Memory Care is designed toward seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Physically, they may be mobile and get around fine, but the cognitive function and limitations may require more supervision, particularly with medication and some other activities of daily living. The communities’ team members are trained to meet the needs of every senior along their journey.
The Memory Care community has two household groups. People with Alzheimer’s disease can easily be overwhelmed, confused and/or distracted when faced with large groups or spaces. This applies to activity participation, meal times, and even residential living arrangements. Residents often function better in quieter, smaller groups.
In addition, these small-sized gatherings support resident-centered care and personal relationships among the residents, their families, and professional caregivers — an important factor given that social support has long been known to affect an individual’s emotional and physical health and general well-being.
