How To Choose The Right Residential Care For Your Loved One With Alzheimer’s Disease


Navigating Alzheimer’s disease with a loved one is a difficult journey, especially when that loved one can no longer live on their own. The decision to move your loved one into a residential care facility is not easy, but it is often the best way to ensure they receive the level of care they need. When the time comes for residential care, Liberty Senior Living and Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services have options for your loved one. 


Independent or Assisted Living:

Liberty Senior Living provides both independent and assisted living options. Independent living is better for someone with early Alzheimer’s who can still care for themselves and live alone safely, but may have a difficult time managing an entire house. When a little more support is needed, assisted living bridges the gap between living independently and in a nursing home. Our Liberty Senior Living communities provide meals, housekeeping, medication management and recreational and social programs, allowing your loved one to live as independently as possible while receiving additional support. Some of our Liberty Senior Living communities also have specialized Dementia Care Programs and Memory Support Units with staff trained in memory care who can facilitate meaningful engagement and activities based on an individual’s preferences and strengths. 


Nursing Home:

During the later stages of Alzheimer’s, it is usually best to transition your loved one to a nursing home. Our Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services’ skilled nursing facilities provide around-the-clock care that includes long-term medical treatment, nutritional meals and social activities. The stages of Alzheimer’s disease affect everyone differently. Our team carefully reviews each resident’s medical history to make sure Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services is the best fit for their specific needs.


Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease. Through each stage, Liberty Healthcare’s ability to provide a continuum of care services allows your loved one to easily transition as their level of care changes. Our team of dedicated caregivers is on standby to help you and your loved one through the challenges of this disease. Creating a plan early on can help ease the physical, emotional and financial burdens of caregiving. Early planning may also allow your loved one with Alzheimer’s to express their personal preferences for the future. To start creating that plan now, you can request a free consultation here or give us a call at 1-800-999-9883.
