What is Memory Care / Alzheimers Care?
Memory care is a broad term that describes the type of long-term care that helps those with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Memory care may be provided at your home or you may have to travel to a clinic for treatment. Memory care is also offered as an add-on service at some assisted living facilities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities and nursing homes.
Memory care communities are residential communities designed specifically for the long-term treatment of residents who need memory care. Here we will focus on this type of residential memory care community.
