MEMORY CARE NEIGHBORHOOD ENHANCES QUALITY OF LIFE

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, one in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease. As the size and proportion of this segment of the U.S. population increases, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s and other dementias will grow, too.   For families with a loved one suffering from memory loss, a key concern is finding a place that can deal with such a diagnosis and enhance the individual’s quality of life.

LIBERTY CARE PROVIDES INDEPENDENCE AND ASSISTANCE

Sometimes as we age, we may need a little help to accomplish activities of daily living (ADLs). These include dressing, bathing, taking medication and preparing meals. Liberty Ridge Senior Living Community addresses this need by offering assisted living care at its Lexington campus.


Assisted living provides residents who do not need daily medical attention an opportunity to receive care in a homelike setting. In Kentucky, an assisted living residence must undergo a certification process and be inspected regularly by state officials to ensure it complies with regulations for assisted living care. Liberty Ridge is one of only three certified facilities in Lexington.


Liberty Care is the special brand of assisted living care at Liberty Ridge. The most important aspect of Liberty Care is that it allows residents to maintain independence while also providing personalized assistance when needed. The Liberty Care team gives each resident individualized attention. Residents’ specific needs and preferences are kept in mind and adjusted as necessary. The team provides daily wellness checks and also monitors, reminds and assists residents as needed with such things as dressing, grooming, bi-weekly bathing, meals and program reminders. Assistance with self-administration of  medication is available as well.

In the assisted living section of Liberty Ridge, residents can choose between one- and two-bedroom apartments, a studio or a deluxe studio. Each has a kitchenette with a refrigerator-freezer and a microwave. The bathrooms have low-barrier walk-in showers. Every apartment has an emergency response system; all residents receive a personal pendant to summon help when needed. You can check Liberty Ridge’s Web site (www.libertyridge.com) to see the layout and photos of the apartments and common living areas, which include a patio with raised garden plots and living and dining rooms with fireplaces.


Amenities and services provided by Liberty Care include three restaurant-style meals each day, plus nutritious snacks; weekly housekeeping; daily trash removal; and a trained and caring staff on site 24/7. There are also laundry facilities for resident use. All utilities and extended basic cable service are included. Full-time pastor care is available as well as a weekly health maintenance clinic conducted by home health agencies. If a resident has a service desire or need not covered by these services, he or she is encouraged to discuss it with the community director.

To enhance your opportunities for learning and stimulation, Liberty Ridge offers a diverse and exciting life enrichment program with plenty of activities ranging from exercise to excursions to movies and games. Transportation to shopping, local attractions, restaurants and libraries are offered; individual transportation to doctor’s appointments can be arranged with advance notice for a nominal fee to defray the costs of vehicle operation and labor.


Liberty Ridge is a non-profit ministry of Eastland Church of God. Liberty Ridge’s goal is to offer hope to senior adults by providing quality housing and services in a caring Christian environment. The facility is open to people of all faiths. For more information, visit Liberty Ridge’s Web site or call (859) 543-9449 or toll free 1-800-264-0840.
