Plan for Aging Parents Who Need Different Levels of Care
If you have aging parents, you may be struggling to figure out how best to care for them.
If you have aging parents, you may be struggling to figure out how best to care for them. Everyone ages differently, and adult children often find that one parent has different needs than the other. Maybe your mother is still the firecracker she’s always been and is just looking for some help with a few daily tasks but your father is experiencing some memory loss. Regardless of their needs, they should still be able to live close together. That’s why at Solterra Chandler, we offer both assisted living as well as memory care communities. Here’s what we can offer your family, whatever their needs may be.
Parents Who Just Need a Bit of Help
As we get older, it can become difficult to do the things we are used to doing. It’s natural to lose some mobility and muscle strength in age, but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating. That’s why we do everything we can to give the support our residents need while also helping them keep their sense of independence.
In our Chandler assisted living community, we do everything we can to help our residents meet their needs while still living a full life. Our primary goal isn’t just taking care of our residents’ physical needs, it’s hospitality. If someone needs help getting around, bathing, grooming themselves, or anything at all, we’re here to provide the assistance they need. After all, that’s the most important part of Solterra Chandler assisted living—living.
Parents Whose Memory Might Be Troubling Them
Physical ailments are one thing, but mental ones are another. Memory care is a complicated kind of therapy, requiring a detailed understanding of the individual’s life and history. If you have a parent who suffers from memory-related conditions, our Chandler assisted living community is also well equipped to help them. We offer comprehensive memory care, giving our residents a safe and comfortable environment where they can be attended to by our trained staff.
Through validation techniques and an understanding of our residents’ realities, our staff is able to meet them where they are and give them a space that is familiar and comforting. With a number of available activities specially created for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, they can also stay active and engaged in their daily lives. Whatever their needs may be, we’re well-equipped to help your loved one live their best life.
Staying Together, No Matter What
The trouble with having parents with different needs is knowing where they can best thrive. There may be an option that would be ideal for one of them while at the same time being wholly unsuited to the other. That’s where Solterra can make a difference. Our residential communities are tightly interwoven, allowing your parents to both have of their needs met while still living close together. Whether one parent needs additional care or both simply need different degrees of care, they never have to worry about being apart.
