Senior Memory Care and Dementia Care, Are They Different?

Searching for a senior memory care facility in Kansas City can be exhausting, and most families may not know what to look for exactly. Also, some senior memory care facilities are also dementia care facilities and not many know the difference. We know it’s difficult when the time comes to place your loved one into someone else’s care, but there are things that you should keep in mind when searching for and placing your loved one in a senior memory care facility.
Senior memory care and dementia care are two different types of specialized care for individuals with memory impairments and cognitive decline. Senior memory care is a type of assisted living that provides a secure environment and specialized support services specifically for those with memory loss, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Memory care communities typically have trained staff and offer structured activities and programs that are designed to enhance the quality of life for those with memory impairments. Dementia care, on the other hand, is a broader term that refers to the care and support provided to individuals with any type of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia care can encompass a range of services, from in-home care to memory care community groups. The goal of dementia care is to help individuals with dementia to maintain their independence, safety, and quality of life for as long as possible.
The quality of in-house staff directly correlates to the quality of care your loved one receives. Senior memory care requires a professional on staff at all hours. At Clover Care Home, we provide a 24-hour professional staff, including licensed nurses, medical management, a house manager, and monthly visits from a physician or practitioner. At Clover Care Home, we know that proper nutrition fuels the body to recover from stress and other medical ailments, as well as keeps the body strong. We focus on healthy, home cooking with an in-house cook who provides weekly meal planning and cooking classes for our residents. Our dementia nursing care team understands that familiar objects have the power to give a resident a sense of belonging and safety. We want our residents to have familiar objects around them to keep them from being disoriented for too long, and to have a sense of home.

Our staff is able to reorient our dementia residents to person, place, time, and circumstance whenever the situation arises. Positive feedback is a standard at our dementia care facility. Increasing self-esteem with positive feedback increases the likelihood they will repeat appropriate behavior. If you are looking for a facility that specializes in senior memory care or dementia care in Kansas City, contact us today either online, or feel free to call (913) 991-2605 for more information on our services.


The care our mom has received at Clover Care has been nothing short of exceptional. The country setting helps to add to the inviting atmosphere in which our mom has thrived. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Clover Care has made a difficult situation seem like a natural transition in life. We would recommend it to anyone looking for long term care of a loved one.
