How Does Memory Care Support for People with Alzheimer’s and Dementia

How The Heritage Care Center memory care community can improve safety and quality of life for your loved one

Memory care is designed to provide a safe, structured environment with set routines to lower stress for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Meals are provided and staff members help residents with personal care tasks, just like the staff at an assisted living facility, but they are also specially trained to deal with the unique issues that often arise as a result of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Residents require more frequent checks and redirection which provides extra structure and support to help them navigate their day.

Because people with dementia are prone to wander (6 in 10 do so, according to the Alzheimer’s Association), most memory care facilities are secure. Doors have alarms, elevators may require a code, and outdoor spaces are enclosed to keep residents on site. 

Activities are designed to improve cognitive function and engage residents at different stages of the disease. The Heritage Memory Care Community “meets your loved one where they are.” A Montessori approach to activities and programming helps our residents maintain their dignity and a sense of purpose.

Choosing the appropriate level of care for your loved one is an important choice. At the Care Center at The Heritage of Green Hills, we help people just like you understand their options and find the right fit. If you’d like to learn more, click the link below or call us at 484.709.1035.
