Checking Your Loved One into a Memory Care Facility

Caring for a family member who suffers from memory care issues like Alzheimer’s disease or dementia can be a lot to handle. Westminster Place offers a memory care facility that is a home away from home with 24/7 care to give you peace of mind that your loved ones are happy and well cared for. Changes in memory are common as people age, but more specialized care is needed once dementia and Alzheimer’s set in. The last thing you want to happen is for someone you care about to endanger themselves, especially if they drive. With loved ones in a memory care facility, you can feel confident that they will get the level of care, attention, support, and respect you want them to have in a safe, loving environment. To learn more about memory care in Texas, contact us today at 903.329.6520.

What Is Memory Care?

Memory care is typically defined as long-term residential care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia but who do not have other major health issues. This type of care is geared toward those seniors that need a higher level of care than they can receive in assisted living or can no longer remain at home without being a danger to themselves and/or others. Memory care facilities offer a secure community that keeps residents safe within a structured environment.

Depending on the memory care facility, there are varying levels of care available. It’s all about a balance between independence and very specialized care. Memory care residents are well taken care of, with cooking, cleaning, and laundry tasks handled by our staff. They enjoy their own apartment space close to other residents so they can socialize and enjoy their surroundings. Help is available to residents whenever needed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to safe indoor and outdoor spaces, memory care facilities that are part of senior living communities employ a team of professionals that have extensive expertise with mobility issues, medication management, and nutrition. While keeping residents safe, memory care facilities also strive to ensure residents are not scared, confused, or feel alone in their environment.
