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. In fact, we encourage our residents to do as much for themselves as they can. Our staff is trained to cue residents to perform daily tasks essential for preserving their independence as long as possible. In our Neighborhoods, we strive to have person-centered care. Upon move in, information is gathered about the individual through an engagement profile, to create an engagement plan, which is utilized by our staff. Every monthly activity calendar provides fun, enriching events for our residents.
Dementia does not discriminate; therefore, our Memory Care Neighborhoods are for anyone with a diagnosis regardless of age. It is essential that a person with dementia has a safe and secure environment in which they can thrive. Neighborhoods were created to do that by providing opportunities for socialization and independence, and the staff is trained to promote the use of each resident’s remaining abilities.
As the Memory Care Director at Cedar Trails Senior Living, 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.
