What Is Memory Care?

Memory care offers long-term residential care specialized for those with memory issues. Designed to create a structured environment with safety a top priority, memory care focuses on setting routines, reducing stress, and incorporating unique design elements that make everyday life simpler and more secure so residents can enjoy themselves and maintain as much independence as possible.

What to Expect from a Memory Care Facility

Similar to the staff of an assisted living facility, employees help residents with daily personal care tasks and meals. However, the staff also has advanced training to support residents with the unique memory issues they may encounter. They are close at hand, checking in on residents to ensure they get their daily meals and medications and don’t miss social activities. Our staff is ready to offer 24/7 support for whatever is needed.

Because those with memory issues or dementia can get lost easily, facilities focus on making wayfinding as easy and stress-free as possible. Stringent security also ensures residents have the freedom to explore while staying safe. 

Who Qualifies for Memory Care?

To qualify for memory care, residents must have an official Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis from a healthcare professional. You or a loved one may be able to live alone during the early stages, especially if they can get regular in-home support from a caregiver. However, the time will come when more care is needed than is possible at home for the patient’s safety. Here are a few questions you can ask to evaluate whether it’s time to consider a memory care facility:

  • Do you have access to a paid caregiver, or must you rely on a family member or friend who may not have the resources?
  • Are caregiving responsibilities becoming too much for those available to help?
  • Is the situation becoming unsafe for the patient?
  • Is the caregiver or patient’s health at risk if the current situation continues?
  • Would a memory care facility offer a safer, more structured, and more pleasant alternative?
