There are many reasons to consider before moving into a British Columbia Ca Alzheimer’s Care Retirement community. Perhaps the family member has decided that his/her home is difficult to maintain. Moving might mean that they wish to be in a memory care retirement community for the social interaction with other people his/her age. Other reasons could be having someone to take care of housekeeping and meal preparation. Choosing the right Alzheimer’s care facility may take some time and consideration. Things to consider include dementia care and visiting the British Columbia Ca Alzheimer’s Care Retirement community to see the facility. Make an appointment to sit in on some of the activities and eat in the dining room.
You will want to see the living quarters and talk with the Alzheimer’s care providers. Ask about transportation that is provided by the memory care facility. If he/she needs extensive visits for medical treatment, for example daily dialysis, you may have to make other transportation arrangements.
Since moving to a continuing care community is a life-long commitment, the costs involved are a major consideration. You will need to talk to the staff so there will not be any hidden expenses.
