As a loving son or daughter, you naturally want the best of care for your senior parent. The compassionate assisted living caregivers at Avalon Memory Care want you to know that while your parent is living with us, he or she will receive nothing less than respectful, loving care within our comfortable, safe, and fully-staffed homes. We invite you to take your time while visiting your loved one here, and please do let us know if you have any questions about your parent’s memory care.
Visiting Your Parent
Our locations have warm visitation areas for families and a beautiful sitting area, with plenty of natural light for enjoying some board games, puzzles, or crafts with your parent. If the weather permits, you and your parent might also like to relax on the covered decks, or take a stroll around our gorgeous garden areas. Many families prefer to visit during the morning or early afternoon hours, as some of our residents with Alzheimer’s experience sundowning symptoms later in the evening.
Sharing a Meal
Family members are always welcome to share a meal with their loved ones in our comfortable dining room. Our chef-prepared meals are as delicious as they are nutritious. You and your parent can enjoy a pleasant conversation while dining on fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and fish, poultry, or lean meats.
Bringing Additional Visitors
During the holiday season, families often wish to visit their loved ones in groups. We have found that individuals receiving Alzheimer’s support services tend to become overwhelmed easily when overstimulated. It may be wise to limit the number of visitors to two or three at any given time.
Bringing Personal Items
Please do feel free to bring personal items to help your loved one decorate for the holidays. Your aging parent may appreciate the addition of a cheerful poinsettia in his or her room. You could also bring holiday cookies or other treats for your parent to enjoy.
Avalon Memory Care is an award-winning program that offers compassionate, loving bedside care in Dallas, Houston, and Arlington for individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory loss conditions.
