Air Force Hero Finds the Right Routine “My father was a pilot in the air force and air national guard. He was part of an alert group that made sure the fighter jets were refueled. After his service in Vietnam, he served a long tenure in the Air National Guard piloting New Jersey Governor’s Brendan Byrne, Thomas Kean and Christine Todd Whitman. 8 years ago my father was diagnosed with Dementia. He was put on a plan to slow its course but as my mother (his wife) got older, he required 24/7 care. At the same time, my father was suffering with paranoia episodes. Concerned for my father’s diminishing health, we began searching for a memory care facility to address his needs and paranoia. My father spend a brief stint in a facility that he described as a jail. His career in the military was sporadic by nature so he was always on call and never had a regular routine. When his previous facility enforced a strict regimen of eating, activities and medicine, his paranoia got worse. We moved my father to Millennium a few months ago, they developed a plan around my father’s needs and behavior. Now he eats when he wants and is allowed to stay up late if he’s up for it. He calls Millennium home and loves the community and staff there. Since moving to Millennium, he hasn’t had a single paranoia episode. I am very happy we moved him so he can get the specific care he needs and live a happy life” - Keith S
