MEMORY CARE FACILITYALZHEIMER'S AND DEMENTIA CARE
What is Memory Care?
Alzheimer’s care — a unique program for the elderly with memory care needs.
Why Choose A Memory Care Facility?
Memory care is a special kind of care provided to those with varying degrees of dementia or Alzheimer’s. It involves creating a structured environment that has set schedules and routines in place to create a stress-free lifestyle, safety features to ensure the health of a senior, and programs designed to cultivate cognitive skills.
When a senior is dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia, they often require attentive and expert care, along with an environment that’s safe and secure. A caretaker may not be able to give a senior the care they need at all hours of the day, and most homes are not built to accommodate the special needs of those with memory loss. That’s why so many families turn to memory care communities, which can provide the needed expert care in an environment that has numerous safety features and supportive staff available around the clock.
One of the goals of memory care is to help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s or dementia while also enabling a senior to feel purpose, a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment on a daily basis. Memory care communities have trained staff, top-of-the-line resources, and expertly crafted activities to help accomplish this goal. For instance, a community may engage residents with brain fitness exercises and memory games, and by providing specialty food programs, both of which can help fight off the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia. And it’s all done in an environment that can make a senior feel comfortable and safe.
