A Holistic Approach to Memory Care
When a loved one is living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, you want them to have compassionate, expert support. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Artis Senior Living of Brick.
At our specialized Memory Care community in Ocean County, NJ, we create a secure, homelike setting that encourages residents to be as independent as possible. An open neighborhood design enables residents to move throughout the community safely, while the Town Center at the heart of our community is a place for them to gather and enjoy the many services and amenities we offer. Specially trained team members get to know each resident, their personal preferences and the life stories that make them who they are. The result is a nurturing, safe environment in which each person can flourish.
We have so many stories about how our personalized approach to dementia care enriches residents’ lives. Here’s one of our favorites.
A Success Story
My mother developed dementia a few years ago and I retired to take care of her. But over the past year, I’d seen my mother decline. She didn’t want to participate in outside activities. She didn’t want to do anything at home. She didn’t want to eat. I felt her quality of life wasn’t what it should be. So when I heard about Artis from a doctor, my husband and I went to check it out. It was lovely and the activities were fabulous. We decided it would be the best place for my mom.
My mother was hesitant at first. She didn’t want to be in a new place. But she’s been at Artis over a month now, and it’s like she’s a totally different person. She now loves to participate in all the activities, especially bingo and chair soccer. She’s eating and loves the food. She’s made some friends. She’s come alive. When we visit, she’ll say, “Oh, Christine, I need to go play bingo now, so I’ll see you next time.” Hearing her say that is heartwarming. She went from a woman who had lost all confidence in herself, always irritable, to a woman who now just wants to be around people and participate in activities.
My mother’s story is a success story. We’re so proud and grateful to Artis for what they’ve done for my mom. It really is the best place for her.
