Memory Care

For seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other forms of memory impairment, memory care communities provide a safe and structured environment designed with their best interests in mind. Memory care communities are typically either stand-alone facilities or located in a secure wing of an assisted living community. Specially trained staff are available 24 hours a day to monitor residents and assist them with daily activities such as taking medications, bathing, grooming, eating, and dressing. Activities are geared towards those with memory loss and may include art and music therapy.

Memory care communities are designed to prevent residents from wandering off and getting lost, a common and dangerous consequence of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Because security is essential, we evaluate each memory care community with stringent criteria to make sure everything is safe for the seniors we transition into these types of communities. This means looking for exit doors with alarm systems, enclosed courtyards, emergency call systems, and more to ensure that every community we recommend observes the highest standards of security.

Memory care communities are also known as:

  • Alzheimer’s care communities
  • Dementia care communities
  • Alzheimer’s special care units

Memory care is defined as communities specifically designed for seniors living with memory loss, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.
