Memory Care

Many families think of dementia in terms of Alzheimer’s disease which is the leading form of age-related dementia. But, Alzheimer’s is only one of many different types of dementia. In senior healthcare, Alzheimer's or dementia care is often referred to as memory care, and it involves a wide range of mental debilitation along with very different levels of physical challenges. For example, some dementia patients are completely ambulatory but confused and may wander away from their home at great risk to themselves. Wandering dementia patients require a secured environment to keep them safe. Other dementia patients may be just as confused but not physically or mentally capable of wandering away, thus not requiring as much security. Therefore, the level of dementia often requires different kinds of memory care. Additionally, any given level of mental debilitation may be complicated by the patient's physical or clinical needs which may require 24-hour care. As a result, Glencroft Senior Living offers memory care (dementia care) in both assisted living with minimal clinical care, and in skilled nursing with 24-hour nursing care.
