It starts with Mom forgetting that she left the stove on. Then, a few weeks later, you notice that she is confused and repeating herself at a family event. You both visit a neurologist and a diagnosis is delivered: Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. Immediately, many questions come to mind. Will Mom be okay? How will our family handle this? Most importantly, you realize that Mom cannot live at home alone… so where does she go now?
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia can be emotionally overwhelming. As many as 5.1 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, yet few families are equipped to manage the effects of this neurological disorder. Many families feel guilty that they cannot meet the time-consuming needs of their loved one without help. You and your siblings already lead a busy life — where is the time for the medications, doctors’ visits, check-ups, meals, and treatments that your loved one needs?
Bel Air Assisted Living is here to help. As leading Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia professionals in Harford County, Maryland, we are very proud to provide evidence-based treatment options to families like yours.

Many families feel a strong peace of mind after their loved one moves to Bel Air Assisted Living. For the first time in months or years, brothers and sisters can breathe a sigh of relief.

After adjusting to their new home, you may notice that your loved one is happier, less anxious, eating well, engaging in activities, and appears healthier and stronger. In this way, the memory care program will make a positive difference not just for your loved one, but for your entire family.
