What measures does Ashley Gardens take to secure its memory care facility?
Although we often use the word “secure,” a better word is “safe.” Secured memory care communities have a number of features that help your loved one stay safe, including:
• Higher staff to resident ratios, which means closer oversight, more dedicated time with each resident, and more personal, one-on-one assistance with care
• Fewer safety risks; these communities are designed to accommodate the way residents with dementia and other age-related limitations think and act to prevent falls, burns, and other injuries, i.e., no stoves in personal suites and no stairs
• Secure, alarmed doors so that if your loved one tries to leave the facility without accompaniment, staff are notified and can join them
We aim to ensure our secure memory care community in Charleston is just as warm and inviting as independent and assisted living communities.
