Good Relationships for a Good Life
Think of what it would be like to feel you don’t fit in socially where you are, because you are struggling with everyday tasks. More and more, you are left out of social situations, you dine alone, and feel increasingly depressed and lonely. And that only makes everything feel harder.
Assisted living residents in the early stages of Alzheimer’s might not be ready for a secure memory care setting, but they do need extra support. And the resulting loneliness can both worsen their disease and significantly harm their overall health.
At Solera Senior Living, we know that a diagnosis of dementia doesn’t mean a person can’t have a full life. We choose to focus on a person’s abilities—creating a safe and stimulating environment that allows them to be truly present, to have a purpose and a place, and to accomplish things.
It’s the inspiration behind what we call THE CLUB.
