MEMORY CARE

Care

At CelesteCare Llano, we are currently converting a portion of our building to become an officially licensed Alzheimer’s care facility, where we will provide the finest level of services for our Memory Care residents.

Only the most advanced facilities in Texas earn the certification to provide Alzheimer’s or related dementia care. This elite designation is based on significantly higher standards in a range of areas: increased staff training requirements, elevated criteria regarding activity programming, higher educational requirements for the management staff, and additional facility safety systems to maintain a secure living environment.

Assessment

The qualified staff members at CelesteCare work closely with families to assess our potential residents. We carefully review medical records and conduct a thorough personal assessment to determine the optimal level of assistance and care needed. We encourage family member participation to help us gain a complete understanding of their loved ones’ current needs and habits.

Once residents join the CelesteCare family, they are re-evaluated within 30 days of admission to confirm the care-level decision. After that, assessments are repeated every 6 months or whenever a change in health is detected.

Care Levels

CelesteCare uses three levels of care based on each resident’s individual needs.

Level One:  These residents are independent but require assistance with medications and minimal support with the activities of daily living.

Level Two: These residents require medication assistance and minimal-to-moderate support with the activities of daily living, as well as occasional interventions for certain behaviors.

Level Three: These residents require assistance with medications and support for the majority of daily activities, with frequent interventions for certain behaviors.

Level Four: These residents require assistance with medications and maximum support with themajority of the activities of daily living as well as frequent interventions for certain behaviors.

Home Health & Hospice Care

If our memory care residents temporarily need more extensive support, we provide the options for them to contract with a third party to provide Home Health Care or Hospice Care on site. This eliminates the inconvenience of moving and allows seniors to remain in a comfortable, familiar surrounding near their own caregivers and friends. Contact the Executive Director for information about services in the area.

Respite & Adult Day Care (For Non-Residents)

CelesteCare offers Respite Care for seniors who are recovering from illness or injury and temporarily need additional support. An all-inclusive daily rate applies.

Adult Day Care is also offered at CelesteCare. This service is ideal for seniors who are showing signs of dementia and need a safe, loving environment during business hours while regular caregivers are at work. Advance reservations are required, and an all-inclusive, hourly rate applies.
