My father has been living at Jaxpointe for the past 3 years. I moved him there from a larger institution. The residential format and intimate care have been much appreciated. It is difficult to have a loved one diagnosed with dementia. Jaxpointe does as much as they possibly can to alleviate the stress for both the resident and their family while affording as much dignity and comfort and respect as they possibly can. I am fortunate that I found them.
Look for a small facility because your loved one will get more attention and they won’t get lost in the shuffle.
I was caring for my husband at home. Having a part-time caregiver didn’t work out. I never had any sleep, physically I couldn’t lift him. I was falling and getting hurt. Since my husband went to Jaxpointe I have a life again. I feel good mentally and physically. I don’t have to worry that he isn’t safe.
Russ stays with his families and is always right there when you need him. He is so compassionate.
I looked at about 20 other memory care communities and they all seemed like a hoax. In the big fancy facilities, all we saw were people sitting in the hallways yelling for help. At Jaxpointe there is enough staff to care for residents.
