what is Memory Care?
Our skilled nurses provide specialized care for those who are experiencing progressive memory loss due to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and similar conditions that cannot be managed at home. Our goal is to help residents stay active by creating a structured routine based on planned activities, family connections and emotional needs. Memory care revolves around a safe environment with diligent caregivers that allow residents to get the care they need with dignity and respect. Contact our team to learn more.

- Regularly experience sudden confusion or disorientation
- Have memory lapses that interfere with activities of daily life (ADLs)
- Have a noticeable decline in cognitive function

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What Kind of Care Do Alzheimer's Patients Need?
Memory care for Alzheimer’s patients will vary based on the stage of Alzheimer’s disease that the patient is currently at. Generally, Alzheimer’s patients will need a safe and secure environment, memory-strengthening therapies, and increased care as symptoms develop or worsen.
2. What is the Difference Between Assisted Living and Memory Care?
The difference between assisted living and memory care for Alzheimer’s is that memory care facilities offer specialized care for Alzheimer’s patients or patients with memory loss. Generally, these facilities include around-the-clock care, specialized and trained staff, therapies that aid memory retention, and a safe and secure environment. Memory care facilities will usually offer everything that assisted living facilities offer with the addition of specialized and necessary care for memory loss.
3. Is Memory Care Right For My Loved One?
While those with Alzheimer’s or dementia may remain comfortable and safe at early or middle stages of Alzheimer’s, as cognitive functions decline many families will decide on memory care for their loved ones. As symptoms develop or worsen, socialization and specialized therapies will only be found in a memory care facility environment.
4. When is It Time For Memory Care?
Generally, the time for memory care for Alzheimer’s will depend on the stage of decline in your loved one. The early to middle stages of Alzheimer’s care at home can be comfortable and manageable. However, when symptoms like increased aggression, wandering, or heightened agitation occur, memory care is recommended. Memory care for Alzheimer’s and the comfort and safety of your loved one are of the utmost importance when deciding whether it’s time for a memory care facility.
