Caring for a family member or a friend with varying degrees of cognitive impairment can be very challenging. It is important to know the signs that might indicate a loved one needs memory care. Below is a list of some of the signs.

-Unable to perform simple tasks

-Neglecting finances

-Unsafely exit seeking or getting lost

-Forgetting to perform daily tasks such as brushing of teeth, taking medications or eating

-Consistently losing or misplacing items

-The occurrence of more accidents or falls

-Wearing the same cloths on a consistent basis

-Generally experiencing short-term memory issues

-Calling family members and friends by the wrong name

-Hoarding of personal items

-Finding food in places such as dresser drawers

-The living conditions are inadequate

-Isolating from family members and/or friends

-A general decline of health


-The caregivers of the particular individual are feeling overwhelmed

If those signs are noticed we recommend contacting the individual's primary care provider. River Terrace Memory Care is also more than willing to answer questions. Our goal is always to serve as a resource and to appropriately connect people to helpful supports. We are proud of the fact that we have maintained our Covid-free status.
