Alzheimer’s retirement homes 

Ontario’s retirement homes give you the peace of mind, knowing your loved one is in a safe environment. For instance, if your family member is prone to wandering, supervising staff will ensure that he or she does not wander into dangerous areas. You may also find comfort in the number of people that will be around your loved one. As such, a resident’s day is often full of social interaction and mental stimulation!

There are plenty of care options available throughout Ontario, as Alzheimer’s research continues to meaningfully develop treatment methods of and care for this disease. Retirement homes now have excellent means of dealing with Alzheimer’s, and Ontario’s Alzheimer’s homes apply many of the most innovative care strategies. For example, music therapy has worked extremely well in many cases. This form of treatment involves merely playing a song and seeing how the patient reacts. In some instances, those who have refused to talk suddenly begin telling stories. Music, along with other therapies, can be very powerful treatment.

These fresh therapies may not be available everywhere but you will find them in private or specialized Alzheimer’s homes in Ontario (listed below). You will also notice that private retirement homes provide certified on-site support at all hours of the day and night. Look closely through our list of retirement homes below to learn what level of Alzheimer's care each home provides.

Kinds Of Alzheimer’s Treatment In Ontario

Home care agencies in some Ontario communities can be equipped to help Alzheimer’s sufferers. For families dealing with Alzheimer’s, the challenge can be overwhelming. You can contact your nearest Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to find out what support they offer for Alzheimer’s. This can be only a stopgap during the early to middle stages of the disease; home care providers may offer some basic memory care services, although they may be limited in their ability to help. In later stages of the disease, when degeneration has run its course, hospitalization may be the only option for families. In the time in between, the best option is to seek out specialised memory care help in a seniors care home setting. There is always the hope that research can find a solution to alleviate the effects of the disease. 

Memory care provided in a retirement residence will apply the latest research and interventions and is your best hope for delaying progress of the disease and alleviating the suffering related to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Alzheimer’s research in Ontario

Ontario contains a plethora of Alzheimer’s organizations. In fact, most of its large cities, like Ottawa, have their own Alzheimer’s societies. And, because of the ubiquity of universities in Ontario, this province has numerous Alzheimer’s academic research programs, like the Murry Alzheimer Research and Education Program at the University of Waterloo. Ontario's size also grants it lifestyle diversity. You can choose to live in a quiet picturesque city or town or one of many large cities. While Alzheimer’s patients usually spend most time at their care homes, many towns and cities in Ontario offer wonderful places for supervised outings.
