Alzheimer’s Care and Memory Care - What do they provide?

alzheimersAlzheimer’s Care or Memory Care is available in many Assisted Living or Nursing Homes, usually on a separate floor or unit. These facilities also offer care for other forms of dementia and neurological or degenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s.

What is Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and over 4.5 million people in the United States suffer from it. The disease destroys brain cells and can leave a person with long-term memory loss, confusion, anger, and the inability to communicate effectively. People with Alzheimer’s require special care because of their unique needs.

What do Alzheimer’s Care Facilities have to offer?

An Alzheimer’s Care Facility, whether it is a stand-alone environment or part of a larger facility, is designed to care to the unique needs of its patients. Many of these facilities have monitored hallways, secured areas to prevent wandering, and visual cues to help counteract some of the effects of the disease.

The staff on hand are all trained in Alzheimer’s care and fulfill many of the services that regular staff at nursing homes or assisted living facilities provide to their residents in addition to their Alzheimer’s care. The highly trained staff is needed because Alzheimer’s patients can become stressed or lost because of their disease, and eventually many of them are completely unable to take care of themselves.
