across the nation from those we work with


Kevin was there for us from beginning to end, answering our many questions and offering helpful suggestions and insights. He made this extremely difficult transition much more bearable for us. I highly recommend this service. Angela
The advisor was extremely helpful and caring during a difficult and emotional time for me. She helped me find a good safe place for my husband. In a situation where I couldn’t personally check out the facility because of the virus quarantine, I felt confident in her recommendation of the care facility I chose. Terri
Assisted living help with Bonnie was amazing. She helped set up video visits with my mother in the hospital and explained well her placement options. She talked with my wife and I at length and found my mother an excellent place for her new home. Jeff M.D.

What Is Memory Care?

Memory care is specialized health care for individuals living with memory conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Aging adults with mid to late-stage dementia often live in larger assisted living communities or smaller residential settings. These environments feature trained staff who closely monitor the health and safety of residents and have tailored programs designed to enhance memory function and decrease confusion. Even resident rooms are set up in a way that ensures familiarity and safety.

Memory care special licensing is required in certain states.

 

Memory Care Nationwide Community Features

Cognitive decline doesn't have to mean a lesser quality of life. In fact, memory care facilities are designed for residents to thrive in a supportive environment with familiar faces and engaging activities that bring them joy. Moreover, while specific amenities, services, and activities vary from location to location, memory care units in many communities are equipped with the following features to enhance the well-being of your loved one:

A Secure Environment

To minimize confusion and ensure safety, memory care facilities have 24/7 supervision and security, as well as trained caregivers to provide day-to-day guidance and support in case of an emergency. This highly structured environment is important for those who need Alzheimer's care or dementia care as they are prone to wandering or getting lost, and they may not be able to understand the dangers of their surroundings.

Cognitive Activities

Cognitive activities include puzzles and brain games that challenge the mind, as well as social activities like group games and outings that encourage connection and relationship building. There are several types of memory care activities to help residents stay engaged and active. Art, music, and fitness classes are popular memory care activities to help retain cognitive ability.

Nutritional Meals and Dining

Meals are designed to be nutritious and easy to eat, even for residents with compromised chewing, swallowing, or utensil skills. Depending on the community, even special diets can be met. Dining typically includes three meals a day plus snacks, and trained caregivers are available to help with eating and drinking if needed so everyone can enjoy their meals comfortably.

A Higher Staff-to-Resident Ratiot

Memory care facilities provide individualized care that cannot always be found in other senior living communities. This is why you can expect to see a higher staff-to-resident ratio, as residents with memory loss often need more personalized support with activities of daily living.

Memory Care at Home

The choice to keep a loved one at home versus transition to senior living is not universal. Options to stay at home include families taking on the role of a caregiver, hiring home care professionals who are experienced in caring for those with dementia, or both. When deciding to keep a loved one at home, it's important to consider key factors like the safety of the living environment, cognitive impairment, and ensuring 24/7 supervision and support are available.

Evaluate Home Safety

The safety of an environment can include keeping living areas clutter-free to reduce fall risks or removing fragile and sharp items to prevent other accidents from occurring. Researching home safety and consulting a specialist can help shed light on the specific needs of your loved one and their environment.

Cognitive Impairments

It is important for the emotional and physical well-being of all involved that a professional assesses your loved one. Healthcare professionals like doctors and primary care physicians can help spot cognitive impairments like behavior changes, decision-making skills, and accomplishing activities of daily living like eating, bathing, and dressing.

Around the Clock Support

24/7 support for loved ones ensures needs are being met and the risks of accidents are reduced. Caregiving as a family member can take a toll emotionally and physically as they juggle caregiving, raising a family, working, and everyday responsibilities. To prevent caregiver burnout, it's important to know when too much is being taken on. Consult with a professional to learn about the various options available for hiring a locally trained professional who specializes in working with aging adults who have dementia.

It would be ideal to keep mom or dad at home, but when you seek expert advice, CarePatrol is here to help. Our local senior care advisors recommend resources and care options available to help support your loved one's current and future needs.

On one hand, you want to keep your loved one close, providing them the comfort of home. On the other hand, though, you worry about their well-being and safety. This is a personal decision with no one-size-fits-all answer. But as memory loss progresses, the demands of care may become too much, creating stress for you and compromising the quality of life for your loved one.

Memory care facilities are designed to create a secure living environment for those with dementia. In addition, they come equipped with trained caregivers to help residents stay safe and engaged.
