temporary advanced care, elder care living provides the option of respite resort stays. After an injury or illness, the need for an immediate solution requires an immediate response. We can provide such a response in less than six hours.
Elder care presents its own unique set of challenges for the family members who take on the responsibility themselves. The ability to take vacations or respond to other family emergencies can often make the job seem all the harder. However, an elder care respite resort can provide family members with a much needed break from day to day care responsibilities. This provides an excellent opportunity for seniors whose needs are advancing beyond what the family can support. A respite stay can act not only as a needed break or an emergency option during crisis, but also as a test drive of sorts for more intense senior care options.
For seniors who require more advanced elder care on a more permanent basis, find a elder care resort that is a trusted provider of assisted living services with communities throughout the San Francisco Bay area. One that can provide a higher level of independent senior diabetes management as well as dementia care for seniors who are not quite ready for full time care, but need the support of assisted living. When other facilities might deem a resident in need of full time nursing care, we provide more advanced in-residence services to prolong a senior's ability to remain independent.
In terms of elder care in assisted living facilities, our diabetes management services include blood glucose checks, medication management, prescription fulfillment, nutritional support including specialized diets, group exercise activities, and continuing education for seniors with diabetes. A dementia care plan assesses the cognitive abilities of each resident suffering memory decline and develops a personalize plan of care to include the support services each resident needs at the most appropriate levels. We provide pet companions, social activities, exercise plans, hydration and nutrition services, as well as challenge activities meant to keep a resident's mind active and care for the caregiver in the form of family counseling.
