Valeo™ Memory Care by Agewell Solvere Living

Valeo™ is part of our Salus™ by AgeWell Solvere Living philosophy dedicated to those living with memory-related conditions. Valeo™, Latin for “to thrive,” aligns with our holistic approach to wellness, and our signature memory care program at The Monarch at Cedar Park is built on that foundation. 

Above all, our programming is designed to bring joy to the lives of individuals with memory-related conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Every program is customized to each person’s strengths and provides opportunities to engage and pursue individual interests.

Create & Compose

Studies have found that art and music offer significant benefits to those living with memory-related conditions. For example, research has linked art and music-based programs with improved cognitive function. 

Beyond the health benefits, art and music are recognized ways to promote relaxation and comfort and relieve stress. Create & Compose encourages residents to take part in programs, including playing music and painting, that help them gain those benefits.

Legacy Kit

Our Legacy Kit program helps each resident and their family build a physical representation of the most important events and interests in a resident’s life, including photographs, mementos, and objects that embody a person’s experiences. 

Each item opens up new opportunities to share stories, revisit those memories, and pass them on to children and grandchildren to preserve your family member’s legacy.

Travel Times

Individuals living with dementia often find pleasure, connection, and engagement when they have new experiences with positive places. Travel Times facilitates that by giving residents the opportunity to travel to new or familiar, beloved places.

Creature Comforts

It’s been proven that interacting with animals can lower stress levels and provide a strong sense of enjoyment. There’s also evidence that bonding with animals can lower rates of heart disease, anxiety, and depression. 

Creature Comforts brings gentle animals, such as dogs and birds, into our memory care community, encouraging animal interactions in a safe, supportive setting.

VITA!

Routines help those living with dementia navigate their world in a predictable way and add a sense of order to their days. VITA! builds on that comfort and structure to enhance the physical and cognitive benefits of routines. 

Our wellness team uses VITA! to incorporate mental stimulation, like brain teasers, and physical activity, like exercise, into residents’ daily routines. We find that residents who regularly participate in VITA! experience a greater sense of calm throughout their day and are often more focused on positive self-care.

What is Memory Care?

Memory care communities are residential options offering specialized care and support for older adults living with memory-impairing conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. These communities are intentionally designed to provide a comfortable, low-stress environment with security features and design elements to promote safety and familiarity. In addition, team members are on-site 24/7 to ensure resident safety and wellness.

While memory care falls under the umbrella of senior living, it’s important to note that it is not the same as assisted living. While both offer assistance with daily tasks and activities, memory care focuses solely on those living with cognitive impairments. 

Team members at memory care communities are specially trained to manage symptoms associated with dementia and help residents maintain cognitive skills and a sense of self. They understand the balance of encouraging residents to stay as independent as possible while providing the support they need.

When Is It Time to Consider Memory Care?

During the early stages of dementia, symptoms are generally more mild, allowing individuals to be able to remain living independently. However, as dementia progresses and symptoms worsen, there will likely come a time when they can no longer live alone or need more constant support and attention. When that time comes, a memory care community can help.

Symptoms and cognitive changes associated with dementia don’t follow a set timeline, so it can be challenging to know when additional care is needed. As a result, the right time to transition a family member to a memory care community is different for each individual and family. However, there are circumstances that can indicate that memory care may be the right next step: 

  1. A family member has received a dementia diagnosis, particularly mid to late-stage dementia. Moving to a memory care community can offer more support when done earlier rather than waiting for symptoms to worsen.
  2. One or more family members are overwhelmed by caregiving responsibilities. Caring for a person with dementia is more than a full-time job, and not all families have the knowledge and time to provide 24-hour care.
  3. If you notice a decline in a parent or relative’s mental and physical health beyond normal age-related changes, or if you worry about their safety, it may be time to consider a memory care community.

What is the Cost of Memory
Care in Cedar Park, TX?

The cost of memory care can vary depending on the community, location, and care. However, due to the specialized support offered, many memory care communities feature all-inclusive pricing, so individuals and families don’t have hidden charges or “extras.”

When you choose The Monarch at Cedar Park for someone you love, there is a one-time community fee of $2,500, which covers the cost of admission paperwork, preparing the apartment for move-in, and helping to maintain community spaces such as dining rooms, outdoor areas, and apartments. From there, our specialized Valeo™ memory care services are all-inclusive and start at $6,920.
