The Wellington Senior Living Debunks Myths Surrounding Memory Care

Category: Dementia Resources

Author: Camilla Strickland, Memory Care Director

There are several myths surrounding memory care, the specialized attention for individuals with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It’s important to debunk these myths to promote a better understanding of memory care by providing accurate information to help families find the right level of care at the right time for their loved ones.

Arrow Memory Care Neighborhoods believe in promoting each resident to be as independent as possible. They focus on seeing the residents as valuable individuals who are not labeled because of the disease process which has some limiting capabilities. Memory Care Directors, the champions of the Neighborhoods, spearhead the training and development of the staff and all who encounter the residents. Quality programed events that reflect the residents’ remaining abilities and personalities allow them to live a fulfilling life, one with confidence and capabilities rather than limitations.

Our Memory Care Neighborhood is full of life and vitality. Providing a daily rhythm in a well thought out structured environment lends to successful outcomes and moments of joy throughout the day. The Memory Care Director and Support Partners focus on person-centered care and programming that is built from each individual resident’s life history. Our Memory Care Neighborhood can’t be impersonal or boring because everyone is unique.

Memory Care is not just for the elderly, it’s for any individual of any age that has been diagnosed with dementia. Research has shown it is impacting even younger generations. We have come a long way in our understanding of these diseases and can notice signs even earlier to provide support to individuals young or old.

The health of an individual usually becomes better after settling into our Memory Care. The Neighborhood is a smaller environment laid out for optimum engagement, allowing residents to maneuver through their home freely and safely. Life stations and guided programs are instrumental in seeing residents live a quality and thriving life. Knowing about and understanding our residents prior to the disease allows us to tap into them as we embrace each day, allowing them to contribute to a purposeful lifestyle.

As the Memory Care Director at The Wellington Senior Living, I hope this information helps provide a better picture of an Arrow Memory Care Neighborhood. It is important to gather accurate data to dispel myths and make informed decisions regarding memory care for yourself or a loved one. Arrow Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhoods are full of life and joy. They are a place where individuals living with dementia can thrive and feel purposeful. Interested in learning more?
