What Makes The Peristyle at Beau West Different?

Security

Seniors with dementia are known to sometimes wander and become disoriented. Contrary to senior living residences that offer other levels of care, since we are an all-memory care community, we do not have any unsecured wings of our community. Consequently, your elderly loved one is always safe and never at risk of leaving the community unattended.

Diverse Medical Staff

Dementia and cognitive impairments are often medically complex, meaning diagnoses include physical, behavioral, and neurological components. Our trained care staff includes a Director of Health and Wellness, Activities Director, and around-the-clock nurses.

Tailored Care Plans

Because dementia manifests in different ways, we provide customized care plans tailored around your loved one’s needs. By considering input from physicians, families, specialists, and seniors themselves, we create holistic plans that take both needs and preferences into account.

Activities

We fill our residents’ day with a guided routine - a mix of social, sensory, mental, reflective, and light physical activities that don't overwhelm them, yet stimulate their brains.

Dining and Nutrition

We provide three meals a day plus snacks and beverages. However, we also work with registered dieticians and nutritionists to create a balanced and healthy diet for our residents.

Close to Medical Complexes

Centrally located in Mandeville, Louisiana, we are close to a number of outstanding medical complexes and hospitals, such as Ochsner, Rapid Urgent Care, Lakeview Regional Medical Center, and Northlake Behavioral Health. In emergencies and for regular doctor’s appointments, residents don't have to go far for treatment.

Alzheimer's Versus Dementia

Dementia is the name given to a group of brain disorders. Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia that results from proteins and fibers blocking nerve signals to the brain. Along with common problems that come with other kinds of dementia, such as memory loss and wandering, seniors with Alzheimer's are at risk for behavioral changes, depression, and violent outbursts. Once vibrant, friendly people can be mistrusting and act out of character.

Other forms of dementia include:

Alzheimer’s Disease
Vascular Dementia
Lewey Body
Frontotemporal Dementia
Mixed Dementia

When To Consider Memory Care

Transitioning an elderly loved one out of their home is always a difficult decision. It is even more complicated when they develop Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or other cognitive impairments. If your elderly loved one has begun experiencing memory loss, the signs could be subtle. Begin considering memory care if your elderly loved one express any of the following:

Their overall health is declining.
They suffer from frequent falls, incorrect medication, improper nutrition, and violent outburst.
Caretakers, including family and friends, struggle to keep up and feel exhausted.
Your loved one is more withdrawn or less social.
A doctor has diagnosed your loved one with a memory disorder like dementia or Alzheimer's.

It's important to get a specialist involved early. An impartial, professional third party helps families recognize signs and make informed, proactive decisions.
