A memory care community may be a good option when it becomes difficult to care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia at home. For people with memory problems, memory care is an intensive, specialized form of residential long-term care.

More than just housing, today’s senior Memory Care communities offer support services that improve the safety and quality of life for a loved one facing Alzheimer’s or dementia.

What Is Memory Care?

Many assisted living communities such Fields Senior Living provide special housing and programs for memory care patients. In memory care, people living with Alzheimer’s or dementia are provided with a safe, structured environment and routines designed to reduce stress. Just as in an assisted living facility, employees provide meals and assist with personal care, but are also specially trained to deal with the issues that arise because of dementia and Alzheimer’s. These residents are checked in more frequently and are provided with extra structure and support to help them navigate their day.

At Fields Senior Living, our memory care communities offer:

  • Care staff on site 24/7
  • Housekeeping and linen services
  • Patient-centered care in all areas, including personal care and assistance, activities, dining, and personal relationships
  • Well-trained dedicated caregivers and team members who are passionate about what they do and who they care for
  • Personal preferences and needs are taken into consideration and met through a dynamic, cognitively stimulating program
  • Friendships with other residents and team members
  • Services that help a resident maintain as much independence as possible in the form of occupational therapy, physical therapy or speech therapy, and other home health services
  • Appropriate medical oversight of medications, health status, and interventions
  • Providing a safe, comfortable, and dignified environment that supports residents, and allows them to live meaningful lives regardless of their cognitive abilities

We are here to help you and your family whether you need Alzheimer’s or dementia support and peace of mind that a loved one is receiving the attention they deserve.

Top Benefits of Moving to a Memory Care Community

Supervised professional care
All of Fields Senior Living communities are focused on personalized quality care. We’ll meet your loved one wherever they are on their Alzheimer’s or dementia journey and provide tailored care that enhances their quality of life. Because people with dementia are prone to wander (6 in 10 do so, according to the Alzheimer’s Association), our memory care facilities have designed spaces to keep residents on-site and monitored.

Health and independence
Our dedicated caregiving team and care partners provide personalized care, a safe environment, and positive relationships through specialized programs and support services.

Sense of community and belonging
At Fields Senior Living, we have embraced culture change by moving away from the traditional models/designs of memory care that unintentionally fostered dependence. Rather, we focus on a resident- and person-centered model: an environment created to increase autonomy and support a resident’s desire for an authentic, positive lifestyle.

Where You Live Matters

As your loved faces their Alzheimer or dementia disease, you’ll have to decide what housing option will work best for them.
