Memory Care is a specialized type of service that caters specifically to individuals facing the challenges of Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and other types of memory issues. At Azalea Estates of Monroe, we offer memory care to residents in need in the greater Monroe area. We call our dedicated services and living area for our Memory residents, our Legacy Program.
Residents also receive assistance with activities of daily living including bathing, grooming, and assistance with meals. Our service also includes medication management, all in a secure environment with 24-hour care from our specially trained caregivers.
What Is Azalea Estates of Monroe’s Approach to Memory Care?
“Memory Care with Hope”
We believe our evidence-based Memory Care can make a difference in the lives of our residents. It requires individualized support and research-based daily programming that focuses on the quality of daily life. Azalea Estates of Monroe provides a quiet, safe environment for your loved one. We start with whole person support and build daily programming from there.
Depending on the progression of the disease when one moves in, services are available in Assisted Living apartments as well as a more secure environment in our specialized memory wing. With a higher staff-to-resident ratio in our Legacy wing, and 24/7 nursing and care staff, you can be assured that day or night, the highest level of care is available for your loved one.
