Alzheimer's or dementia care is often simply referred to as ``memory care`` in senior healthcare, and many families think of dementia as Alzheimer’s disease.

But that’s an over-simplification. While Alzheimer’s is the leading form of age-related dementia, it is only one of many different types of age-related dementia. Memory care at Glencroft involves support for a wide range of mental debilitations for residents with very different levels of physical challenges.

For example, some dementia patients may be confused, yet are completely ambulatory. They could wander away from home at great risk to themselves. Wandering dementia patients need to live in a secure environment to keep them safe.

However, other dementia patients may be just as confused, but not physically or mentally capable of wandering away, thus not requiring as much security. 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, the varying levels of dementia (mild, moderate, advanced) combined with differing levels of physical ability require several different kinds of memory care program.
