Assisted living brings up a lot to consider for any senior. If you’re contemplating a transition into assisted living, you may be curious about the kinds of support that will be available to you. For seniors that are looking for help with memory issues, it’s a good idea to explore assisted living with memory care.
The Benefits of Assisted Living with Memory Care
Memory Care refers to services provided by your assisted living community to help you keep enjoying life despite Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other memory issues. If you’ve had issues with memory that have started to affect your day-to-day life, assisted living with memory care might be the right fit for you.
Memory Care Gives You the Support You Need and the Freedom You Crave
One of the purposes of memory care is to allow seniors to continue to live their lives as they want to with the support that they need to be safe and comfortable. At the Piper, memory care residents have their own private apartments that they can decorate and use as they please. Memory care households are purposefully small, so staff can give you personalized attention and support. The goal is to give you the level of support that you need, not to impose rules and regulations that cramp your style.
Memory Care Makes Your Life Easier
Do you ever get exhausted by just managing the details of everyday life? Everybody does, from time to time. In assisted living with memory care, much of that burden will be lifted from your shoulders. Your utility bills will be included in your rent, so you’ll have no more bill payments to worry about. We’ll even provide someone to do your laundry. In assisted living with memory care, we’ll take on all these little tasks for you so that you can save your time and energy for the things you really want to do.
Memory Care Is Flexible and Adaptable
If you think every community offering assisted living with memory care is the same, think again. One of the benefits of memory care is that it can be provided in degrees that are appropriate for the patient, as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach. The Piper offers different levels of memory care depending on what would work best for you. “Memory Care Lite” provides a minimal level of support for seniors who just need a little extra help throughout the day. If you would benefit from more support, The Piper has staff members that are specially trained to assist you. No matter how much or how little support you need, assisted living with memory care can provide it.
Memory Care Is Social, Supportive, and Fun
An unfortunate stereotype about assisted living is that it just isn’t much fun. You’ll be delighted to learn that memory care at the Piper couldn’t be farther from that stereotype. Memory care isn’t just meant to keep you comfortable; it’s meant to allow you to be social and have fun with other seniors. Memory care at the Piper includes games and activities that will help you laugh, keep your memory sharp, and make new friends. Social areas include a fireplace, a piano, and lots of board games and other activities. The best part is that you don’t have to do anything special to be included – you simply have to walk out the door of your apartment and join the fun.
