Another wonderful AltaGolden review that was removed by Yelp.
AltaGolden's "Family" has been a God Send to myself and my siblings, but
mostly my father. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, in 2013
with the begining stages of dementia . My frustration was, I needed a
place for my Dad, that had programs designed to help him with his short
term memory and keep him engaged. I tried other Elderly "Day Cares",
but they were noisy, crowded and the staff did nothing to help him with
his memory nor assist him in activities.
Alta Golden Memory
Center is staffed with people who greet him with a smile and hug every
time we arrive. They assist him with puzzles, games, exercises, music,
art projects and even for a while helped him remember how to use a cell
phone, all in a quiet relaxed atmosphere. He feels safe here.
also use their in home care several times a week. This service has been
invaluable for me as I also care for my own home and family. For my
father, it allows him to remain "independent" in his own home. He has
the same two care givers, whom he adores and looks forward to their
"visits". They work with him on word games, prepare his dinner, clean
up, encourage him to take walks, listen to music together, and even do
an occasional load of laundry. If there is ever a question on what
needs to be done they contact me. I have tried other in home services,
but the care givers sat and watched TV and snacked on my father's food.
Never engaging him or stimulating his mind.
If you are looking
for a welcoming, safe and stimulating center and/or in-home care for
your loved one with any type of memory disorder, this is the place. You
won't be sorry, you'll be as grateful as I am.
