When to Move from Assisted Living to Memory Care.

It can be very difficult to watch the symptoms associated with memory issues progress in a loved one. The care teams at Harrison Senior Living are trained to carefully monitor wellness and watch for signs that indicate memory care may be necessary. These signals can include confusion, wandering or getting lost, aggressive behavior, difficulty eating, declining hygiene, and challenges socializing. Moving a loved one to a facility that provides specialized memory care can ensure they’re getting the support they need in an environment that prioritizes their safety and comfort.

We do understand the decision to move a loved one from assisted living to a skilled nursing memory care facility can be a difficult one. We’re here to help you make the best decision at the right time and ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
