Memory Care Albuquerque - A Holistic Approach to Memory Care
MorningStar of Albuquerque’s Lavender Sky defines our philosophy and approach to memory care and guides the way we choose to thoughtfully enter, embrace and explore the world of dementia. From the moment families entrust their loved ones to our care, we learn all we can about the individual, including personal preferences, talents and history so we can create a care plan that calms or stimulates as a situation requires.
Our memory care also includes helping families to better understand the disease and showing them more effective ways to interact with their loved ones. For a firsthand look at experienced memory care in Albuquerque, we invite you to set up a tour of our loving community.
I fell in love with my Great Aunt Hazel from the start. When she came to live with us one summer, we drove her down from Indiana to New Mexico. Aunt Hazel was a hoot using the CB to talk to truckers. When a waitress asked what state she was from, she quipped, “The State of Confusion.” That still brings a smile to my lips. Seniors have taught me to slow down and “smell the roses,” that life is a journey. The path is not always straight but God will get you where you need to be at the right time and place.
The first senior I loved was Grandpa Roman. In watching Mom care for him, I knew at a young age that nursing would be my chosen path. The passion to help others feel better continues, especially when it comes to seniors. I love making an impact on their lives, keeping them as independent as possible. Listening to their stories of what the world was like back when is a history lesson in itself. It’s so nice to work for a company that has strong values which translates into how they support staff.
