Vitalia Strongsville Debunks Myths Surrounding Memory Care

Category: Dementia Resources

Author: Maria Sady, 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.

Living in Memory Care Neighborhoods does not take away the independence of those living with dementia. Our Neighborhood provides individuals with a secure environment for increased independence. We provide the support needed to help maintain their self-reliance, which promotes optimal levels of functioning and a higher quality of life.

Arrow Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhoods are far from being boring and impersonal. Our staff are compassionate caregivers that work above and beyond to form relationships with our residents. It is a homelike environment that meets all the needs of our residents. We offer many engagement opportunities throughout the day, including exercise, arts and crafts, games, pet therapy visits, and outings. We have loads of fun in our Neighborhood.

Memory Care Neighborhoods provide care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Though these diseases affect individuals in different ways, the need for assistance, guidance, and engagement is there regardless of age. Memory Care staff are trained to provide day-to-day supervision, support, and guidance in a safe environment, which can be very effective at lowering stress and help in improving their quality of life. There is always an adjustment period upon moving into the Neighborhood, but in the long run, residents do improve and function better in a memory care setting.

As the Memory Care Director at Vitalia Strongsville, 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?
