It starts with Mom forgetting that he left the stove on. Then, a few weeks later, you find her in bed talking to herself. 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 is Dad going to handle this? Most importantly, Mom cannot live at home… 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. Furthermore, many families feel guilty that they cannot properly attend to the time-consuming needs of their loved one. You and your siblings already lead a busy life — where is the time for pills, doctors’ visits, check-ups, meals, and treatments that your aging relative deserves?
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 state-of-the-art, scientific treatment options to families like yours. Our trained and certified staff brings decades of experience in Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, frontotemporal dementia, semantic dementia, vascular dementia, and dementia with Lewy bodies. The Bel Air Assisted Living facility is trusted by hundreds of doctors and families in Greater Baltimore to care for neurological degenerative disorders.
We guide Alzheimer’s & Dementia residents throughout their day:
- Reminders for breakfast, lunch, activities, dinner, and bedtime
- Fun, sensory activities and mental puzzles to slow the growth of neurological disorders
- Social time with the rest of our Assisted Living, Independent Living, and Respite Stay residents
- One-on-one counseling with nurses and resident assistants
- Help with food & fluid consumption, medication, and pain management
- Doors are protected from wandering outside
- Bathrooms are safe, with railings and room for walkers and wheelchairs
- Residents are kept away from stairs and sharp objects
Our facility is proud to implement best-in-industry techniques for handling outbursts and personality symptoms caused by Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We never use restraints or physical force on any resident — you will find that Bel Air Assisted Living is quite different from large, commercial facilities in this regard. Furthermore, as is especially important with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, Bel Air Assisted Living has very low staff turnover so residents are greeted with the same, familiar faces… every day.
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. Your loved one is no longer at risk of falls, getting lost, and being unable to call for help. Life is different now. After a few months of living with us, you will observe a noticeable difference: your loved one is happier, less prone to episodes, and healthier. On the whole, our treatment program makes a significant, positive difference for your entire family.
