Have you observed a decline in your loved one's participation in community events? Are they no longer taking advantage of meals in the dining room without prompting? Are they demonstrating a lack of interest in social activities?
These changes might be attributed to the cognitive decline associated with dementia. Many seniors in this situation become aware of these changes, including their inability to recall important information or simply failing to remember their usual routines. According to research, this may lead them to withdraw and in some cases even experience depression.
The top priority is the happiness and safety of your loved one. If they are no longer content or capable of participating in activities offered by assisted living, memory care may provide a more stimulating and secure environment to do so. Nurses, caregivers, and lifestyle staff in memory care can assist residents in engaging socially, recollecting meaningful aspects of their lives, and guiding them through an active and gratifying daily schedule.
Additionally, it ensures they have a higher quality of life by receiving sufficient nourishment and remaining suitably stimulated for years to come!
