Lakewood Memory Care, Lakewood CO
At the Lakewood Memory Care community in Lakewood, Colorado, older adults can enjoy premium memory support services in one of the city's most highly-rated dementia care residences. The community's staff use a holistic approach to care, helping residents through their dementia journey with patience and understanding.
Each incoming resident work one-on-one with a care advisor to discuss their needs and concerns. Their family members are welcome to voice their thoughts and observations to the care advisor, helping the community create an enhanced care routine for the resident.
The community's caring staff are the true highlight of their senior living services, putting forth a tireless effort to treat each member of the memory care program with compassion and empathy. The caregivers encourage residents to engage with other residents and participate in community activities, making their dementia journey more fulfilling. Residents are invited to foster their artistic expression at one of the community's arts and crafts events, or they may enjoy a meal with their peers in the community's dining room.
Transitioning from in-home care to a memory care community can be challenging for people with Alzheimer's disease, and Lakewood's caregivers take this to heart. The Alzheimer's care staff work day and night to make the community's memory care program a nurturing place for residents, giving them a safe place to receive memory support services during their retirement.
Like an assisted living facility or independent living community, Lakewood Memory Care is limited in the types of enhanced care they may provide. The facility is not licensed to provide health care services or skilled nursing care, like the other Milestone retirement communities located throughout the United States. As a memory care facility, Lakewood's supportive services are limited to residential care for memory loss, as the community is not equipped to provide ongoing health care services for its residents.
The Lakewood Memory Care facility is known for its long-term care programs, but short-term services - like respite care - are available by request. Respite care residents are welcome to the same tailored memory loss treatments and senior living amenities as long-term community members, providing an outstanding environment for them to receive care while their primary caregiver is away.

The caring staff are happy to answer questions about the community, and guests are welcome to enjoy a complimentary lunch in the dining room during their tour. Tours happen regularly, and are free to interested families.
