Signs That Your Loved One Needs Memory Care
It’s no doubt that the decision to send a loved one to an assisted living community can be difficult for families. However, as the symptoms eventually worsen over time, your loved one will be better cared for by professionally trained staff and certified nurses. Here are some indications to tell that it’s time for memory care:
- Requires Full-Time Assistance
If your loved one requires assistance to perform daily tasks such as grooming and dressing, it’s a good reason to transition to memory care. Our assisted living community has a team of professionals on-site 24/7, ensuring that your loved one is well taken care of round the clock.
- Unable to Communicate
The inability to communicate one’s needs and wants can prove to be incredibly dangerous, especially if your loved one resides alone. At Caruth Haven Court, our SHINE® Memory Care program utilizes scientific methods to engage with residents and follows a remarkable communication protocol that connects caretakers with residents and their family members.
Benefits of Memory Care
In a secure environment, your loved ones will greatly benefit from our SHINE® Memory Care program. Some of the benefits include the following:
- Experienced Caretakers
One of the main reasons your loved one will thrive in memory care is the ease of access to skilled caregivers, nurses, and physicians. These professionals are better equipped to meet the needs of those living with dementia, as well as create a holistic plan that’s tailored to fulfill the needs of your loved one.
- Purpose-Driven Activities
In our SHINE® Memory Care program, residents have a choice to participate in activities either in small groups with friends or one-to-one with their caretakers. These activities can come in the form of singing, games or exercises, and are designed to be cognitively stimulating for the brain. If you’re worried that these activities might cause tension for your loved one, please do not worry as these games are failure-free and comfortable.
- Behavioral Intervention
As those living with dementia can be affected by mood swings, our professionals are well-prepared in dealing with mood disorders such as aggressive behavior. Our assisted living community also provides counseling, which helps improve the well-being of your loved one.
