Frequently Asked Questions
Can I afford to provide the level of care that my loved one needs?
We do recognize that caring for your loved one with Alzheimer's or related dementias is a financial investment. We offer several financial vehicles to suit your needs including our Lifetime Fixed Pricing Program. For more information on our financial programs, please contact the Avenir Community nearest you to discuss.
As a caregiver, I feel I need some help. Where do I turn?
If you are a child or spouse of an aging or ill loved one guilt or fear may prevent you from getting help. Our admission teams will provide you with literature support, community support programs and information about our services including respite and day stay to help you get the support you need.
Is your team fully licensed and trained in memory care?
Yes, we only hire the most qualified people to lead each community. We select members of our care team with dementia experience, character, and competency. We guarantee a loving professional care team will encircle your loved one night and day.
Why is the layout of the building so important?
Loss of memory leads to forgetfulness about normal, daily activities. Becoming increasingly forgetful often leads to getting lost and losing their way. Getting lost leads to loss of dignity which can cause agitation and depression. The flow and consistency of your loved one's new environment was designed with these facts in mind. Avenir Communities provide immaculate functionality for anyone dealing with memory loss.
