Senior Memory Care Provides Specialized Dementia Support

Senior memory care is a specific type of care for people with memory loss, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. A top priority of memory care providers is to create a specially designed facility for the safety and comfort of residents. Further, they create structured schedules and routines, which helps aging residents to remain independent for as long as possible.

Attentive, specialized care can delay the progression of dementia and Alzheimer’s. It instills a sense of purpose, satisfaction, and enjoyment in senior adults. Dedicated memory care communities with fully trained staff and numerous resources can benefit memory care recipients in significant ways.

Dementia and Senior Memory Care

They engage residents with a variety of activities and exercises that improve brain fitness, which along with special nutrition programs, can help slow the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

A continuum of care that includes programs to assist with behavioral health issues, as well as therapeutic programs and leisure activities is a vital component of a caring community.

In addition, a care facility provides quality, 24-hour care. Person’s who are suffering from dementia-related illnesses often require care at all hours of the day and night. When families are unable to provide the care they need, many will turn to dementia and Alzheimer’s care communities that can provide expert care in an environment that is dedicated to providing for their special needs.

Technology and Senior Memory Care

One of the challenges of senior memory care is dealing with wandering. The Alzheimer’s Association reports that six of every ten people with dementia wander, potentially putting themselves in serious danger. As an important resource, using technology in memory care helps community staff members respond quickly to a resident’s wandering. There are numerous devices available that are important to senior memory care. 

Many senior memory care communities devise daily programs to help keep memory-impaired people engaged and active, avoiding isolation. At Clover Care Home, we encourage our residents to reconnect by participating in such activities as music therapy, playing the piano, gardening or cooking classes.

“Some people with dementia who can no longer speak can still find the words to sing. Hearing their favorite music can give them feelings of intense joy. Those who are able often dance or stand up from their chairs and slowly sway to the music. Those who are agitated and constantly moving, become still and calm as they listen to music. Music can be understood without fear or forgetting.” [Larissa MacFarquhar, “The Memory House”]

In addition, our care community consults with our residents’ families so that we may provide the best possible level of memory care or each member of our community.

Persons with dementia and Alzheimer’s benefit from senior memory care by living a better life. They are able to experience special moments of cherishing others, while both giving and receiving kindness. Rebecca Mead, in an article in the New Yorker magazine, once noted, “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.”
