As people get older, forgetfulness becomes common. Senior adults do not get adequate blood flow to the brain resulting in impaired memory and other declines in cognitive skills. Although at first, this is manageable, you may want to consider memory assisted living as a long-term option.
As the New Year starts, it is best for your loved ones to be in a memory care facility especially if they are struggling with forgetfulness. Serious cases of memory problems like Alzheimer’s can make your lives difficult when trying to juggle personal and work priorities.
While it can be difficult to provide quality care to senior loved ones with memory problems, a memory assisted living community can provide the care that they need.
What is Memory Assisted Living
A memory assisted community is special care and housing for senior adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Commonly these facilities feature private and semi-private apartments all structured to protect senior residents from wandering.
Because the facilities are managed by skilled and licensed professionals, they offer a high level of support and care for cognitive skills and quality of life.
Most memory care communities offer round the clock security and other services such as:
- Meals 3x a day with snacks and beverages
- Laundry, housekeeping, and linen services
- Recreational activities, socialization, and engagements for their residents
- Day-to-day living assistance including bathing, dressing, and grooming
- In house medical team for emergency
- Support groups
- Fitness programs
- Low staff to patient ratio
What Are The Benefits of Memory Care
With the intensive and long-term care memory care facilities provide, the benefits are numerous.
The well-structured environment, the meals, the routines, and they help residents get with their daily activities make the senior residents enjoy the following benefits:
The layouts in memory assisted living apartments are unique and well-though to minimize confusion.
Adequate staff to patient ratio.
A balanced level of staff and residents helps everyone get the quality service and care that they need to maintain a good quality of life.
Families will have peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are safe. People with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia have decreased ability to recognize familiar places. With extra security measures, everyone is assured of a safe environment.
Exercise and therapeutic activities are available not only to provide enjoyment and pleasure but to prevent senior residents from developing depression and isolation.
- Being one of the leading causes of disability among seniors, experienced staff in memory care apartments are proven to show a positive attitude towards patients which is associated with quality care and overall experience throughout their stay.
