It is not uncommon for our residents in assisted living and residential care Communities who are cognitively impaired to also suffer from additional conditions, such as: depression, dementia, heart failure, urinary tract infection, etc. Our role as care providers is to understand the common diseases and disorders our residents encounter and develop strategies to provide a safe and caring environment to ensure appropriate quality care for each individual’s needs and desires. Learning how to adequately care and supervise each resident may be a challenge; however, using the right tools and methods we can establish quality care for residents with co-morbidities and are cognitively impaired.
