Memory Care Assisted Living
Your loved one enjoys good physical mobility or may need some help with bathing and toileting. You've noticed early signs of Alzheimer's or dementia but there's more: your loved one can be aware of cognitive difficulty just as she is of physical difficulty, and it may lead to despondency and depression.
Memory Care Assisted Living Centers mirror the home-like setting and services of conventional Assisted Living, but offer cognitive therapy that aims to maintain and even improve neurological health at onset to middle stages of Alzheimer's or dementia. Cognitive loss is often extremely frustrating to seniors, disrupting the bond they feel with loved ones. Consistent, activity-based therapy has been shown to improve function and basic markers of happiness and contentment connected with important relationships.
