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 Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhoods encourage and help to develop more independence in individuals living with dementia. We promote meaningful interactions and engagement techniques to allow the person to maintain their independence, while still helping when needed. Through our person-centered care approach, we can empower our residents to maintain their best quality of life.
Memory Care Neighborhoods are far from boring and impersonal. We pride ourselves on how well we know our residents and our ability to tailor our environment to better fit their needs. We provide different life stations throughout the community, so residents can engage independently to find what most interests them. Our amazing families help us to form an engagement profile to give us a better understanding of the residents’ past, so we can continue to meet their needs in the future.
Dementia is not specific to the elderly community, and in our Arrow Memory Care Neighborhoods we can assist anyone with dementia, no matter their age. Our goal is always to provide a safe and comfortable environment for those suffering with dementia.
Making the move to Memory Care is a difficult process, but most often we find our residents improve once moving to our Neighborhood as they are surrounded by people who are trained to meet their needs. The power of engagement can bring someone with dementia back out of their shell, giving them more opportunities to socialize and thrive amongst their peers. While there is always an adjustment period, we set our residents up for success, by providing them with a safe and comfortable environment where they can have all their needs met.
