Deciding whether it’s time for memory care for your loved one is a significant and emotional decision. At Quail Park of Visalia, we understand the complexities involved in this transition and are here to provide guidance and support. As you contemplate the next steps, here are 12 essential questions to ask to determine if memory care in Visalia is the right choice for your loved one.

1. Is your loved one safe at home?

Safety is paramount. If your loved one is wandering, forgetting to turn off appliances, or showing signs of self-neglect, it may be time to consider a secure community. Our secure environment ensures your loved one is safe and well-cared for. At Quail Park Memory Care Residences of Visalia, we provide a safe, structured environment with 24/7 supervision to prevent accidents and wandering.

2. Are they receiving adequate nutrition?

Malnutrition can be a significant concern for individuals with memory loss. If your loved one is forgetting to eat or not preparing balanced meals, our chef-prepared Mindful Nourishment program ensures they receive the nutrition they need. Proper nutrition is vital for maintaining health and cognitive function, and our culinary team is dedicated to providing delicious, nutritious meals tailored to each resident’s needs.

3. Is personal hygiene becoming an issue?

Challenges with bathing, dressing, and grooming can indicate the need for additional support. Our professional care team at Quail Park is trained to assist with daily living activities while preserving your loved one’s dignity. Maintaining personal hygiene is crucial for overall health and well-being, and our compassionate staff is here to provide discreet and respectful assistance.

4. Are medications being managed properly?

Proper medication management is crucial for health and safety. If your loved one is forgetting doses or taking incorrect amounts, our licensed nurses and medication technicians provide precise monitoring and assistance. Ensuring the correct medication regimen can prevent adverse health events and promote stability in managing chronic conditions.

5. Are there increasing behavioral changes?

Changes such as aggression, anxiety, or depression can be distressing. Our Tribute™ program offers personalized care designed to manage and alleviate these symptoms through specialized activities and therapies. Understanding and addressing behavioral changes is essential for improving quality of life and reducing stress for both the individual and their caregivers

6. Is there a decline in social engagement?

Isolation can accelerate cognitive decline. At Quail Park of Visalia, our vibrant social calendar, including engaging activities and events, promotes social interaction and mental stimulation. Social engagement helps to maintain cognitive function and provides a sense of community and belonging for our residents.

7. Are they having difficulty with household tasks?

If managing the household becomes overwhelming, it may be time for a more supportive environment. Our residents enjoy a worry-free lifestyle with access to all the comforts of home in a beautifully designed, lodge-like setting. By alleviating the burden of household chores, your loved one can focus on enjoying daily activities and pursuing hobbies and interests.

8. Is caregiving becoming too challenging?

Caregiver burnout is a real and pressing issue. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, our respite care services provide the break you need while ensuring your loved one is in capable hands. Taking care of yourself is essential to provide the best care possible, and our respite services offer peace of mind and a chance to recharge.

9. Are there signs of increased confusion or memory loss?

Progressive memory loss requires specialized care. Our innovative iN2L™ program and sensory stimulation activities are designed to enhance cognitive function and provide meaningful engagement. Recognizing the signs of memory loss early and seeking appropriate care can slow the progression and improve the quality of life for your loved one.

10. Is there a need for specialized medical care?

Access to medical care is crucial for those with memory-related conditions. Our community is conveniently located on Kaweah Health Care’s west campus, offering easy access to medical services. Having medical care readily available ensures that any health concerns are promptly addressed, providing reassurance for families and residents alike.

11. Are they expressing a desire for more independence?

Even those with memory loss value their independence. Our community provides just the right amount of support, allowing residents to engage in activities and enjoy their day with confidence. Balancing independence with support fosters a sense of autonomy and self-worth, crucial for mental and emotional well-being.
