What is memory care?
When an older adult is dealing with Alzheimer’s or dementia, they generally require supervised care and attention. Serious memory problems can lead to unsafe living situations including risk of wandering, social isolation and injury. Our secure memory care communities offer expert memory care focused around optimizing freedom of movement, promoting a worry-free lifestyle and stimulating engagement. All within a community that’s designed for comfort and security.
Compassionate and supportive memory care.
The Memory Care team at Senior Care Centers understands that memory loss significantly impacts every person and their support system differently. As a result, we focus on understanding each individual so we may provide the most positive and appropriate care possible. We strive to get to know each person as an individual, to make each resident feel safe, assured and at home and offer memory care services in both an Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing setting.
While our memory care residents have careful supervision, they also are guided to an appropriate level of independence to restore self-esteem and the dignity they have earned throughout their lives. Trained memory care nurses and therapists work diligently with physicians to provide an individualized plan of care for each resident, including medications, daily interaction and other forms of therapy.
