ORANGE, VA–Fox Trail Senior Living of Orange nears its full capacity within 10-months of its complete conversion to an Alzheimer’s and dementia care home.
The Fox Trail location previously served as an Assisted Living community, but was converted to Memory Care in 2019 as leadership recognized the need for a dedicated Alzheimer’s and dementia care residence in Orange.
“Memory Care homes such as Fox Trail, provide specialized care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s and dementia,” shares Theresa Taplin, Vice President of Operations. “Everything from the design of the home to the care staff-to-resident-ratio, to the types of programs offered, and even our menus are
created specifically with the specialized needs of our residents in mind.”
Taplin further stresses the need to select a home with a care level and resources appropriate for your loved one. “There is a big difference between a Memory Care home and an Assisted Living home,” Taplin continued “our team can help you determine which option is best based upon the unique circumstances of your family.”
The conversion has been met with great community enthusiasm. The daughter of two former residents, Debbie L. shared: “Our Mom was the caregiver for our Dad who had dementia. When Mom fell, our parents moved to Fox Trail in Orange. They treated our parents as family and welcomed all of us (5 kids, their grandchildren and their families and other relatives) when we went to visit. When Mom passed, they continued to tend to my father as though he was their own. They cried with us, prayed with us and hugged us too. Fox Trail was perfect for my parents.”
Fox Trail Senior Living operates both Memory Care and Assisted Living properties throughout the East Coast
