Alzheimer's disease causes a slow, progressive decline in mental functions. With progression, the brain has difficulty sorting through all the varied stimulants a person faces in everyday life. The person may become frightened or fearful of social situations and prefer to be alone most of the time. There is often accompanying depression as an individual recognizes they are having difficulties. The burden of caring for the person becomes more difficult as time passes and function decreases.
At the Groves, we are ready to help. We understand that caring for the Alzheimer's victim is too much for one person and strains the entire family. We understand you want the best care possible for your loved one. We understand the problems and safety issues faced when the victim can no longer differentiate right from wrong, hot from cold, safe from unsafe, or begins to wander. When this time comes, it's time to seek help.
The Groves provides a safe, stimulant controlled, environment where the Alzheimer's resident can receive quality care from Licensed Certified Caregivers specially trained to deal with the day to day battles our residents face. Residents feel free, not imprisoned and controlled as they roam about our lush campuses and visit our other houses at will. Care and activities for each resident are individualized to maximize both mental and physical health. Residents thrive in the camaraderie of being with others who understand them. At the Groves, residents feel safe, secure, and nurtured.
