Senior Memory Care – Aging In Kansas City

Senior memory care is a term used to describe a type of living that provides long term specialized care to seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The number of people with dementia and other forms of memory loss is projected to more than double in the next 25 years. The ‘Baby Boomer’ generation is aging and fall into this category.

A good life for anyone can be realized by experiencing special moments of cherishing others, and both giving and receiving kindness. Losing one’s memory and all the other debilitating factors that go along with it can be devastating to seniors and their family members, but living in a memory care facility doesn’t mean they have to lose those special moments. Rebecca Mead, in an article in the New Yorker magazine, notes, “Research has shown that endorphins released during a pleasant experience have a salutary effect on a person with dementia, even after the experience is forgotten.” Senior memory care at Clover Care Home extends those kindnesses to our residents, promoting person-centered care.

Person-centered care requires caregivers to get to know their residents as individuals, learning what they like and dislike, the activities they enjoy, and what makes them more comfortable, respecting their dignity.

Senior memory care communities are built for the specific purpose of caring for people with dementia. The safety of seniors suffering memory loss is a top priority, and it has been shown that a secure environment that is specially designed to reduce the risk of danger from wandering, can help residents to remain independent for as long as possible. A facility designed to handle individuals experiencing memory loss ensures residents are kept engaged with others, which reduces feelings of isolation. There are programs in place that assist with behavioral health issues, therapeutic programs, and leisure activities.

A senior memory care facility addresses family needs, offering reassurances that their family member has quality, 24-hour care. They are committed to providing information and practical tips to help families navigate the many challenges that are common when caring for a loved one with dementia.

When you are looking for a senior memory care facility for yourself or a family member, a few things to consider are the person’s individual needs, researching the features and treatments available at the memory care community. Learn about their policies, what security and safety measures are provided, and what on-site staffing is available.
