"We have had a very positive experience with 4 Seasons Senior Living and the Gillespie house. The staff is very friendly, and the owners are very hands-on and have reached out to us several times to make sure that we are happy with the care our loved one is receiving."
Memory care for seniors sometimes called Alzheimer's care provides housing and 24-hour care for the elderly with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Memory care communities are residential spaces that cater to the specific needs of seniors with memory loss. Services offered for those with memory loss include 24-hour care and supervision, medication management, incontinence care, assistance with personal care, laundry, feeding assistance, housekeeping, mobility assistance, and memory-enhancing activities.
Our residential care homes provide all of these services and a safe environment for your loved ones. Our assisted living memory care homes are open-floored, non-slip, and have a low resident-to-staff ratio. Our caretakers are professionally trained to focus on improving quality of life, reducing confusion, and preventing wandering.
We have specifically designed a support system to provide quality senior care for your loved one with memory loss and other cognitive needs.
We maintain a low resident-to-staff ratio (4:1) at our residential care homes. This makes providing individualized senior care and memory care for the elderly easier. Memory care plans are created specifically for each resident.
Caring for a loved one with memory loss can be overwhelming.
At 4 Seasons Senior Living, we provide support and education to families. We direct you to make informed decisions about the level of care required for your loved ones.
You are not alone.
Our professional staff, caregivers, and nurses receive special training in Alzheimer's and dementia-related care. Our staff understands the importance of being compassionate, patient, and maintaining a set daily routine that is tailored to each resident.
