The Key to looking for assisted living and memory care is that there is no assisted living or Memory care that is the same! When you go to tour different places you need to ask questions depending on your loved one's needs. Do you have nursing staff 24 hours a day? What happens if my love one falls? What happens if my loved one falls several times in one month? Do you do complete medication management? If you loved one is diabetic- Can you do the injections for my loved one? Are you able to do a one person transfer if my loved one is not able to do it on their own? Are you able to handle the care of my loved one if they are to go on Hospice? My loved one is showing signs of dementia and or becoming somewhat forgetful- How long before they will need to go to a memory care? Are you able to transport my loved one to and from meals, activities, and the restroom if they are not able to get themselves there? These are some questions that can be very important if you are looking for assisted living or memory care depending on your loved one's needs. It is hard to move once and even harder to move two times and also have to hire private duty care. Some people are very far from needing more help. We are not all inclusive because everyone has different needs and their needs change and we are here to change with those needs. Our service plan is very detailed and we staff according to what the needs of the residents are and this changes often. Our levels of care allow people to pay for what they need! Our 24 hour nursing also allows for complete medication management which can become very important. There are no CNA's touching medication or handing out pills. It can be your loved one doing it themselves to when they are not able to the Nurse does the reminder or complete medication management. We are here to keep your loved one's needs at the top and we know they change and we want to change with them! Bickford has a lot to offer and I want to know about your loved one and their needs. I am here to help and if Bickford is not right for you loved one I am here to help you figure out what is! Call Me today! Don't do this alone Jennifer Shadwick 217-597-1597
