Memory Care at The Kensington Redondo Beach
Few things are more challenging than watching a loved one deal with memory loss as a result of Alzheimer’s or dementia. We find that the effects of memory loss typically reach far beyond your loved one, impacting the lives of family, friends and caregivers. However, there are still many, beautiful moments ahead for you and your loved one. Our goal is to help residents and family alike to treasure those moments and get the most from them, all the while providing a safe, enriching and peaceful home for your loved one.
Specialized Care for a Very Special Person – Your Loved One
Since Alzheimer’s and dementia affect every individual differently, we specialize in customized care that emphasizes independence and self-sufficiency as much as possible. While we’re always there, ready to assist as needed, we strive to ensure each resident has the ability to live as independently as their circumstances allow.
To aid that process, we offer on-site rehabilitation services aimed at fostering independent living. You can have the peace of mind and confidence of knowing your loved one is in capable, professional hands at all times.
The care we provide also extends to clinical services and an on-site Physician’s Office during business hours, as well as a full-time Registered Nurse who coordinates comprehensive nursing and medical care for each resident. Our staff of licensed nurses also provide Medication Administration 24 hours a day.
But the best therapy of all is keeping families close at hand. We encourage family and friends to visit as often as possible and to lean on us for support whenever necessary. We know that by sharing caregiving responsibility, families are freer to enjoy the pleasure of time spent together.
Two “Neighborhoods” for the Customized Levels of Memory Care
The best care is achieved when the resident’s degree of memory loss is taken into consideration and when a memory care program is geared toward the entire family. To achieve this, we offer two “neighborhoods” for our residents to call home.
Regardless of which neighborhood is the best fit for your loved one, both are cozy, intimate and secure, staffed by professionals trained to meet them where they are. We help residents and families find ways to enjoy the beauty of special times, even if only moments. We honor the past, savor the present and look toward making the times that lie ahead manageable and comfortable.
This is our neighborhood for early to middle stage Alzheimer’s and dementia care. It’s designed specifically for residents who are showing increasing signs of memory loss but still retain a large degree of independence. Our goal is to help residents remain engaged in activities that give meaning and purpose to their lives.
Your loved one may be experiencing increased anxiety, fear of getting lost, isolation, and even depression prior to transitioning to Assisted Living. They may be having difficulty with daily tasks without reminders, causing them to become frustrated and to lose confidence. They may also wander and become agitated in the late afternoon or early evening, as the sun goes down.
Connections provides a fully-secured environment to maximize safety, in an intimate, elegant yet comfortable living space that fosters calm and comfort. The neighborhood has porches, and patio and garden areas to enable residents to freely enjoy fresh air and sunshine. Here we offer wander management technology to manage their whereabouts while they move about freely.
In our neighborhood for middle to late stage Alzheimer’s and dementia, residents may be experiencing difficulty recognizing family and friends, organizing thoughts and managing the activities of daily living. They may require assistance to maintain appearance and good hygiene, as well as managing incontinence. Wandering and agitation may become more pronounced.
Residents in this neighborhood receive a higher level of assistance and care. Our goal is to maximize comfort, minimize agitation, and soothe compassionately. We also strive to offer residents opportunities to become involved in tailored activities in ways that are enriching and meaningful.
The Haven neighborhood provides cozy and intimate living spaces that enable residents to explore safely and freely. There’s lots of natural light and a fully secure outdoor terrace to create a cheerful environment.
The neighborhood features an adaptive design, including painted walls and doors, motion sensors, specially designed carpet and memory boxes, to help with recognition and minimize confusion. We also make sure the kitchen is filled with happy sounds and smells of home, such as bread baking, music, laughter, and soft voices to soothe and please the senses.
Four Floor Plans for You to Choose From
You and your loved one can select one of four luxury suite floor plans available in either neighborhood, that will work best for your loved one’s needs and preferences. You can select single or companion living, and pets are always welcome as members of The Kensington Family.
