At Aegis of Kent, we know the behavioral changes and other effects that Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia can have on our residents. We also recognize the profound impact this diagnosis has on the individual’s spouse, children, siblings and life-long friends – all of whom feel left behind in the wake of this cruel disease. We understand the feelings of guilt, the moments of frustration, the array of care choices, and deep sadness this journey brings. Aegis of Kent will be your partner every step of the way.
Live in the Joys of the Present
Although your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, they can still find joy in the moment, comfort in friendships, and support in their peers. This decision is difficult. We are here to help answer your questions. Our community is memory care only; this is our focus and our strength. We are confident in caring for residents with dementia, whether newly diagnosed or in the later stages, and every step along the way. And we have repeatedly seen the wonderful positive changes and slowed progression that a secure and social community can have on our residents.
Part of the Family
When it comes to our staff, we have set high standards. Each care manager goes through extensive training above the industry standards to offer the best care and compassion to our residents. We use the latest innovations and positive tools, such as storytelling, music, laughter and touch to redirect and calm residents, instead of relying on medication. We never underestimate the power of a smile, holding a hand, or giving a hug.
Supporting You Through the Tough Days
With Aegis of Kent as the caregiver for your loved one, you are free to return to your role as spouse, child, or friend, and to live “in the moment” with your loved one. Our exemplary memory care program will restore your peace of mind every day that your loved one is well taken care of. And as your partner, support network, and shoulder to cry on, we will support you and your family through the changes ahead.
Aegis Living communities offer retirement living options that provide a gracious and comfortable lifestyle. We specialize in assisted living and memory care residences that ensure security and therapeutic support, and add amenities like fine dining, well-appointed common areas like libraries and flower gardens, and educational and entertaining social and recreational activities.
