Memory Care FAQ
What is a memory care community?
A memory care community provides specialized care from a staff of well-trained senior care professionals for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Memory care communities offer a safe and secure environment catered to the personalized care of each resident to enhance his or her quality of life.
How long have your memory care living communities been in business?
Fox Trail Senior Living and Raydian Properties started operations in 2007 with our original memory care living communities. Since then, Memory Care Living® has grown into our current network of multiple unique and individual homes. We are currently planning for several new homes throughout the New Jersey area.
What makes your communities different from other care options?
As a pioneer in residential living for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related illnesses, our memory care living NJ communities offer several unique features that make us different from assisted living and skilled nursing facilities:
- Small, intimate community of no more than 16 residents
- Unparalleled care partner to resident ratio
- This allows our team to provide personalized care to each resident. Additionally, our residents are able to get used to seeing the same smiling faces each day.
- Upfront, bundled pricing
- There are no hidden or potentially unknown costs surrounding medication administration, levels of care, and other additions.
- Fox Trail Memory Care Living is licensed under the NJ Department of Health instead of the NJ Department of Community Affairs
- As the largest provider of residential dementia care in NJ, we are always striving to ensure that we are delivering the best quality experience for our residents, as well as the community at large.
Do the communities have private bedrooms?
Yes. All of our memory care living NJ communities are designed with individual bedrooms to provide senior residents with as much privacy as possible. Each room contains basic bedroom furniture, such as bed and dresser, as well as beddings and linens. Families are encouraged to also add familiar items from home.
Should I put a TV in my loved one's room?
Our residents can choose to have a TV or radio in their room. However, we encourage our residents to leave their personal TVs at home and to socialize with the other residents throughout the community living room.
How can I be involved with a resident's care?
We believe you should be involved in every way in which you feel comfortable at Fox Trail Memory Care Living. Every family member handles the stress of memory care differently and it is important for you to decide what is best for your relationship, as well as your personal well-being. Rest assured that we will support you every step of the way.
Do your communities offer daily activities for residents?
Yes. All of our memory care living NJ communities offer many daily activities designed and delivered by our activity coordinator to meet your loved one's specific needs. Through our compassionate and attentive memory care, we enable each resident to experience as many daily achievements as possible.
At what times do residents have to eat?
Meals, snacks and beverages are served family style. A nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered at normal mealtimes. Moreover, we try to respect and support the lifestyle that each resident may have practiced for a lifetime. For example, "late risers" and "early risers" can eat breakfast at differing times. Although our care professionals encourage each resident to eat his or her meal with the other residents, we can accommodate special circumstances and any unique dietary needs as prescribed by the resident’s doctor.
Does Fox Trail Memory Care Living have specific visiting hours?
Since this is your loved one's home, family and friends are welcomed to visit during normal hours on any day of the week. We do ask that you show full respect for all of the residents in our community, as it is their home too.
What if the resident likes to wander?
Wandering among seniors with any form of memory loss is common. At Fox Trail Memory Care Living communities, wandering is monitored but not discouraged as such. Moreover, our care professionals are trained to address each situation individually and provide personalized solutions. For example, a resident who wants to "go home" doesn't need to be corrected. Instead, our staff member will reassure them that they are safe and will be staying here tonight. In addition, our communities are designed with hallways that feed back into the common areas to facilitate safe wandering.
Can my loved one walk around at night if he or she can't sleep?
Absolutely. We all have restless nights and our staff respects your loved one's need to get up and walk. Since our care professionals are continuously trained in the handling of unique needs of seniors residents with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, we will help determine if the restlessness is a patterned behavior related to his or her memory loss. If so, any concerns will be discussed with the family and the resident's doctor.
What amenities and services do you offer?
We are proud to offer comprehensive amenities and services including 24-hour onsite care, community security system, home cooked meals and snacks cooked daily, wellness and exercise programs, recreational activities, help with medication management, social areas, walking paths and more.
Is the memory care community secure? What happens if a resident wanders away?
Each memory care living NJ community is equipped with a non-threatening, state of the art security system. Our outdoor spaces are protected by a secured, alarmed picket fence. Additionally, every door and window at each community is protected by an audible alarm that alerts staff and our security company when an unaccompanied resident attempts to wander outside the home or open the window.
How often are housekeeping and laundry service provided?
Once every two weeks each resident’s room is deep cleaned, as well as on an as needed basis. Additionally, once a week, we provide laundry services.
We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. I thought Memory Care Living at Cresskill seemed like a very nice place, overall! The community was warm, friendly, and really felt like home. The rooms are a nice size, and it had a nice looking yard. It was just very inviting and comfortable feeling, in general!
