Memory Care is a newer and commonly misunderstood segment of the Assisted Living umbrella. Memory Care continues to carry most of the residential facets that our Assisted Living residents enjoy, with similar independence and choices, but located in a purpose built secure unit.
Probably the single most asked question about Memory Care is “is my loved one appropriate?”. While that’s a short question, it has an extremely complex answer. In short, memory care is appropriate for a wide spectrum of cognitively impaired people, ranging from mild forgetfulness where safety could become an issue, to people with advanced dementia. A short visit with our team can help you answer this question easily.
At The Village at Skyline Pines, our Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory loss care services are focused firmly on creating a safe and familiar environment while promoting independence.
Our memory care facilities consist of specially designed living spaces and supportive environments for those who are living with cognitive challenges brought on by Alzheimer’s and dementia. These designs include delicately considered flooring to reduce problematic patterns and specialized wall colors for easy navigation for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Areas of the community are also set up for safe engagement during activities such as gardening, kitchen work, and independently focused activities that provide purposeful and meaningful moments.
Our team is trained to value each senior and to recognize his/her unique preferences and needs. We know that memory loss affects every resident differently. Understanding those differences allows us to respond positively to each individual senior while providing high-quality memory care.
Please give us a call or send a message with any questions about our Memory Care services.
