“Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia impact far more than the person with the disease,” said Aaron Hargett, executive director of Baptist Retirement Community. “There may be more than six million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s disease, but there are tens of millions of family members and caregivers who are also greatly feeling the effects.
As a continuing care community, Baptist Retirement Community offers memory care residences for varying levels of memory impairment. The Crest is a state-of-the-art approach specifically designed for people living with high-functioning memory disorders, while Sagecrest Alzheimer’s Care Center offers a calm, resident-centered approach to memory care for the elderly and the care dementia in a more traditional setting.
“That’s why we go beyond caring for residents with memory loss and dementia. We also educate and advocate for the community, partner with organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association, and offer support groups for family members to help them through a difficult time.
Baptist Retirement Community also offers a monthly support group for family members of people with dementia and memory loss.
