What is Memory Care?
Abbington Senior Living recognizes the special needs of those living with various forms of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. Our staff has been trained in techniques that will help communicate with empathy and stimulate the memories and senses. The environment is designed to encourage an enriched life, supported with love and dignity.
Placing Eileen in a home was the most complicated decision our family has ever had to make. After a few weeks of being place in the facility, we came to the conclusion that we had placed her with compassionate, caring individuals. Did we make the right choice? Yes, we did. We miss Eileen so much (We have actually missed her the last five years due to her dementia.) She had always been a big part of our lives. We were so lucky to have found all of you! She grew to love all of you who took care of her. She may not have shown it, but she did love each and every one of you. You were all her family, too. Our family thanks all of you for helping her through all those endless days of attitude problems and struggles. Helping her take a bath, get dressed, eat, and just care for herself. We are so grateful for the welcoming touch of the hugs, giving her a smile, and extra cookie, just letting her know you care. Thank you, Sarah, for being there for her in her last moments. We did not want her to be alone. This was a struggle for our family to let her go. I know she is happy again. Getting to see her daughter, Jolene, and husband, Ren. We love and appreciate all of you. Your kindness has not gone unnoticed. I will miss my calls each day checking on her, and talking to all of you. You all put sunshine into her life. Your thoughtfulness will long be remembered. Thank you for your strength and support given to our family. Love to all of you extraordinary women!!
