Reno Memory Care Allows Families a Fresh Start in the New Year
Stone Valley Memory Care Community Provides Residents With Person-Centered Care and Families With Peace of Mind
The new year is a great time for a fresh start. Many people make new year’s resolutions to improve their lives in meaningful ways. They plan to leave behind the old in 2019 and move forward into the new decade with a new outlook and an improved quality of life.
The same can be true for your loved one who needs memory care or assistance with the tasks of daily living. At Stone Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care in Reno, Nevada, the community and its staff are excited to provide new residents with a warm, welcoming community, Person-Centered Care, and an improved lifestyle in the new year. They’re also proud to provide residents’ families with complete peace of mind.
Get a fresh start with the Easy-Move Program
Perhaps you already know your loved one would thrive in a retirement community. But the stress and hassle of moving can cause even the most motivated among us to procrastinate when getting the process started. And it’s understandable; the transition to senior living can be difficult when faced with the normal physical and financial obstacles caused by aging and downsizing one’s home.
But thanks to the community’s Easy-Move Program, your loved one can move into their luxury retirement community sooner than you might think. Caring and dedicated staff are available to assist you and your loved one with real estate matters, financial services, hiring moving professionals, veteran assistance information, and more.
Enjoy healthy meals with the 24/7 dining program
If your loved one needs daily assistance or memory care, cooking for themselves may be difficult or even dangerous. And even if you are an amazing cook in your own right, making and delivering three meals a day to your loved one can easily become a prohibitively time-consuming task.
At Stone Valley, your loved one can enjoy gourmet food prepared from the freshest ingredients by the community’s Executive Chef and team of professionals—any time of the day or night. The team is trained and happy to accommodate residents with dietary needs due to various health restrictions, such as low gluten and sugar-free diets, and much more.
The daily menu incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which fosters brain health. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices.
And since the community staff can take on the responsibility of providing all of your loved one’s healthy meals, bringing your loved one some of their home-cooked favorites can once again become an enjoyable experience for both of you.
Feel complete peace of mind with Person-Centered Care
It can be difficult to turn your loved one’s care over to someone else, but Stone Valley gives families complete peace of mind with their customizable Person-Centered Care approach. The community’s caregivers focus on residents’ individual needs, while the Active Living Programs allow residents to live life to their fullest capability. Your loved one can receive the exact level of care that he or she needs with the community’s options for health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care.
And you’ll know your loved one is safe in the community’s comfortable apartments. Each apartment comes with safety pull-cords, and residents wear location-based pendants to provide an extra sense of security for families. The community’s grounds are also secured to provide your loved one with a safe place to enjoy the outdoors.
Gardening is a relaxing, productive activity that can help lower stress and support our mental health. But just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we have to wait until next year to enjoy gardening. Fall is the best time to plant perennial flower bulbs, which bloom year after year!
Check with your local nursery for recommendations on what to plant. There are a range of choices--daffodils, tulips, allium, and hyacinth are 4 of the hardiest perennials for all planting zones. When spring comes around, you can look for your budding flowers!
Food is a critical component of not only our health, but our overall happiness and well being. That’s why we place a large emphasis on the importance of healthy eating. The food we eat every day plays a huge role in our brain function, and that doesn’t change as we get older. In fact, it’s even more important!: ow.ly/FQ7O50KWcuY
