Joe’s family was becoming concerned as they began uncovering evidence that their widowed father’s memory was fading while he sat alone in an empty house. Bills weren’t being paid, and dust was accumulating despite claims that he’d just cleaned. When conversations went longer than five minutes, Joe forgot what he was talking about. He had dementia.
For a short time, Joe’s children moved in with him, but it took an unbearable toll on the family to care for him. Likewise, a conversation about moving into the children’s house would lead to Joe’s violent outbursts and perpetual confusion.
The family consulted with Concierge Care Advisors on options for memory care facilities, and we found them a perfect community closeby and within their budget. Most importantly, the community had a rooftop garden, where Joe would be able to tend to his flowers—something that grounded him as he and his wife grew them together years ago.
With this in mind, we managed to identify three different senior communities in Kirkland that best matched her criteria. After looking them over, we arranged for a personalized tour of each one. As we toured them with her, the woman’s mother was given the opportunity to speak with the staff and residents to learn personal insights of the homes.
In the end, she chose an adult family home in Kirkland as the perfect home for her mother. She even remarked that she was impressed with the level of care provided at their center, as well as its overall cleanliness and affordability. We’re proud to have helped her and her mother, and we look forward to helping many more seniors find their perfect match.
No matter what your elders’ situation, no matter what chronic health conditions they may have, we will assess the needs and concerns of all families to make sure that they find the senior living community that’s right for them.
