At Ginger Cove, we often handle questions about our efforts to care for residents in our premier memory care community in Annapolis, MD. We understand from our own experience just how many questions you have while looking for a new home offering quality memory support.
To get a sense of what to look for when seeking out a memory care community, consider using the following checklist of key questions to consider.
You’ll want a community that feels comfortable and inviting for your loved one both in its physical atmosphere and from the staff who work there. Look for a well-staffed community that is able to provide as much personalized attention as possible, so they can learn more about each resident’s unique life story.
It’s important to have a community that is designed for those with memory needs. Look for color and design cue’s, a secured environment and unique space for events, activities and areas to visit with family.
On-going training under the leadership of those who have specialized training in memory support is critical when providing this highly-specialized care.
Ginger Cove opened The Heritage, a 67,100-square-foot building with an expertly-designed environment for memory support. Located on the third floor of The Heritage, the memory care community is self-contained and secure. All resident rooms are private, furnished and feature a large safety-equipped en-suite bathroom.
We use a unique specialized evidence-based program at Ginger Cove, known as Legacy, to build on each resident’s strengths, personal interests and encourage cognitive function.
Consider memory care programs providing opportunities to meet and pursue both personal and shared interests and activities. Is there adequate space for parties, special events, and worship services?
Think about the ability for a community to quickly respond to an immediate medical need. Is there nursing staff available on a 24-7 basis and is pharmacy care available?
Ginger Cove’s memory care focuses on ways to increase each resident’s self-identity and self-esteem.
Does the community have staff available 24/7? Is there a physician available onsite? Is there additional care available such as skilled nursing or rehabilitation?
Our aim at Ginger Cove is to evoke interest, promote safety and minimize confusion and overstimulation while giving each resident a sense of purpose and joy.
Ginger Cove provides a holistic and person-centered approach to supporting residents’ memory care needs with the goal of maximizing their independence. Our staff works as a team with family members to come up with memory care support suited to each individual. Ginger Cove offers residents a purpose-filled life in a relaxing and comfortable home.
We do that by having a team of caregiving staff that is dedicated, credentialed, and specially-trained.
Each part of a memory care resident’s day at Ginger Cove, from their meals to the activities they pursue, is focused on enhancing each resident’s capabilities while providing joy and meaning. Residents can take part in planned activities or enjoy free time pursuing their interests.
