What to Know Before Moving into a Memory Care Community

memory care

A professional diagnosis of memory loss can be difficult to handle for both the patient and the family. Diseases that affect memory can be a challenge for everyone involved. Once diagnosed, seniors may need emotional support as well as help with everyday living activities.

Assisted living and memory care communities have many of the same features including common areas, communal meals, apartment-style living, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, and eating.

The features specifically designed for residents with cognitive impairments make memory care communities different. In these secure environments, residents are provided 24/7 care and supervision. Many of these communities have security systems in place to prevent residents from wandering off. Memory care communities also focus on keeping residents’ minds sharp, with daily activities focused on maintaining their skills as long as possible while stimulating awareness.
