- Knowing When It’s Time to Consider Moving to a Care Community Kim Hegwood 21:32
“I believe that a person who has early-stage dementia should move into assisted living, depending on their behaviors and what they’re struggling with, so that they can adapt to the environment and really start getting that stimulation to get the highest level of care and stimulation and nutrition so that they stay where they’re at. They don’t decline as fast. And we can’t guarantee that, but we’re giving them the best environment possible. It’s just like when you water a flower and you give it fertilizer, you’re helping it thrive. And it may still die because it’s 120 degrees out in the summertime, but you did the best you could.” Pam Ostrowski
