Do you allow for outside care (visiting) to be arranged in the Charleston area? Who coordinates outside care for Ashley Gardens?
Yes, outside care is welcomed as part of Ashley Gardens’ memory care services.
Coordination of care is a joint effort. The resident’s family member or Power of Attorney generally secures outside care services, working directly with the care provider to determine the scope, services, care plan, etc. and notifies our memory care community of the arrangement.
Then, our staff works directly with the outside care provider to coordinate the care of your loved one within the community in Charleston, scheduling appropriately and to communicate as needed for your loved one’s benefit and continuity of care. Communication – between Ashley Gardens’ memory care staff, the outside service, and you – is key to successful collaboration.
