YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other form of age-related dementia, you don’t have to find your way forward on your own. We’re skilled providers, and we know just how to help you face the overwhelmingly complex and physically demanding circumstances.
REMEMBER THE WHOLE FAMILY.
In the Huntsville, TX, region, Creekside offers effective memory care for seniors — and we’re genuinely, deeply committed to helping your loved one, you and your family. Staying active and involved is a path to fulfillment for everybody. So we offer lots of activities for residents and family to enjoy together, ensuring family members always feel welcomed, and every family member can feel empowered to be as closely involved with their loved one’s care as they choose.
MEMORY SUPPORT SHOWS HOW WE CARE.
When dementia is diagnosed, we help our Catered Living, Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing residents remain independent and in place for as long as possible. If a time comes where our dedicated Memory Support neighborhood will serve them better, or if nonresidents from the greater Huntsville area require Memory Support, we’re eager to start the conversation and help them and their families find their place within our program of services.

MEMORY SUPPORT FAQS
Yes. It’s quite different, for several reasons and in several ways. The Memory Support staff are specially trained dementia care professionals who work together with each resident and their family to create structure, familiar surroundings and consistent daily schedules. The Memory Support environment must be completely secure and uniquely safe, yet one that stimulates response, promotes purpose and celebrates accomplishments. From dining to activities to staff training, care provided at Creekside is designed to meet the needs of each resident with compassion and highly specialized care, recognizing that memory loss — whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia — affects not just the resident, but their family, too.
Dementia is the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that are severe enough to interfere with daily functioning. Dementia itself isn’t a disease, though it often accompanies diseases like Alzheimer’s. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, depression, or imbalances in substances such as hormones or vitamins. In contrast, Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that affects parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. It affects women more than men and is responsible for 60-80% of dementia.
It may seem odd, but the compassionate staff member who provides Memory Support services is gifted with a certain knack. Carefully selected and trained, each Memory Support staff member is, of course, highly person-centered, observant and focused – but beyond that, we look for a warm-hearted temperament, together with exceptional patience, gentleness, and a passion for consistently providing dignified and respectful care.
