TRUSSVILLE — Locally owned assisted living community Legacy Ridge at Trussville will soon be expanding its services to provide Alzheimer’s and/or dementia-related care to residents starting in 2023.
“We have officially broken ground on building a memory care section of our community,” Sales and Marketing Director of Legacy Ridge at Trussville, Abbey Fowler, said. “It is an honor for our team to soon be able to assist families living with Alzheimer’s or dementia and provide peace of mind for them.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, “6.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to nearly 13 million.” Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, “there are treatments that may change disease progression, and drug and non-drug options that may help treat symptoms. Understanding available options can help individuals living with the disease and their caregivers to cope with symptoms and improve quality of life.”
Legacy Ridge at Trussville will take a holistic and modern approach to care for those with cognitive impairments. Every part of the day, the staff will celebrate small victories and reflect on past accomplishments. In addition, residents will receive brain-healthy meals and will be encouraged to pick up new hobbies to enrich their lifestyles.
Legacy Ridge at Trussville has been open since 2009. The community’s address is 7868 Gadsden Hwy, Trussville, AL 35173. For more information, visit https://atlasseniorliving.com/legacy-ridge-trussville/.
