You are not alone. Alzheimer's and dementia in general affect millions in the United States, from the patients themselves to family and friends. Grand Junction, with its large population of seniors, has several memory loss care providers and facilities. Choosing the right home for your loved one can be difficult and strenuous. Many wonder when the proper time is to select or consider placement in a dementia care facility for their loved one.
If you are personally caring for a loved one with a memory loss diagnosis, remember that it's okay if you can't do it all alone. Caregiver burnout, as it is called, can greatly affect your own health and well being. If you are stretched to the point where you are not able to function and take care of your own needs, it may be time to consider a home such as The Vineyards Memory Care in Grand Junction, CO.
While the Vineyards is a privately run home with first class amenities, its uniqueness truly lies in that the ratio of caregivers to residents. This specifically allows for individualized dementia care and attention. Your loved one will be known and loved on intimate level that is not possible at larger facilities that treat a higher number of patients. You will not find a more comfortable environment or dedicated team for dementia and alzheimer's care on the Western Slope.
