Portland Memory Care Q&A

Memory care communities offer specialized care for seniors with memory loss from Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia. Typically, memory care communities are secured to prevent wandering and offer unique programming to engage people with neurodegenerative disease. Many have courtyards or outdoor spaces for people with dementia to be outside safely.

When looking for a memory care facility for your loved one, consider the level of care and programming offered in each community. Are there specific activities that your loved one will enjoy? Do they have art therapy or gardening therapy? How does the memory care center treat each resident, and how do they provide care as dementia progresses? Ultimately, choosing a memory care community is very personal, and it should be one your family makes together, finding a person-centered community and offers holistic memory care.

An assisted living facility offers residents who have memory impairment assistance with activities of daily living and might be sufficient care in the early stages of dementia. However, as the disease progresses, residents will need more specific care services that make them feel comfortable and safe as confusion grows. Memory care communities offer those unique services, going above and beyond assistance with activities of daily living to offer a purposeful life for people with dementia.

Memory care facilities offer dementia-friendly programs and services that include dementia-friendly dining services, art therapy, gardening therapy, and more. Most memory care communities are secured units to allow residents to roam without the dangers of wandering.

Memory care is a type of senior living and long-term care. Long-term care generally refers to custodial care services witch would also include assisted living services.

As dementia progresses, most people find their loved ones need to move to a memory care unit or community. Caring for someone with dementia can be all-encompassing and incredibly stressful. Some signs that it’s time to move to memory care include experiencing caregiver burnout and safety concerns.
