Memory Care

Memory Care

We generally associate age with the fragility of the physical body. But even the mind shows ageing with bouts of forgetfulness which will disrupt a person’s personality. These are the heartbreaking effects of Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are two of the common memory loss conditions included under the umbrella of memory care. This specialized care spans a spectrum of services depending upon the severity of symptoms exhibited by an individual. Memory Care requires more care and of a different nature than what is given as Assisted Care. While Dementia is age related Alzheimer’s is the worst form of Dementia where the patient loses his memory completely. Both Dementia and Alzheimer’s affect the elderly population only. Care for such patients needs lot of passion and compassion.

Why Gated Communities?

An estimated 6 out of 10 people with Alzheimer’s will wander and hence the communities are designed to minimize the risk of them just walking out. Gated communities have a secured courtyard that allows residents the opportunity to walk outside of garden without any risk of walking away.

Research has shown that seniors with Dementia and Alzheimer’s can become easily stressed and disoriented and care centres like ours are created to offer a relaxed setting. To create a more intimate setting for residents we are trying to design a neighborhood setting with apartments clustered around to share common areas. To assist in way finding many communities, place a memory box filled with mementos from the resident’s life outside each apartment. Some memory care providers design menus that address the lack of appetite and attention is placed on creating a contrast between the food color and the plate for better visual of the food.

Activities are specially designed around the residents past interest so that residents may reconnect with their memories. CovaiCare would be setting up its first Memory Care Centre by 2018-19.

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3It was very nice to see "வரலாறு காணாத” number of talented residents participating in the cultural programme held on Monday, 25th September 2017, as part of Navarathri celebrations in CovaiCare S3.  And surprisingly, many men also participated and surprised one and all with beautiful rendition of classical and movie (both Tamil and Hindi) songs.A big hand to all of them.

    Navarathri Utsav at CovaiCare S3The Bharathanatyam performance by Smt. Shara Sivithkumar on Thursday, the first day of Navarathri evenings this year, was in more than one sense, thoroughly enjoyable. The performance of the talented artist can be described in several words. Simply put, it was excellent!

    During our recent visits, we noticed a vibrant community willing to help and care and even share their experiences with a bondage to others that display their overall happiness. There is a great calmness and a sense of belonging among the residents. They feel proud to be in this beautiful place. The staff and the residents are always eager to render assistance and support to their fellow residents.

    Colonel, you have established a solid foundation for the S3 retirement community to live happily, peacefully, and thrive and prosper for years to come.

  • Mr.Varadarajan PV, Stm-19

    We are staying in this community from July 2006 and have been eating at the Retreat for most of the time and we never ever had any problem after eating the food. The Doctor who was interacting with each one of the 27 odd residents said that the place, food and atmosphere in the Retirement Community will take care of your health.

    We keep telling all our friends and relatives or even visitors to this community during our conversation that food served here is absolutely safe and good.

  • Mr.Nambi Kalakad (Resident)

    Nearly a week ago I had an emergency and prompt help arrived from the staff and I was lifted up and put into my bed. We could immediately get a full time attender as well as a wheel chair.I don't find enough words to express my gratitude to all involved. The family spirit is excellent if at all it needed to be brought to light every now and then!
  • Mr.Venkata Sukuntha (Resident)

    This is yet another incident when CovaiCare jump into action when someone/anyone suddenly needs urgent attention and help. This kind of support gives a lot of mental and psychological confidence not only to the senior residents, but also to their children who are in different corners of globe, that immediate help and attention is available. The care and concern of the co-residents which give a morale boost, also is greatly appreciated.
