The Nation’s Most Trusted Senior Placement Organization

- according to TrustPilot, one of the world’s biggest online review communities.

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
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?

What is memory care? An Alzheimer’s & Dementia Memory Care Community is for residents with middle to late stage memory conditions. Often located in larger “assisted living” type of communities or in smaller residential settings, memory care communities specialize in special needs care and may also have the actual building set up to enhance memory functions and to decrease potential confusion for residents.

Activities focused on memory recall from past experiences are usually the staple of activities in these settings. Residents who are appropriate for this setting are usually the residents that are already residing in a assisted living environment who has begun forgetting how to perform daily activities of life or who have been getting lost, wandering or going in other people’s rooms thinking it was their own.

Special licensing is required in certain states.

Answers to the Most Common Questions About Memory Care Facilities

How Do I Know Memory Care Is Right For My Loved One?

Memory Care is a specialized type of assisted living care which focuses on residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia.  Residents engage in structured activities by specially trained staff designed to assist those with memory problems.

Memory Care Communities usually have much fewer residents than assisted living.  Some Assisted Living Communities have designated wings for Memory Care programs.  This makes it easier if one spouse required assisted living or independent living services, while the other needed Memory Care.

The rooms in Memory Care are usually a little smaller to make it more manageable for your loved one.  Cognitive decline does not always mean a lesser quality of life.  Your CarePatrol Advisor is an excellent guide to finding appropriate and safer memory care communities.
