Dedicated Memory Care
Spring Village at Stratford is the most trusted choice for providing seniors with memory care. Our team consists of caring and attentive professionals equipped to serve and help improve cognitive function.
How Are Memory Care and Assisted Living Different?
Memory care is an advanced form of care for senior citizens experiencing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, dementia, and other cognitive conditions that deteriorate mental faculties. Like assisted living, memory care provides support by aiding with day-to-day activities, providing meals, and promoting health and wellness. However, memory care differs in its specific focus on seniors with critical memory loss or severe cognitive impairment. While assisted living may suffice for seniors with minor cases of memory loss, you may want to transfer your senior to memory care when their condition worsens.
Here’s what memory care can provide that assisted living cannot:
- Specialized one-on-one therapies performed by trained professionals improve your loved one’s current cognitive abilities.
- A specially trained staff who are equipped to handle the symptoms and conditions of late-stage memory loss.
- Advanced security, such as locked exits, entrances, and restricted areas, to prevent your loved one from wandering.
5 Signs You Should Consider Memory Care
Memory care is a suitable option for senior citizens with declining mental health. We provide support for seniors experiencing anxiety, depression, hallucinations, personality changes, and other symptoms of deteriorating cognitive faculties.
However, if you’re a caregiver for your parents, relatives, or a senior citizen, then considering a memory care community may start with you. If you experience the following hardships because of caring for a senior, a memory care center might be appropriate:
- You’ve become depressed, anxious, or highly irritable due to caring for a loved one.
- Caring for your loved one has taken a mental or physical toll on your body.
- No one else is available to split or share the responsibilities of care with you.
- You’ve neglected other aspects of your life, such as work, family, and friends.
- You’re in a constant state of worry, fear, and concern over your ailing loved one.
What Are the Characteristics of Good Memory Care?
A quality memory care center is kind, caring, and friendly towards residents and their families. The center will involve a resident’s family and loved ones in every aspect of their new living arrangement, fostering trust and creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere. If a memory care center is of good character, they will prepare accommodations for new residents before they arrive. With the help of the resident’s family, they’ll learn in detail who the resident is as an individual: What are their likes and dislikes? What are their interests, hobbies, and passions? What makes the resident unique and special? How can we provide an excellent experience for the resident? A good center will ask and answer these questions to provide the highest level of service. Simply put, a good memory care center treats its residents as human beings.
