Meeting the Needs of Seniors with Dementia
Nothing is more painful than losing a loved one to dementia. Added to that loss is the realization that you can no longer take care of your loved one or keep them safe. That's when it helps to find a Alzheimer special care unit that can meet the special challenges posed by Alzheimers and other forms of dementia.
Alzheimer care communities are specially designed care settings where the unique needs of the memory impaired are met. The design of Alzheimer special care units varies. Some of the newer ones are built to feel home-like with private or semi private rooms opening into a spacious living area with a circular design that allows the resident to move freely without long, confining hallways. This type of facility is always secured to protect residents who might otherwise want to wander.
Many facilities allow seniors to retain some personal belongings to help them feel comfortable in new, unfamiliar surroundings.
Most memory care units are licensed Residential Care facilities.
Adult Care Homes can also be considered for early stage Alzheimer's care. It can be a good option for a person with dementia who is sleeping through the night and is not wandering.
