Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Rosewood Senior Living Community will soon open its doors to The Grove at Rosewood, the newest memory care residences in Bakersfield. There will be a sneak peek of the community and open house for invited guests on Sept. 27. This new addition to Rosewood will address a growing need in the city of Bakersfield and a health issue that’s rapidly rising in California and across the country.
More than 9,000 people in Kern County have Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, and those numbers are expected to rise to almost 21,000 by 2030. The number of Californians who suffer from a type of dementia is expected to rise to over a million by 2030, according to the Alzheimer’s Association Disease Facts and Figures.
“We are excited and proud to offer this innovative program and to share it with the community,” says Ellen Renner, executive director at Rosewood.
The new memory care residences include 18 private suites. A team of qualified caregivers will learn the history of each resident, and customize a program that focuses on sensory-stimulating and reminiscing activities along with exercise and wellness, music and the arts, and more.
“Residents affected by Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia will feel accepted, comfortable and safe at The Grove,” says Renner.
