Jasper, GA, also known as The First Mountain City, is a picturesque southern town. The hospitality around here goes above and beyond, especially when caring for folks living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Families choose communities like The Lodge at Stephens Lake to provide comforting memory care for their loved ones.
The Georgia Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Dementia Report revealed, approximately 80 percent of Georgians who perceived a memory loss condition never discussed the issue with their doctor. Let’s change that stigma and discuss how memory care can help families find relief.
What is memory care?
As we age, a helping hand can make all the difference. To continue living independently, folks might only need assistance with a few daily tasks. Memory care is assisted living, with the added benefits of specialized memory loss associates and activities that focus on engaging the brain.
The Lodge at Stephens Lake opens in 2022, and it’s where your loved one can benefit from experiencing independence while receiving assistance with daily living activities like bathing, dressing, and eating. Our services also include medication management and administration.
To hone their skills, we provide on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapy. To keep families informed, we compassionately monitor behaviors and their changes over time.
Our nursing oversight is available 24/7, and every resident has access to an emergency call system to alert associates.
The advantage of The Lodge at Stephens Lake is the comfort of luxurious living:
- Adapted chef-inspired meals for brain health
- Private studio apartments
- Housekeeping, laundry, and flat linen services
- Community provided transportation
- Secure outdoor courtyard
- Comforting community cat and dog
What activities benefit those in memory care?
It is possible to slow the memory loss process by exercising the brain. Despite the buildup of plaques and tangles, continued learning and physical exercise can help create new neural pathways around the damaged sections of the brain. To stimulate this process, your loved one can join in on:
- Strengthening and stretching in the fitness center
- Music, art, and dance
- Strategic games and puzzles
- Scenic drives and supervised outings
- Volunteer opportunities
- Social events and parties
A significant benefit is the opportunity for socialization. Our associates strive to create a family-like atmosphere, but we can’t wait to see when the residents create those bonds with each other. It turns out cracking jokes and gossiping is good for the brain.
Is it time for memory care?
It’s impossible to predict the future, but The Lodge at Stephens Lake is designed to be an environment where people can age in place. Our upscale community is one of the only places in north Georgia providing independent living, assisted living, and memory care.
If your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or another form of dementia, ask yourself:
- Am I their primary caretaker?
- Am I strong enough to continue providing care?
- Are caretaking duties interfering with my well-being?
- Would I like for them to get proper nutrition and exercise?
- Could my loved one benefit from daily social opportunities and activities?
- Do I want us to get back to being a family again?
If you’re concerned your mom or dad isn’t finding purpose in life or withdrawing from the events they used to enjoy, memory care may be the answer. Please call the knowledgeable associates at The Lodge at Stephens Lake to find out how we can help you.
