There are several myths surrounding memory care, the specialized attention for individuals with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It’s important to debunk these myths to promote a better understanding of memory care by providing accurate information to help families find the right level of care at the right time for their loved ones.
Living in Memory Care Neighborhoods does not take away the independence of those living with dementia. We focus on the abilities they have maintained and promote as much independence as possible. Our staff is trained to understand dementia and to help residents maintain their independence as long as possible.
Our Neighborhood is anything but boring! We engage our residents in fun and unique ways each day. We have cognitive engagements like trivia and matching cards to help keep the mind sharp. If our residents are looking for purposeful work, we have life stations where they can care for a baby, fold laundry, or organize jewelry. We also enjoy physical engagements such as morning exercise, walking in the courtyard, or taking scenic bus rides. We like to meet our residents where they are and tailor each engagement so everyone can be involved.
Memory Care is for anyone living with dementia. We focus on the person and their abilities, not their age. Moving your loved one into our Neighborhood can be a very difficult decision. It can be a big adjustment for the person living with dementia and their loved ones. Decline of the individual is not the expectation, in fact, most often we see improvement. They adjust, and with our person-centered care and engagements, residents thrive.
