Earlier this month, our own Shona Alexander, Nurse Practitioner and Director of Clinical & Home Care Services at Park Springs, was interviewed by Lori Johnston for an in-depth article that appeared on the national website www.AgingCare.com: Tracking Alzheimer’s or Dementia in Senior Living Communities.

In this article, AgingCare.com, a website “connecting people for elderly parents,” focuses on the support and advice adult children may expect from the staff at assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in assessing their parents’ well-being.

“Don’t hesitate to ask questions about your parent or to discuss any changes you see or hear in their behavior, small or large,” recommends the article. “Discuss any questions or concerns you have.”

Shona notes: “I always think it is so important (to communicate). The phone calls that we get from the daughters and sons who are not here, they say that they are hearing things over the telephone that perhaps don’t sound too good.” Then, if the nursing staff notices a change in a resident’s behavior, or if family members express concern, the staff will evaluate them, which may require lab tests.

Unsurpassed in Atlanta, senior care at Park Springs is comprehensive. Our community is committed to overall wellness, featuring specialized programs, services, amenities and a family of staff – all working together to provide a consistent personalized plan for each Member. Best of all, like every other aspect of life here, our health care services are designed for convenience and choice to keep you in control of your lifestyle.
