Do you allow for outside care (visiting) to be arranged in the West Columbia area? Who coordinates outside care for Colonial Gardens?
Yes. Outside care is welcomed as part of Colonial 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 West Columbia, schedule appropriately, and communicate as needed for your loved one’s benefit and continuity of care. Communication – between Colonial Gardens memory care staff, the outside service, and you – is key to successful collaboration.
