Helping a loved one with dementia cope with memory loss and other symptoms can be a source of both stress and distress at a pivotal time where compassion and calm are needed more than ever. For those in need of guidance, Family Partners provides the ideal environment and care to support persons with dementia. The staff are on stand-by to provide family-centered solutions for seniors and families of individuals with memory impairment, with the ultimate goal of prolonging independence.
Founded by Barth Holohan and Mark Tamboli in 2008, Family Partners offers two main care options. One option is the adult day center, which provides a safe, socially active and supervised place for seniors to spend part or full days while receiving the care and attention they need, as well as the socialization, stimulation and engagement that makes life enjoyable. The adult day services also provide respite for busy family caregivers who need a break from their caregiving duties. Individuals can also take advantage of multiple self-care and wellness programs, including modified exercise routine and blood pressure checks, which offer caregivers and family members respite. For those seeking a homestyle connection, Family Partners also offers residential assisted living in a Manchester location that is specifically designed and built with the needs of dementia patients in mind.
“It’s in a residential neighborhood, and you wouldn’t know it’s a home for the elderly,” Barth said. In addition to completely personalized care plans, other amenities include private bedrooms, homestyle meals and comfortable living spaces, all with the benefit and safety of 24/7 care in a familylike environment.
“Everyone gathers around the table to eat together,” Holohan said. Call or schedule an appointment online to learn about the best option for your family.
