Memory loss is a challenging disease that can be overwhelming for seniors and their loved ones who experience it.
What Is Memory Care?
Memory Care is provided 24/7 and designed for seniors who suffer with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or any form of memory loss. It provides a safe, clean, and secure environment to help seniors maintain their sense of belonging and unique personality in a comfortable setting. It is important to note that there are many quality Memory Care communities which are not the stereotypical “lonely place” for seniors. In fact, most seniors in quality Memory Care communities find fulfillment and satisfaction through the service provided by kind, empathetic and well trained staff.
Does My Loved One Need Memory Care?
Your loved one might need Memory Care, if he/she suffers from Dementia or Alzheimer’s, or general symptoms of early stage memory loss. Health and safety are the main reasons loved ones should consider before moving a spouse, parent or friend to a Memory Care home. Some questions to ask yourself include:
Are a loved one’s daily care needs more than you can provide?
Does my loved one have dementia induced aggression, wandering, or depression?
Is there a physical or mental health risk to yourself or a loved one?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then Memory Care should be considered.
