Diseases such as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia are progressive—meaning they grow more pronounced over time. In the earliest stages, it may be difficult to recognize the difference between common forgetfulness and memory loss. We recommend seniors have regular visits with a primary care physician and discuss any concerns they have.
If your loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, he or she will benefit from placement in a memory care neighborhood. Memory care neighborhoods are specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with memory loss, providing visual cues that will support your loved one in making the transition from home to a senior living community. Memory care neighborhoods also offer activities in smaller groups and individually that are designed to help a memory care resident reconnect with activities they enjoyed earlier in their lives and keep them engaged in the present through participation in those activities. If you are unsure if your loved one is ready for memory care, check out this resource from the Alzheimer's Association, Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's Disease.
