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. This means closer oversight, more dedicated and personal one-on-one time with each resident.
• Fewer safety risks. Our 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 and alarmed doors. 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.
