Safe, Comfortable Memory Care Facilities
Memory loss can be overwhelming for everyone involved, whether it be the patient or their loved ones. The cause of memory loss can be due to a number of factors, most commonly seen as we age. Dementia and Alzheimer’s patients frequently need specialized memory care in order to help keep their memories for as long as possible, especially as time goes on. These services involve medication and therapy, often used in conjunction. In the earlier stages of memory loss, a patient can often continue living at home, perhaps with assistance.
There might come a time when in-home care for a loved one losing his or her memory might not be feasible. Although inpatient care can seem daunting, specialized memory care facilities can help your loved one feel safe, secure, and comfortable during this time.
What is Memory Care?
Memory care is a long-term care solution for older adults living with memory loss for any reason. At Wartburg, these services include a secure, conveniently located unit, staffed by caring professionals who are trained to understand the specific needs of the patient. Our facility is designed to adapt to each individual’s changing needs as they age, including the specific challenges associated with the loss of memory due to dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Our memory care services feature memory-focused activities, specially designated spaces, round-the-clock monitoring, assistance with everyday living tasks, and easy proximity to living and dining areas in order to promote social interaction and easy navigation.
What Our Memory Care Units Offer
We understand how hard and emotional it can be for a loved one to have Alzheimer’s or dementia. That’s why we try to make things a little easier for residents who require memory care as well as for their families. We welcome new residents to our Memory Care unit at Wartburg with open arms. With a caring staff and services like 24/7 on-site nursing, recreational and social programs, and daily housekeeping, you and your loved ones can live worry-free.
We know that you want to be there for your elderly mother or father who suffers from memory loss every minute of every day; but with work, kids, and other things going on, it can be tough. Memory Care at our Meadowview assisted living community supports residents with memory issues like moderate dementia or Alzheimer’s and those suffering from wandering issues. In Meadowview, we have 15 apartments in a safe, nurturing, home-like environment with a secure private courtyard.
