What is Memory Care?
Memory Care communities tailor their environment, programming, and personal care to people living with dementia or Alzheimer's diagnosis. These communities provide a safe, secure, and calming atmosphere that helps residents feel more comfortable and at ease. A team of professional nursing staff are trained in the cognitive, behavioral, and physical symptoms that often accompany dementia. This helps them adapt their care and interactions to create a helpful and restful home for residents. Memory Care communities have security measures such as enclosed outdoor spaces and secure entries and exits to safeguard against wandering. Families can feel confident knowing their loved one is being cared for in a conscientious community built specifically to cater to their needs.
The Memory Care Experience
At Senior Lifestyle, our modern Memory Care communities focus on making each day more vibrant for their residents, no matter their current abilities and cognition. Our Memory Care communities create atmospheres that allow residents and their families to live with confidence, knowing they are well-cared for, safe, and secure.
Environment and Atmosphere
Residents living with memory impairment, dementia, or Alzheimer's thrive best in calm atmospheres and familiar settings that minimize distraction and confusion. Our Memory Care communities provide this type of atmosphere inside and out, with beautiful, enclosed outdoor spaces. Families can feel more confident because their loved one is surrounded by 24/7 attentive care, security systems, and alarmed community entrances and exits.
Memory Care communities tailor their social interactions, daily programs, and stimulating activities to fit with the abilities of their Memory Care residents. These changes can include adaptation for sound and distraction, calming activities, and gentle encouragement. Many communities provide programming that encourages brain health and socialization centered around long-term recall.
embrace Memory Care
Senior Lifestyle has created embrace Memory Care to help residents living with dementia or Alzheimer's find more joy and connection in their lives. This program is based on the latest memory research and engages residents by creating moments that stimulate the senses and call on engrained activities to encourage interaction with the world around them. This program takes personalized care one step further by forming daily rhythms for residents that allow more choice and independence in their days, such as choosing activities and menu items through visual cues. Finally, embrace Memory Care supports family members and friends in creating more meaning and connection in their visits through innovative programs and guided interactions.
Memory Care Services
Memory Care communities provide all the services and amenities offered in other senior lifestyles but adapt their approach to service to help those living with dementia and Alzheimer's feel more safe and secure. Professionally-trained staff members provide daily activities to create a more fulfilling lifestyle for their residents, while clinical and nursing teams ensure residents personal care, nutritional, and medical needs are being met.
Seniors living with dementia and Alzheimer's often need help completing the activities of daily living, including dressing and personal hygiene. While families often wrestle with the question of when to move from Assisted Living to Memory Care, in the early stages of adapted Memory Care, a caregiver may only provide gentle reminders or cues to help residents complete a task, maintaining independence longer. In later stages, help can be adapted to include full daily assistance to help residents prepare for their day. Memory Care communities should tailor personal care plans to the individual, addressing their care needs at each stage of progression.
Cleaning and Laundry
For many seniors, not just those with dementia, household chores often become more difficult as they age. Memory Care communities take these daily to-dos off their residents lists and provide services such as daily tidying-up, weekly housekeeping, laundry services, and more. These services create a manageable lifestyle, leaving more time for relaxation and enjoyment.
Meals and Nutrition
Many family caregivers struggle with getting their loved ones to eat a balanced diet. In Memory Care communities, our staff communicates with the residents and family members to understand their taste preferences, nutritional needs, and medical limitations. The communities can provide tailored diets, pureed meals, and meal assistance to ensure residents are getting the nutrition they need.
While dementia and Alzheimer's can often change relationships, many residents still find comfort and companionship with their beloved pets. Many Memory Care communities embrace these relationships and provide pet-friendly apartments and spaces where owners and furry-friends can enjoy their days together.
