When individuals choose to move into a memory care community, it is generally done in order to access specialized care that is able to reduce or maintain the progression of dementia or other memory loss-related health conditions. However, there are actually a wealth of other benefits of a memory care community that older adults can enjoy when they choose to move into one. Here is more information.
Safe and Secure Environment
Especially for older adults who live alone, safety can be a big concern as their dementia and memory loss progresses. In some cases, they may start to wander around the area without any means of getting back. For others, it can mean forgetting that they have left the stove on or whether or not they have already eaten their meals that day. At Discovery Village At Sugarloaf, our memory care community was designed with our residents’ safety in mind by having anti-wandering precautionary features and comprehensive security teams.
Transitioning to a new living space can be destabilizing, if not challenging, for most people. This is especially so for individuals who are struggling with later stages of dementia. They may not fully understand why they are in an unfamiliar house and may require constant reminders. By ensuring that our apartments feel like home, it helps to ease the transition and also that our residents feel comfortable in bringing important decorations or trinkets that remind them of home. On top of this, many communities are also supportive of spouses living with the residents or offer pet-friendly environments.
24/7 Supervision and Support
One of the irreplaceable benefits of living in a memory care community is having access to professional support around-the-clock. As needed, our team members will also continuously monitor any changes in their symptoms and physical condition, providing medical or emergency care. There is constantly someone on-site to ensure that your loved one is able to get immediate help.
On top of this, activities and programs are also offered 24/7 to ensure that our residents have access to enriching activities throughout the day. This means that your loved one will continuously have the finest care and access to opportunities for engagement and improvement.
