Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Senior Living

At Signature Pointe, it’s our goal to provide senior living resources that ensure you’re making the best decision for your future. Check out the answers to the questions we hear most often at our senior living community.

When is the right time for my parents to move into a retirement community?

The best time to move to any retirement community is when residents are still active and in good health. Signature Pointe’s independent living in Dallas is the perfect choice for anyone who desires to continue the lifestyle they’ve come to love and also enjoy the reassurance of on-site care if needed. This exceptional lifestyle will offer your loved ones the time and opportunities to discover new talents and make new friends.

How can I help my parents transition to a retirement community?

AARP suggests an adult child ask his or her parents questions that might help start the conversation. You would not ask all these questions in one sitting, but use them as a guide for topics of conversation when the time is right.

A few examples: Is your home still appropriate for your needs? Are there stairs or security issues? Do you need help with household chores? Can you cook your favorite meals? Hear the doorbell ring? Do you feel comfortable driving? Would it be a great relief to have transportation available right at your door? Are your prescriptions current and are you taking your medications correctly? Have you seen the doctor lately? Do you get lonely, especially at mealtimes?

Can my parents decorate their residence?

Absolutely. Your parents are invited to make themselves at home by furnishing or decorating their residence as they choose.

What is offered with Assisted Living?

As the name suggests, Assisted Living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living, dressing, bathing, dining, medication management—while still providing every opportunity for maintaining the highest possible level of independence. At Signature Pointe, this is all delivered in an atmosphere of sophistication and hospitality. Services are tailored to match individual needs for maximum convenience and comfort.

What is memory care?

Memory care is specialized support for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. LCS Dallas offers memory care that gives residents a safe environment and engaging activities to help them find a higher sense of purpose.

What is the difference between memory care and assisted living?

Assisted living services are designed for seniors who are still independent, but they need support with daily tasks such as dressing, bathing and managing their medication. Memory care is specialized support for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Memory care residents have their health and wellness monitored by staff and activities are designed to help them connect their meaningful past to the present.

When does my loved one need memory care?

One of the most common signs that your loved one is in need of memory care is when living on their own isn’t safe. It’s common for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia to wander and struggle with taking care of themselves. If you think you’re loved one can no longer live at home safely, then it’s time to consider a memory care community.

What should I look for in a memory care community?

When you’re looking for a memory care community, one of the first things you should look for is how residents stay engaged. You want your loved one to have access to activities and support that helps them improve their quality of life. You’ll also want to ask about the safety features at the community. Emergency alert systems and secure open spaces for resident to explore.

Is my loved one better off living at home with dementia?

The answer to this question depends on your personal situation. As your loved one’s Alzheimer’s or dementia progresses, the amount of time and resources to give him/her the expert care they need will increase. This can cause stress for you and your family as time goes on. But at a memory care community, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your loved one is staying active and engaged while enjoying a high quality of life.
