Alzheimer's disease is having a big impact on public health, and also on caregivers and society in general. In the last few years, the numbers of senior patients with Alzheimer’s and other types of memory impairment have increased.
In 2019, more than 16 million family members and other unpaid caregivers provided an estimated 18.6 billion hours of care to people with Alzheimer's or other dementias. Its costs extend to family caregivers’ increased risk for emotional distress and negative mental and physical health outcomes.
If you have a friend or family member, undergoing memory impairment you might wonder: Is memory care right for my senior loved one?
The first thing to take into account is that memory care is a very specialized area of care, it’s a person-centered approach that’s designed to offer memory care programs for those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other memory impairments.
Having professional memory care can improve your loved one’s quality of life significantly.
According to the Alzheimer's Association “If the person with Alzheimer's or other dementia prefers a communal living environment or needs more care than can be provided at home, a residential facility may be the best option.”
“There may come a time when the person living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia will need more care than can be provided at home. During the middle stages of Alzheimer's, it becomes necessary to provide 24-hour supervision to keep the person with dementia safe. As the disease progresses into the late-stages, around-the-clock care requirements become more intensive.”
