WHAT IS MEMORY CARE?
Memory care reaches beyond the realm of traditional assisted living care. While many of the services are the same, memory care offers additional assistance with daily living in a secure environment. Additionally, the environment and activities are both specifically designed with those who have dementia or Alzheimer’s in mind.
Most people with dementia or Alzheimer’s can become disoriented or unsettled easily. Keeping the environment low-key provides the relaxed setting they need to thrive.
Daily Living in Memory Care
With this type of specialized care, the goal is not to limit or isolate individuals with dementia, but to allow them to live their lives to the fullest in a safe and peaceful environment as best as they can. Residents may have a variety of cognitive impairments which require individual attention.
What’s life like in this type of assisted living community?
In addition to the typical assisted living environment, here are a few things you may notice when you visit our memory care cottage:
- Home setting
- Natural lighting
- Safe and secure with keypads
- More individualized care and attention
- Family-style dining and gathering places
- Personal care partners providing residents with their dementia care needs
- Individualized activities tailored towards each resident’s past personal hobbies and interests
