What is Memory Care?

Memory Care communities are for people who need assistance with their activities of daily living and are living with some degree of memory loss and forgetfulness.

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.

Below are common services available for this type of senior housing option:

Activities focused on memory recall from past experiences are often the staple of activities in these settings.

Residents who are appropriate for this setting are usually the residents that are already residing in an assisted living environment who have begun forgetting how to perform daily activities of life or who have been getting lost, wandering or going in other people’s rooms thinking it was their own. Special licensing is required in certain states.
