According to the Center for Disease Control, around 6 million people in the United States have Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. By 2060, they predict that this number could triple. This makes it critically important that assisted living and memory care facilities are in place to deal with this growth.
The Rivers Care Unit is a live-in section of The Village at Sugar Land dedicated to residents with memory-related illnesses. In this unit, residents are encouraged to participate in activities designed to evoke positive emotions and coax out long-term memories. While this is happening, the unit’s trained staff is on hand to provide round-the-clock support and care as needed.
Regarding activities, residents get to choose which ones they participate in each day from a list of several different options. Some popular activities include crafts, exercise, outdoor experiences, and puzzles and games. Many residents also help prepare the food that is served in the dining rooms. Should a resident want to do an activity that is not offered in-house, The Village at Sugar Land staff is open to accepting requests.
The Rivers Care Unit offers two floor plans for its residents. The Private Suites, which have a bathroom, bedroom, and small living area, are ideal for residents who want a more independent experience. Meanwhile, the Shared Suites, which have an additional bedroom, are more suited for residents wanting human interaction and comfort.
“Our Rivers Care Unit takes a different approach to memory care,” said a spokesperson for the facility. “Inspired by the Montessori Method, we focus on what residents can do, not what they can’t do. Our goal is to provide them with a supportive environment where they’re involved, independent, and living life to its fullest.”
