Valeo™ Memory Care by Agewell Solvere Living

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

Above all, our programming is designed to bring joy to those living with memory-impairing 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

Music and art allow for self-expression and engagement, enriching the lives of those with memory-related conditions. Studies have shown that music can reduce agitation and improve behavioral issues commonly associated with dementia, while art can create a sense of accomplishment and purpose.

Beyond the health benefits, art and music are impactful ways to promote comfort and relieve stress. Create & Compose encourages residents of our Round Rock memory care community to reap these benefits by playing music, painting, or taking part in other creative outlets.

Legacy Kit

From photographs and mementos to objects that embody a person’s experiences, 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.

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

Travel Times

Individuals living with dementia often find joy, 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

Interacting with animals has been proven to lower stress levels, improve mood, and increase social opportunities. There’s also evidence that bonding with animals can lower rates of heart disease, anxiety, and depression. 

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

VITA!

Daily routines and structure can help decrease dementia symptoms, such as aggression, restlessness, and agitation. At The Monarch at Round Rock, VITA! builds on structure to enhance the physical and cognitive benefits of routines. 

Our wellness team uses VITA! to incorporate mental stimulation and physical activity 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 those living with memory-impairing conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. These communities provide a comfortable, low-stress environment with security features and design elements to promote safety and familiarity. 

Although memory care and assisted living both fall under the umbrella of senior living, they are not the same. Both offer assistance with daily tasks, but memory care communities focus solely on those living with cognitive impairments. 

In addition, team members of memory care communities are on-site 24/7 to ensure resident safety and wellness. They understand the balance of encouraging residents to stay as independent as possible while providing the support they need.

What Are the Benefits of Memory Care?

For families considering a dementia care community in Round Rock, Texas, it may be helpful to understand what can be gained from this type of care, such as:

  • Personalized care available 24/7
  • A secure setting for safety and peace of mind
  • Wellness opportunities that can help manage symptoms and slow the progression of dementia
  • Convenient access to various healthcare professionals
  • Improved diet and nutrition
  • Elimination of caregiving responsibilities so family members can return to their roles as son, daughter, spouse, etc.

When Is It Time to Consider Memory Care?

During the early stages of dementia, many individuals are able to maintain their current lifestyle and structure as symptoms are milder and have a lower impact on daily life. 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 in Round Rock, Texas, can provide the necessary care and attention.

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 can look different for every family. However, some circumstances can indicate that memory care may be the right next step: 

  1. A family member has received a mid to late-stage dementia diagnosis. 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 Round Rock, TX?

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

The Monarch at Round Rock features 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.
