Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other memory deficiencies affect not only the one diagnosed, but the extended circle of friends and family. Caregivers want the best for their loved ones. And, sometimes that means seeking help outside of the home. As a caregiver, you might be asking what memory care options exist.

More than four million seniors in the United States are affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. In the early stages, many seniors are capable and able to live at home; however, as memory and cognitive functions decline, safety and well-being become more of a concern. Losses in memory, perception, and judgment become more severe, and caregivers need to consider assisted living or nursing home centers that offer memory care services.

Heritage Health is an industry leader in the field of senior dementia and Alzheimer’s care. We offer a unique philosophy of care, called Life Unrehearsed®, where we focus on allowing each day to unfold moment by moment gracefully. Instead of trying to make seniors adjust, we meet seniors in the moment. Staff members have specialized training to effectively and compassionately work with seniors suffering from memory deficits. Our approaches enable our residents to experience daily joy.

If your loved one does have dementia or Alzheimer’s, a Heritage Health senior care community may be the answer. In addition to specialized memory care attention and programming, we staff licensed nurses 24 hours a day to assist with dressing, bathing, meals, housekeeping, and social service needs. The Heritage family understands the difficult decisions that come with caring for a loved one with memory deficiencies.
