Finding the right community for those seeking to remain independent in a safe and nurturing environment...
A memory care environment is designed for persons with a level of impairment making it unsafe for one to continue to stay at home, but who does not require the intensive care of a skilled nursing facility. Memory care allows a person experiencing memory loss to maintain a level of independence while relying on the safety and security of being in a residential community with a professional staff.
Memory care units offer a higher ratio of staff to residents than other types of care, specialized training for their staff, and activity-based resident programs. The residents typically live in a private or semi-private suite or apartment. Scheduled activities and programs are designed to enhance memory and are supervised by trained staff members. The unit may include features such as secured exits and enhanced visual cues (such as signs, pictures, and memory boxes) designed to help residents feel more oriented in their surroundings. In memory care communities, common spaces are provided for socialization, meals and activities.
Typical Services in Memory Care:
Comfortable private or semi-private suites or apartments
Three meals per day
Hospice Care, if needed
Exercise and physical therapy programs
Social programs and activities
24-hour staffing and personal assistance
