Personal Care & Activities of Daily Living

We provide assistance with personal care and activities of daily living for your loved one. Our caregivers offer warm smiles, gentle touches, and encouraging words while helping with personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, and oral care), dressing, eating, incontinence management, transfers (such as moving from seated to standing), as well as getting in and out of bed.

Social Interaction

Studies demonstrate that people with healthy connections and relationships have greater emotional well-being, live healthier lives, and have longer life expectancies. We will encourage your loved one to participate in programs and activities that help them make those connections, stimulate socialization, and give them an enhanced sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging. Social hours, celebrations, barbecues, ice cream socials, and sharing stories are a few examples of our social activities that can create a sense of joy and purpose.

Emotional Support

Our attentive, 24-hour care team is here to enrich your loved one’s life through the highest standards of safety, care, dignity, and respect. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved one is in great hands.

Physical Activity

Leading a physically active lifestyle can significantly impact everyone’s well-being—including those with all forms of Dementia. Exercise is beneficial for both physical and mental health, and may improve the quality of life for people in all stages of their dementia. We offer physical activities such as walking, gardening, or dancing, as well as sports and exercises with the aim of improving fitness, building strength, and providing fun for your loved one.

Mental Stimulation

Research shows that cognitive stimulation can help slow the decline of dementia in its early stages. Our programs will engage your loved one in meaningful activities to stimulate cognitive function while addressing individual needs. Playing games, working with puzzles, or doing practical activities (such as writing or folding laundry) are some of the ways we can help your loved one engage their brain.

Life Enrichment Activities

Specially designed for people living with dementia and related illnesses, our personalized life enrichment activities strive to maximize independence while focusing on individual strengths and abilities. Your loved one will safely engage in activities such as picnics, arts and crafts, walks through the courtyard, cards, and games. From book clubs to puzzles, trivia games to movies, and much more, we strive to keep your loved one informed and engaged. Our goal is to provide a meaningful quality of life every day.

Artistic Expression

Art and music can provide powerful opportunities for connection for those with memory loss. We encourage artistic expression by offering your loved one chances to express themselves using a variety of mediums. Activities include crafts, decorative arts, and performing arts. Our retirement community also uses music therapy as a tool to bring your loved one happy relaxation or provide toe-tapping fun.

Good Nutrition

Eating a well-balanced meal is essential for overall health. We take pride in preparing nutritious entrées from scratch, served table-side by our caring team members. Our dining program is designed to offer restaurant-style menu choices with regional and traditional cuisine, served in an atmosphere that encourages independence. We welcome and encourage you to join your loved one in our dining experience.

2. What financing options are offered for Mukilteo memory care residents?

We understand that financing senior living can be a concern for many individuals. There are various options available to help cover the costs and ensure that our residents receive the care they need.

If you have private funds or proceeds from selling a home, you may be able to afford senior living without additional assistance. However, if financial support is needed, there are resources to explore.

For veterans, the Veterans Aid & Attendance program offers potential assistance. Eligible veterans and their spouses can receive up to $2,200 per month, while veterans without dependents may receive up to $1,900 per month. To learn more about this program, we recommend visiting your local Sumner VA center.

Another possibility is utilizing long-term care insurance or a life insurance policy to help cover senior living costs. Consulting with a financial advisor can help you understand how these options can be utilized effectively.

Additionally, there may be financial assistance available through Medicaid or state assistance programs, provided certain requirements are met. To discover which Washington assistance programs you may qualify for, we encourage you to explore the available options.

At Mukilteo Memory Care, we strive to support our residents and their families in finding suitable financial solutions, ensuring that quality care remains accessible to all.
