What is Memory Care in Assisted Living?
Memory Care in Assisted Living is a combination of programming, housing, supportive services, and health care designed for those who need assistance with activities of daily living as well as memory support.
Our programs provide a secure environment and specially trained staff to provide meaningful engagement with residents based on their abilities, personal interest, and life skills.
What are Activities of Daily Living?
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are routine activities that people who are entirely independent can be expected to do on a daily basis without assistance. These include: taking medications, personal hygiene such as showering and brushing one’s teeth, getting dressed, getting around, and getting into and out of bed. Assisted Living residents generally need extra assistance with one or more of these.
What kind of activities will a senior living community provide?
Resident activities are geared to each individual’s personal interests. At Jaybird Senior Living, our Life Enrichment Coordinators meet with each resident to learn about their personal interests and then design activities around these. The Life Enrichment Coordinators will also take into account a resident’s age, health status, sensory abilities, lifestyle, ethnic, cultural, and religious beliefs, values, experiences, needs, abilities, and skills when planning activities.
Can I bring my own furnishings?
Residents are more than welcome to furnish their apartments with their own personal furniture and belongings. Blinds are provided in each apartment, and residents may hang draperies, valances, and pictures, as well. Our Maintenance Coordinators are more than happy to offer assistance. Enquire with our staff for more information.
Do I have to eat all my meals in the community dining room?
Residents are encouraged to eat meals in the dining room so they can enjoy all the social benefits of life at Jaybird Senior Living. However, if you are feeling ill, we prefer that you stay in your apartment for your own wellbeing as well as that of other residents. Room service is provided free of charge during your illness, and for an additional fee if you choose to remain in your apartment for reasons other than illness.
Jaybird Senior Living communities offer open dining hours, so you are free to stop by for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on your schedule. We also have snacks available at all times, and the hospitality bar is always open.
Is transportation available for doctor’s appointments and shopping trips?
Jaybird Senior Living provides local transportation to doctor’s appointments when scheduled in advance. Check our weekly transportation schedule for details on upcoming shopping trips, or request that our Life Enrichment Coordinator do your shopping for you while we’re out.
If you would like our staff to stay with you during a medical appointment, an additional charge may apply. We strongly encourage residents’ families to provide transportation to doctor’s appointments, if possible, in order to remain up to date on any medical concerns.
