How does memory care help seniors with memory loss?
As Alzheimer’s disease and dementia affect the memory, behaviors may become more challenging. 24-hour monitoring in a secure and safe place may become necessary. Memory care residents at Graceful Senior Living receive exceptional care for memory loss, from living among a supportive community of their peers, to specialized caregivers who understand various the stages and forms of cognitive impairment.
A memory care facility also provides support for the family caregiver and allows them to focus on other areas of their life, without feeling overwhelmed by full time responsibility of caring for an individual with dementia.
What are key differences between memory care and assisted living?
While Graceful Senior living provides both a memory care and assisted living facility, it is important to understand which one is right for your loved one. Assisted living normally does not have 24-hour care and usually deals with less severe cases of dementia. Assisted living is primarily for those who need a little extra help, while memory care is for seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Graceful Senior Living provides memory care for those who need more constant assistance coping with the challenges related to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of age-related dementia, including higher level cognitive issues.
Is memory care right for my loved one?
Memory care is important for seniors and individuals who live with dementia or another type of memory loss. Memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease is progressive, categorized in different stages. Memory care facilities can provide strategies on coping with memory loss, while promoting residents’ independence. As dementia progresses, the person’s ability to care for themselves lessens, and 24/7 help may be needed. Seniors with severe memory related conditions need help that family members cannot provide, so they often turn to assisted living facilities with memory care specialists or Alzheimer’s care facilities. Residents in a memory care facility benefit from an organized setting and daily routines to maintain their sense of independence.
