When a loved one begins exhibiting signs of memory loss or receives a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, don’t try to bear all the emotional weight alone. Consider joining a support group for caregivers in the Houston area. Dedicated to being a resource for families, Proveer at Northgate in North Houston invites you to come and learn more about navigating the journey of finding care that fits your needs.
In addition to hosting a monthly support group and periodic seminars on memory loss, we provide cost-effective memory care where you and your loved one can experience peace and relief. To decide if memory care is right for you and your family, join us for a tour.
What is memory care?
According to the National Institute on Aging, people living with Alzheimer’s benefit from structure and engaging activities. A memory loss diagnosis does not mean a person must struggle alone. By creating personalized activities for our residents, we help them continue to live meaningful lives. Proveer at Northgate takes an innovative approach by providing signature programs:
- Green Thumb Gardener™
- My Moment™
- Experience Excursions
In addition to activities, our community provides your loved ones with the supportive care they need to continue living an independent lifestyle at their pace.
- 24/7 memory care-specialized associates
- Service plans for personalized care
- Activities of daily living assistance
- Medication management and administration
- Nutritious and brain-healthy meals three times a day with snacks and beverages
How should I prepare for a memory care tour?
Doing research is the best way to be prepared. These days, the search begins online with a phrase such as “memory care near me.” Research carefully to discover your options and make a list of specific services your loved one may need. If we do not offer a service you need, we can recommend reliable third-party care options that are available on-site at communities like Proveer at Northgate.
If possible, speak with your mom, dad, or loved one in question about the transition. The Mayo Clinic suggests, “When planning the move, be honest with the person and provide as much information as is appropriate. You might consider allowing the person to make some choices in the process.”
What questions should I ask on the dementia care community tour?
A pre-made list of questions is your best resource, and using it can be your chance to interview the community. While on a community tour, remain observant. Evaluate the cleanliness and setup of common areas and living spaces. Make a note of how the residents interact with each other and their caretakers. Remember to include questions specific to your loved one’s situation.
