Is it better to live at home with dementia?
- As the disease progresses and care becomes more complex, a full-time memory care setting can provide better, less-stressful moments for both the individual and their loved ones. Our dementia-friendly community is secure and geared towards enriching the individual’s life experiences while living with dementia.
How do I know if my loved one needs memory care?
- Because the onset of dementia is usually a slow and gradual process, it can be difficult to recognize when care is needed before a crisis occurs. Recognizing the need for care early can be very important, however, as care in the early stages can provide benefits to the disease’s trajectory as it progresses.
