Alzheimer’s Care

Exceptional Alzheimer’s Care

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

Experience a memory care community that feels like home surrounded by a team of healthcare professionals who love and care for residents like their own families.

Care Options for Your Loved One with Alzheimer’s

Life is composed of memories; memories of friends, family, holidays and special occasions, and obstacles to overcome. So when someone we love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, it can be overwhelming. An Alzheimer’s diagnosis is life-altering for everyone involved – not just your diagnosed loved one.

At The Kensington Reston, we have a deep appreciation for this experience. It is from a place of personal experience, empathy, and love that we have created a genuinely exceptional Alzheimer’s care facility. 

A community that feels like home, but provides state-of-the-art memory care. 

Alzheimer’s FAQ

Depending on where you are in your Alzheimer’s care journey, you’re likely to have many questions. Let’s start with a few basic questions.

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes difficulty with memory, thinking, and sometimes behavior. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60 percent to 80 percent of all cases. As a progressive disease, with symptoms worsening over time, Alzheimer’s has no cure. 

However, Alzheimer’s care communities, like The Kensington Reston, can improve the quality of life for your loved one. 

Whether suffering from early-, middle-, or advanced-stage Alzheimer’s disease, The Kensington Reston provides the right specialized treatment, tools, environment, and compassion to give each resident the individualized support they need.

What are the stages of Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease typically progresses slowly in three general stages — mild (early stage), moderate (middle-stage), and severe (late-stage). Since Alzheimer’s affects people in different ways, the timing and severity of dementia symptoms vary as each person progresses through the stages of Alzheimer’s differently.

What are the leading causes of Alzheimer’s?

While the exact causes of Alzheimer’s disease aren’t fully understood, scientists believe that for most people, Alzheimer’s disease is a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect the brain over time.

Less than 1 percent of the time, Alzheimer’s is caused by specific genetic changes that virtually guarantee a person will develop the disease. These rare occurrences usually result in disease onset in middle age.

The Kensington Reston and You – Partners in Providing Memory Care for Your Loved One

Specialized Memory Care Communities

We believe that each resident deserves to live in a community that is custom suited to their individual degree of memory loss. To ensure that our residents receive the most beneficial and appropriate care for their personal circumstances, we distinguish our community and care into two different “neighborhoods.”

The Connections Neighborhood

Connections is designed for residents who are experiencing early-to-middle stages of Alzheimer’s and provides an intimate and comfortable environment. As such, the neighborhood cares for those who are showing increasing signs of memory loss.

  • Anxiety
  • Fear of getting lost
  • Isolation 
  • Depression
  • Decreased confidence
  • Difficulty completing everyday tasks without reminders
  • Agitation and confusion in the later afternoon/early evening (“sun-downing”)

In Connections, we strive to help residents to engage with interactions and socialization every day independently. Our daily programming guides them to find purpose and meaning every day. We stay attuned to our residents’ maximum cognitive abilities and recall to make the most of their strengths, supporting them and their families. 

We focus on stimulating the mind in these early stages through brain fitness and memory body movements.

  • Structure and routine for each day
  • Fully secured
  • Comfortable home-like spaces, filled with sounds and smells found in our homes such as laughter, music, pets, and baking
  • Areas for fresh air and sunshine
  • Pets welcome
  • Resources to monitor whereabouts

The Haven Neighborhood

Designed for those residents showing more advanced signs of memory loss, Haven provides peace and security for those with middle-to-late stages of Alzheimer’s. 

  • Difficulty identifying family and friends
  • Difficulty managing daily activities
  • Difficulty maintaining good hygiene
  • Agitation and confusion in the later afternoon/early evening (“sun-downing”)

Since these individuals require more assistance and a higher level of care, we strive to create a safe and soothing space with minimal agitation and an abundance of compassion. 

  • Structure and routine for each day
  • Fully secured
  • Resources to monitor whereabouts
  • Comfortable home-like spaces, filled with sounds and smells found in our homes such as laughter, music, pets, and baking
  • Pets welcome
  • Lots of natural light and areas for fresh air
  • Adaptive design features (to help with recognition)
