MEMORY CARE FAQ

A resident dealing with memory loss, whether from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, requires a unique kind of care and attention. They need to be in specially designed surroundings with specially trained professionals who are able to work closely with the resident, and their family, to provide compassionate care that meets their distinct needs.

Dementia is a loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that are severe enough to interfere with daily life. It’s important to notate that dementia itself isn’t a disease, though it often accompanies diseases like Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s, on the other hand, is a disease and is responsible for 60%-80% of dementia cases. It’s a progressive, degenerative brain disease that affects parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. 1 in 8 people over age 65 has Alzheimer’s, which affects women more than men.
