Memory Care vs. Assisted Living: What’s The Difference?
There are many differences between assisted senior living and memory care. We offer lifestyle options for both types of care in our studio and one-bedroom apartments. Some of the main differences include:
Safety – Our memory care community offers emergency alert systems and daily check-ins. For our community members with memory loss, we boost security and look for aggression, wandering, and possible falls. Our memory care community provides protection to those with cognitive limitations. We have delayed egress doors for security. Our memory care residents are given as much freedom as possible while putting their safety first!
Amenities – Memory care and assisted living communities offer multiple amenities to promote an active lifestyle. We offer many social events to stimulate emotional and cognitive function. Physical activities are encouraged to keep our members active. Musical therapy, entertainment, and art classes help our members stay social. Our memory care community enjoys the same types of amenities with a heightened level of security. We primarily focus on physical fitness and nature walks to reduce restlessness and improve sleep habits.
Staff Training – Memory care and assisted living communities team members have experience and training to support all residents with anything they need. Memory care team members are further trained to provide customized, around-the-clock care for dementia community members. They’re trained to prevent and manage challenging dementia behaviors with care and compassion. They understand residents want to be as independent as possible but know when to step in to provide additional support.
