What is Memory Care and Who Is It For?
Memory care is for those with dementia. Dementia is memory loss and cognitive decline in problem-solving, language, and thinking ability that interfere with daily life. Symptoms include short-term memory loss, trouble losing things, confusion when out and struggling to remember appointments or bills. Dementia is progressive, so it will appear gradually and become more severe over time. Memory problems can be associated with medications, thyroid problems or excessive drug or alcohol use. There are new drug treatments that may improve symptoms temporarily or slow the progression. Memory care is another form of therapy to help those with dementia, providing a safer environment and lower stress environment.
Instead of struggling to help your loved one's dementia, memory care facilities can provide highly specialized and supportive care 24/7. The caregivers and support staff receive specialized training beyond simply assisting with daily activities, making them uniquely qualified in memory loss and cognitive decline.
