Navigating the Challenges of Dementia Care

If you’re currently struggling to care for a loved one with dementia, you’re not alone. According to AARP, “nearly 11.2 million Americans serve as unpaid caregivers for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, and 57 percent have been doing so for at least four years.”

If your parent or loved one is living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, you face unique challenges as a caregiver. One of the most difficult is probably learning how to navigate the behavioral and personality changes that result from cognitive decline. It can be a stressful time, and it’s okay to ask for help and support. At some point, the care you’re able to provide on your own may not be enough to keep your loved one secure and healthy. That’s why having a care plan is essential.

Where Do I Start?

Finding dementia care in the Sacramento metro area can feel like a huge task; sorting through search results, reading reviews, and making calls can be time-consuming. It’s smart to do your research, but wouldn’t it be nice if your search was shorter and the answers easier to find?

You want the best care possible for your loved one and need to feel confident in the choices you’re making on their behalf. Specialized memory care like what you’ll find in the Connections Program at Sterling Court at Roseville gives you and your loved one stability, freedom, and assurance again. There’s no need to search further.

How is the Connections Program different?

At Sterling Court at Roseville, our focus is on caring for your loved one with a research-based approach that has shown results. Seniors with dementia benefit from a specific type of environment, activities, and interactions. We’ve done the research to know how to give your loved one what they need to live well.

Pegasus Senior Living Health and Wellness Consultant Dr. Sandra Petersen, whose background in the memory care field spans over 30 years, inspired the novel approach of our Connections Program. It was her own experience recovering from a stroke that led to incorporating the concept of neuroplasticity into dementia care. Learn more about her remarkable story.
