Memory Care Communities are specialized Assisted Living Communities for those who are diagnosed with memory issues such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia. These may be stand-alone facilities or they may be a specialized unit of a CCRC, Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing community. The facilities are staffed 24 hours per day by staff who are specially trained to deal with those who have cognitive issues. Security codes are required for entry and exit to keep the residents from wandering off. Services offered include medication management and assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing or grooming. They also offer programs and therapies specifically for those with cognitive issues. They may have both private and semi-private rooms available. Housekeeping, maintenance, linen service and laundry service is included.
