The Benefits of a Memory Care Facility
Read More to Help You Decide if Now is the Right Time for Memory Care
A professional diagnosis of memory loss can be difficult to handle. Diseases that affect memory can be a challenge for everyone involved. Once diagnosed, seniors and their families may need emotional support as well as help with everyday living activities.
Memory care is the fastest-growing segment of the senior housing market. Assisted living and memory care facilities share some of the same features including common areas, communal meals, and apartment-style living. Both communities provide help with activities of daily living (ADLs), bathing, grooming, and bathroom assistance.
Memory care communities are different because they have features designed to ensure that residents with cognitive impairments are safely cared for in a secure environment. They also support everyday enrichment activities with a therapeutic focus. Specialized care and nursing services help reduce confusion and agitation while round-the-clock care and supervision combined with safety features like secured entryways and exits prevent wandering.
At Cleveland Health Care Center, we strive to make families comfortable knowing that their loved ones are getting the care they need in an environment designed for improving independence. Our memory care facility includes a variety of amenities, safety features, and private living space for your loved one. Residents can safely engage in the activities they love.
