Memory care and assisted living facilities, are two of the most popular choices in senior care today. If you are looking for residential senior care for your loved one, you have options. There is more variety in senior care today than ever before, allowing families to choose the living experience that is right for them. Read on to learn the difference between memory care and assisted living facilities.
Both Environments Provide Assistance
Assisted living and memory care facilities both provide residents with the professional assistance in a comfortable home-like environment. While the amenities vary from place to place, most environments offer 24-hour emergency care, in-house medical assistance, and community enrichment programs.
Specialized Care for Memory Loss
Unlike assisted living facilities, which are designed to provide general care to seniors, memory loss centers are specifically designed to address the needs of people living with dementia (including Alzheimer’s) and other memory loss conditions. Not only are the staff members specially trained to care for people with these conditions, but the facilities themselves are designed to increases daily comfort for people with memory loss. Because it can be scary and disorienting, sufferers will find greater comfort when surrounded by experts.
