Identifying and Caring for Someone with Alzheimer’s

Is your loved one suffering from a slow decline in memory, thinking, and reasoning skills? Should you be concerned, or is this just a normal part of aging? Knowing what your loved one is going through, even if they have a difficult time expressing it, is important for you to help them age successfully. One way to do this is by being aware of any changes they may be experiencing.Alzheimers is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimers Association10 Early Signs and Symptoms of AlzheimersAccording to the Alzheimers Association there are 10 early signs that may help you become aware that your loved one may have Alzheimers or other dementia-related diagnosis https://www.alz.org/alzheimers-dementia/10_signsMemory loss that disrupts daily lifeChallenges in planning or solving problemsDifficulty completing familiar tasksConfusion with time or placeTrouble understanding visual images and spatial relationshipsNew problems with words in speaking or writingMisplacing things and losing the ability to retrace stepsDecreased or poor judgmentWithdrawal from work or social activitiesChanges in mood and personality.It is important to note that the Alzheimers Association also lists the typical age-related change with each of these signs, so as to not confuse these early signs with typical aging. Everyone has episodes of forgetfulness from time to time, but people with Alzheimers will display these symptoms ongoing, and will worsen over time.What should you do if you notice your loved one has some of these symptoms? Early detection is the key to creating a positive and proactive plan, and to rule out other possibilities that may be causing the cognitive decline. You may want to keep a journal, to record any changes with a timeline. It is also important to speak with your doctor if you have concerns. Although there is no cure for Alzheimers, treatment can help slow the progression of the disease and will improve the quality of life.Caring for someone with AlzheimersAs a person progresses through the stages of Alzheimers, they will need increasing support from those around them. If you have a loved one with Alzheimers, you may consider becoming their caregiver. This can be a very rewarding experience, but it can be difficult as well. To be a fulltime caregiver for someone with Alzheimers takes patience, dedication of time, and a positive attitude. Over time, this can cause stress and anxiety for a caregiver. Enlisting the help of Rhythms Home Care can help you and your loved one with peace of mind and enriching life experiences.The care required of family members can result in increased emotional stress and feelings of depression. Continued support for care partners is instrumental in treating Alzheimers disease holistically. Alzheimers Association. Alzheimers Association Report: 2020 Alzheimers disease facts and figures.

Christian Living Communities Honored with 2022 Best Senior Living Awards from U.S. News & World Report

We are thrilled to share that several CLC-Cappella communities have been honored by U.S. News & World Report with their inaugural Best Senior Living awards. The following communities were recognized:Holly CreekBest Independent Living and Best Assisted LivingClermont ParkBest Independent Living and Best Assisted LivingCappella of Pueblo WestBest Assisted LivingSomeren GlenBest Assisted LivingU.S. News awards the designation of Best Senior Living only to those communities that satisfy U.S. Newss objective statistical assessment of each senior living communitys performance from consumer satisfaction surveys administered between March 2021 and February 2022. These assessments reflect the viewpoints of more than 200,000 current residents and family members of residents living in thousands of senior living communities across the country.Best Senior Living ratings are based on U.S. Newss in-depth analysis of consumer-satisfaction data taken from the resident and family surveys organizations conducted with Activated Insights. U.S. News separately evaluated each location in independent living, assisted living and memory care. In each category, approximately 30 percent of participating locations achieved the distinction of being recognized among the Best.Until now, families have had limited information when comparing providers of independent living, assisted living, memory care or continuing care, said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. The Best Senior Living ratings fill this informational gap with comprehensive and transparent data to help older consumers and their families identify high-quality senior living communities that meet their needs and preferences.The common theme among residents is that CLC communities provide outstanding levels of care and support. Personal connections with residents, families and team members are essential as positive relationships can help reduce the social isolation and loneliness that can harm the health of older adults.We enjoy the intellectual stimulation of living with such an intelligent group of peopleuniversity professors, successful businesspeople, scientists, geologists, etc., says one resident at CLC community Holly Creek.A delicious dining experience, a robust activities calendar, and a friendly team can improve quality of life for residents. One resident shares that the food is excellent, and they do good activities with the clients. The staff is very friendly.

We appreciate the dedication of our team members and the strength, care and encouragement they provide to those they serve.

Mental Wellness for Seniors: Strategies for a Positive Mindset

As we gracefully age, nurturing mental wellness becomes increasingly vital, especially for our beloved seniors. The pursuit of a positive mindset is essential for a fulfilling and joyful life during this phase. In this blog post, we'll explore effective strategies that seniors can adopt to promote their mental well-being, allowing them to embrace each day with optimism and resilience.Strategies for a Positive Mindset:Seniors can significantly benefit from fostering social connections, whether through family bonds, friendships, or community engagement. Loneliness and isolation can be mitigated by participating in social activities and events. Encouraging mindful activities like meditation or gentle exercises can contribute not only to physical health but also mental clarity and emotional balance. Additionally, seniors can embark on a journey of continuous learning, exploring new hobbies or interests to stimulate their minds and instill a sense of accomplishment. A healthy lifestyle, encompassing nutritious meals, regular exercise, and sufficient hydration, forms another pillar of positive mental well-being. Establishing a daily routine, along with open communication channels, further enhances a senior's sense of control, purpose, and overall contentment. In combining these strategies, we empower our seniors to age gracefully with a positive and resilient mindset.
