Most communities require a diagnosis or exam to confirm. Memory care communities also host a variety of brain-engaging activities and entertainment options, dining options, and amenities designed to keep seniors safe.
Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Memory Care Communities are for residents with middle to late stage memory conditions. These facilities can be located in larger assisted living types of communities or in smaller residential settings. These communities specialize in this special needs care and may also have the actual building set up to enhance memory functions and to decrease potential confusion for residents.
