In our last few episodes, Christy Turner and I have helped you understand if it’s time for memory care, how to find memory care, and just what is memory care.
Christy has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
In her article “Moving Your Parent Into Memory Care,” she starts of by saying “As a former memory care director (and a family member who’s had multiple experiences with memory care placement), I know plenty of insider info on what to expect when you’re moving your parent into memory care. “
In this episode, she shares these insider tips to help you make a successful move into memory care.
Christy is also a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,200 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
