What is Memory Care?

Memory care communities are specifically designed to help meet the needs of those who suffer from things like Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other memory related impairments. One key to a great memory care community is offering personalized care to residents, as each resident has unique needs.

Memory care communities should offer residents a safe and secure environment where highly trained staff members can closely monitor the residents’ health. It’s common for a memory care community to offer programs, activities and events that are specifically designed to help residents work on improving their cognitive abilities while simultaneously getting to explore new hobbies and passions.

Overall, your parent or loved one should be able to find personalized care, enriching activities, a highly trained staff and quality services in their memory care community.
