A long-term Memory Care environment is like a helping hand for those living with Memory Loss and their care partner(s). As dementia and other Memory Loss conditions require specialized physical care and mental stimulation, going to a long-term care environment offers the best security, comfort, and social care.
Why You Should Try a Long-Term Stay in the Summer?
In the summer, the warmer weather, the bright sun, and boundless smiles create a warm and inviting environment for those living with a form of dementia or Memory Loss. Summer is also the time when most people plan social gatherings and get outside to enjoy some Vitamin D (an activity that’s great for people living with Memory Loss).
Memory Care environments often have more social activities in the summer and provide ample opportunities for family and friends to gather and socialize. This encourages participation and engagement of those living with Memory Loss.
Is a Long-Term Stay a Good Option for People Living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia?
A long-term stay often refers to an open-ended stay where there is no significant timeline or end date for specialized dementia care. It is intended to be a form of respite care for both the person living with Memory Loss and for their care partner(s).
Long-term stays are designed to enhance the daily living of the person living with Memory Loss. It can help with basic grooming and personal care with consistent and knowledgeable caregivers, engagement into customized social programs, meal preparation, laundry and basic housekeeping duties.
Above all, long-term stays in a Memory Care environment provides a safe and secure place for people living with Memory Loss to thrive. These environments have measures in place such as secure entrances and exits, calming décor, and easy-to-navigate structures. In addition, Team Members are well-versed in the care for those with dementia, Memory Loss, Alzheimer’s, brain injuries, stroke, and Parkinson’s Disease.
