Acuity Care and Dementia: Specialized Support at Redwood City

Acuity care in senior living is a specialized kind of support designed for older adults who need different levels of help.

This is all about understanding and meeting these needs precisely and compassionately.

At Kensington Place Redwood City, we pride ourselves on offering this specialized care, focusing particularly on individuals with dementia—a disease that requires different levels of care.

This article aims to give you insight into our approach to acuity care, showing you how we stand out in providing care for our guests who deal with the challenges of dementia.

Our promise is to love and care for your family as we do our own.

What is “acuity care” in senior living?

Acuity care refers to addressing the level of medical and personal support needed by seniors—varying from minimal assistance with daily tasks to comprehensive care for those with serious health concerns.

Adaptive care

Adaptive care is a flexible, responsive way of providing care that adapts to residents’ changing health statuses.

In the world of senior living, this means creating a nurturing environment where every individual’s needs are met with precision and empathy.

Whether it’s medication management, assistance with mobility, or providing round-the-clock care for more complex health issues, acuity care encompasses it all.

This approach ensures that seniors not only receive the care they need but are also supported in maintaining their independence and quality of life.

Acuity care at Kensington Place Redwood City

At Kensington Place Redwood City, we understand that each resident is unique.

Every guest we have has their own set of challenges and needs. This is especially true for those affected by dementia.

Every resident’s unique needs

Our approach to acuity care is designed to meet these diverse needs, offering personalized care plans that focus on promoting wellness and independence.

Our team is trained to provide not just medical support but also emotional and social assistance, adapting to the evolving needs of our residents.

Our team is specially trained with Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care methods. The Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) created by Teepa Snow is a strategy encompassing dementia care tips, training, and skills to better support your loved ones with dementia through all steps of their journey.

The caring effect of community

Fostering a sense of community and belonging is a high priority—ensuring that every resident feels valued and cared for.

Our commitment is to offer a safe, welcoming environment where our residents can thrive, making Kensington Place Redwood City not just a place to live but a place to call home.

Memory care and dementia care—What’s the difference?

In caring for seniors with cognitive impairments, two terms frequently come up: memory care and dementia care.

Though often used interchangeably, they cater to different needs.

Memory care

  • Memory care is a dedicated type of senior living focused on individuals with memory issues, often due to a form of dementia like Alzheimer’s
  • It provides a secure environment designed to prevent wandering, with activities tailored to stimulate memory and cognitive abilities

Dementia care

  • Dementia care encompasses a broader spectrum of cognitive care needs, not limited to memory loss
  • It includes support for all aspects of a person’s life affected by dementia, from assistance with daily activities to managing behavioral changes and medical care

At Kensington Place Redwood City, our acuity care approach tailors services to meet both sets of needs.

For those in memory care, we offer structured routines that provide comfort and familiarity, while our dementia care residents benefit from a more customized approach that addresses their specific challenges, ensuring they feel understood and supported at every stage.

The acuity level of care: A detailed look

The term “acuity level of care” refers to the intensity of medical and personal care an individual requires—it’s a fundamental concept in senior living and dementia care.

Some residents are self-sufficient, only occasionally needing assistance for minor needs. Others, particularly those with late-stage dementia challenges, require around-the-clock care.

Physical care aspects such as a need for a Hoyer lift or a two-person transfer are also encompassed in this care. With our high level of staffing and 24/7 licensed nursing on-site, we can handle all levels of care, including medication administration.

Assessing levels of care

At Kensington Place Redwood City, we assess each resident’s needs through a comprehensive evaluation process involving:

  • Medical professionals
  • The resident
  • Their family

This assessment is not a one-time event; we continuously monitor our residents’ conditions to adjust their care plans as their needs evolve.

This dynamic approach ensures that each resident receives the right level of support at the right time, promoting their health, dignity, and independence—without needing o move residences because their care needs have evolved.
