If you are a senior who is beginning to experience memory impairment, dementia, or Alzheimer’s, or the loved one of a senior experiencing those problems, you may be facing some difficult choices.

On the one hand, significant memory impairment may not only make it impossible for a senior to live independently but may also mean that a senior is not able to get sufficient supervision living with relatives, making an assisted living facility a necessity.

On the other hand, with memory impairment generally comes other signs of dementia, making loved ones legitimately concerned that a senior with dementia may be unable to assess, evaluate, and report on their living conditions.  It can make it very scary for seniors contemplating a move to a memory care facility and for their family members.

At Chelsea Senior Living in Pennsylvania, we understand how frightening dementia can be for seniors and for their loved ones.  We also understand what a significant trust it is for families to place their senior family members in an assisted living facility.

We have honored that trust by creating The Country Cottage, a dedicated solution for handling memory care while preserving dignity.  The Country Cottage concept goes beyond traditional assisted living to provide the extra care needed by those with memory impairment.

The building, while secure to reduce the risk of wandering or unintentional dangers, is homelike and welcoming, and offers residents the ability to live in private apartments or with a roommate.  The Staff is available for residents at all hours of the day, in order to ensure the physical and mental well-being of the residents, with personalized care that is tailored to each resident’s individual needs.
