These days there are a lot of memory care facilities opening in the Katy area. How do you determine which one is the best for you?
One new community I found has some different and interesting approaches to helping their residents. Often people with memory disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease exhibit random patterns of rest and activity. They may roam the halls at all hours of the night. Their sleep/wake cycle is disrupted often.
Research is showing that bright light during the day is a powerful way of entraining natural circadian rhythms or sleep/wake cycles. This has been show to reduce agitation and anxiety.
This small memory care community in Katy Texas ( 16 residents) is the first to use LED lighting to mimic natural light. There is also plenty of natural light coming in. In fact when you walk inside you will notice that the the community feels cheerful. it is light and bright. Walking in the front door you can easily see all the way to the back yard with 10,000 sq. feet of green space. Orchards and gardens, a walking path and a beautiful porch great the guests. I am told that mornings usually begin on the porch.
This community gets 5 stars from me!
