Not Your Ordinary Memory Care Facility

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 caregivers in Harford County, Maryland, we are very proud to provide evidence-based treatment options to families like yours. Our trained and certified staff brings decades of experience in Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s dementia, frontotemporal dementia, semantic dementia, vascular dementia, and dementia with Lewy bodies. The Bel Air Assisted Living facility is trusted by doctors and families in Greater Baltimore to care for neurological degenerative disorders.

Private En-Suite Rooms

Each resident has their own carpeted private room with an en-suite bathroom, and everyone’s room is the same size, with the same amenities. There’s wiring for cable TV, internet, and phone and a call button in the bathroom and by the bed. The light in the bathroom is automatic and there’s a heat lamp in the handicap accessible shower. Caregivers can assist with all tasks such as grooming, toileting, and bathing.

We Make Every Day Meaningful

Every day, we oversee structured activities such as a scrapbook club, light exercise, a beauty salon, wreath decorating, and devotional services. Memory care residents aren’t separated from the rest of the group, as we’ve found that the interactions between people with memory issues and those without can be profoundly fulfilling for both. Individuals with dementia benefit from support and guidance from peers, while those without memory issues get a sense of pride from helping out.

With three caregivers dedicated to taking care of just 16 residents at peak times, every resident gets the support and attention they deserve.

All-Inclusive Rates

In Maryland, there are three levels of senior care: levels 1, 2, and 3. You and your loved one will fill out an assessment that standardized for all facilities in the state to determine which level of care is appropriate. One of the best things about Bel Air Assisted Living is that we offer flat, all-inclusive rates for each level of care.

As such, you won’t face any additional fees for the room, care, food, or medication management. “While we don’t accept Medicaid, we can help residents and families fill out documentation to submit to long-term insurance plans for reimbursement of some or all of the monthly fee, according to the terms of the policy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our caregivers and medical team are up to date with all CDC and Maryland Department of Health rules and guidelines. We prioritize health and safety, and are happy to answer any questions about our protocols.
Twice a year, the assisted living manager and delegating nurse lead a full review of each resident’s personalized service plan. Our entire medical staff participates in the review. Additionally, if at any time the resident’s mental, physical, emotional, or social needs change, the personalized service plan may be placed under voluntary review. For example, a service plan review typically occurs after hospitalization or when a new diagnosis is delivered. Whenever the personalized service plan is updated, our entire staff is briefed on the change and trained to accommodate it.
Home health agencies are hired to meet specific needs including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wound care, hospice care, podiatry services, mobile x-ray services, and lab work. In addition, our registered nurse and house doctor are on call 24 hours a day. For a full list of amenities, please see our Amenities page.
