If a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia and you are looking for the best care, a memory care community may be your answer. While typically more expensive than other senior living options, they are equipped to provide the most comprehensive care.
Memory care communities such as MorningStar of Beaverton care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia from the onset of the disease right through to the most advanced stages. Services include 24-hour supervision and typically offer a secure environment specifically designed to keep residents safe and secure. This means residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and are free to explore their surroundings.
Another thing to know about memory care is that it has evolved through the years. Today’s communities now offer wellness programs that help deal with memory impairment and wandering issues as well as other common dementia behaviors. At MorningStar of Beaverton, we provide residents a number of specialized programs and highly personalized care that addresses their unique needs.
Studies also show residents in memory care communities have a higher quality of life. A Place for Mom, the largest senior living referral website, reports that residents in memory care have “reduced medication and medication side effects; fewer falls, injuries, and hospital visits; increased nutrition and wellness; and greater independence and social interaction.” They also add that close to 75 percent of residents experience an improvement or maintenance of mental functioning.
