Many families face challenges when their loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, and often lack the ability to provide necessary care in the home. Usually, the only viable option is to transfer them into a nursing facility, memory care center or assisted living home that are facilitated by specially trained staff members. Unfortunately, not every residential care community provides their residents the highest level of care and services. The elder abuse attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers represent neglected, mistreated and abused patients who reside at Illinois sheltered care facilities like Brookdale Hoffman Estates.

Hoffman Estates Sheltered Care Home Resident Safety Concerns
Families can review statistics from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH – ltc.dph.illinois.gov) and download a comprehensive historical list of all safety concerns, incident inquiries, health violations, filed complaints and opened investigations of every facility statewide. The data can assist families in determining the level of hygiene and health care each community sheltered care home provides its residents. The Cook County neglect attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have reviewed numerous violations, hazards, incidents, deficiencies and safety concerns at all sheltered care facilities in Illinois.
Before Relocating to a Memory Care Community
It is crucial to visit numerous memory care communities to see what is available. Often, the comparative search for facilities begins online where families can narrow down their list to five communities or fewer before scheduling an on-site visit.
Most memory care homes are staff with individuals who focus on attracting new clients and building community relations. These are usually the individuals that provide a tour of the facility, answer family questions, discuss financing and respond to every specific concern about how the home will provide individualized care.
Visiting the site is essential because photographs and website descriptions cannot paint the complete picture or capture the actual environment inside the home. Visiting the facility provides the opportunity to discuss the kind of personal input the loved one will receive compared to all the other facilities the family visits.
If invited, stay behind to participate in an activity or meal to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the level of care the facility provides, the social structure of the Home and how normal daily requirements of the center's residents are met.
What to Expect
The facility provides individualized care plans that enrich the resident’s life while they resided in a safe environment. Brookdale Hoffman Estates provides care based on the latest approaches to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease care. The facility will develop an effective Plan of Care that encourages fulfillment, purpose, sense of self and belonging. In addition, residents can participate in Morning Mental Workouts that encourage their abilities and stimulate the brain.
The facility provides train staff members that specialize in assisting residents was showering, toileting, dressing, grooming and moving around the facility. The resident usually has opportunities to participate in speech, occupational and physical therapies to enhance their quality of life, mobility and regain many lost functions after a debilitating illness, surgery, accident or stroke.
The facility can assist the loved one in numerous ways that include:
- Around-the-clock security and supervision
- Meals provided in the dining room and/or resident’s room
- Emergency call system
- Social activities and programs
- Exercise and health programs
- Laundry and housekeeping services
- Access to medical care
These amenities are offered in a soothing environment where the indoor and outdoor spaces provide a relatively independent environment designed specifically for the memory impaired.
The facility provides the ideal balance between assisted living options and memory care. Many individuals are only in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s care and choose and do not yet require memory care, medical monitoring, supervised services, hygiene assistance, mobility devices or intensive long-term care.
