What Makes Memory Care Different?
It’s easy to be confused about the difference between memory care and other services, such as assisted living, respite care, or hospice and palliative care. Not all senior living is the same. The goal of memory care is to provide a safe and structured environment for those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s. This is done through set routines that help lower stress levels. Meals are provided for residents, and our staff helps out with personal care tasks. Each of our team members is trained to deal with any unique issues that may often arise with memory care patients. Extra support and structure and provided to help your loved one navigate their days.
Does My Loved One Need Memory Care?
Some people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s can live at home during the early stages of their condition, often with a family member or paid caregiver. However, there comes a time when that level of care is no longer sufficient. We recommend moving your loved one into a memory care facility if they have become unsafe in their current home, are putting their caregiver at risk, have care needs that are beyond their caregiver’s abilities, are stressing out their caregiver, are causing their caregiver or family members to neglect other responsibilities, or could benefit from the structure and social interaction of a memory care facility.
