Memory/Alzheimer's Care Communities
Memory care is designed for seniors with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. As Alzheimer's disease or dementia progresses, the level of care and assistance a person requires increases. Many families prefer to keep their loved one home for as long as possible, but at some point a person with Alzheimer's will need more care and safer environment than you can provide at home.
