There are several myths surrounding memory care, the specialized attention for individuals with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It’s important to debunk these myths to promote a better understanding of memory care by providing accurate information to help families find the right level of care at the right time for their loved ones.
Living in Memory Care Neighborhoods does not take away the independence of those living with dementia. Our Neighborhood encourages the residents to embrace any independence they have. Our team is well seasoned in providing cues and encouragement, so our residents can maintain their dignity. Our Neighborhood is not boring nor impersonal. In fact, it is the opposite. We provide several types of engagement throughout the day. Our engagement plans are an amazing tool allowing us to create personalized care and engagement.
Memory Care is for anyone suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, the younger population is also being affected by this disease with some early onset dementia being diagnosed while a person is in their 40s. Moving your loved one into Memory Care can be a challenge, initially. We can see a spike in their confusion at first, but usually after about two weeks residents become acclimated. We develop a patient-centered routine; they have engagement and structure. I have personally seen individuals thrive once they come to Memory Care and get the care they need and deserve.
As the Memory Care Director at Vitalia Montrose, I hope this information helps provide a better picture of an Arrow Memory Care Neighborhood. It is important to gather accurate data to dispel myths and make informed decisions regarding memory care for yourself or a loved one. Arrow Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhoods are full of life and joy. They are a place where individuals living with dementia can thrive and feel purposeful. Interested in learning more?
