Memory Care is suitable for individuals needing enhanced care, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Our memory care communities aim to accommodate individuals who require more assistance and prompting with daily activities. With a higher staffing ratio compared to independent and assisted living, our team is equipped to provide our residents with loving care specific to their needs.
Safety is a key priority at Covington Senior Living and because some residents may wander, our unit is kept locked at all times. Each resident is given an advanced fall monitoring pendant. This means each resident can press their button to notify staff in need of assistance and if a fall occurs, the pendant will alert staff immediately.
Other services that accompany memory care are shower and personal hygiene assistance, restroom assistance, medication management, laundry services, and escorting for meals and activities.
Common activities in memory care include scenic drives, animal therapy, cooking and book clubs, musical performances, exercise, and so much more! It is our goal to provide activities that help our residents feel joy every day while simultaneously involving skills related to cognition. Family is encouraged to visit often and participate in activities with their loved ones.
Memory care holds a very special space at Covington Senior Living, and we cherish the role we take on in the lives of those we serve.
