What is Memory Care?

People with Alzheimer’s or dementia have different care needs. Memory care meets these individual care needs by working to provide a safe and structured community for residents. In addition to receiving meals and assistance with personal care, residents also benefit from specialized support designed to help them thrive.

 

When is Time for Memory Care?

While many people can continue to live with the help of a family member or caregiver during the early stages of dementia, there may come a time when more care is needed. When looking for signs it’s time for memory care, the Alzheimer’s Association recommends asking the following questions to guide you in deciding if a move to a memory care community might be necessary:

  • Are they becoming unsafe in their current living situation?
  • Is the health of either your family member or their caregivers at risk?
  • Are your family member’s care needs within the physical abilities of their caregivers?
  • Are you or other caregivers feeling stressed, irritable or impatient?
  • Is caring for your family member interfering with other responsibilities, such as work or family?
  • Would they benefit from more structure and social engagement?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, a move to a memory care community may be in order.

 

How to Talk to a Parent About Memory Care?

Conversations about memory care can be difficult — both for older adults and the people who love them. If you’ve decided that it might be time for your loved one to move to a memory care community, a conversation must first take place.

What is the essential first step? There should be agreement amongst family members. If everyone isn’t on the same page, a doctor, care provider, or credible professional source can offer valuable insights. An open and honest discussion is also critical. Older adults should feel like they’re part of the conversation and decision-making process.

In addition to having the right people, it’s also vital to have the conversation at the right time and place. An in-person discussion is best — either at home or in another setting where your family member feels comfortable. Because most people with cognitive impairments are sharper in the morning, this may be the best time to talk.

Above all else, try to put yourself in your parent’s shoes. They may be feeling many emotions, ranging from uncertainty and fear to sadness and anger. Your empathy and understanding will go a long way toward easing their concerns.

Lastly, make sure to focus on the benefits of memory care. Many older adults may have outdated misconceptions about senior living. Educating them about the many types of communities and the features and programs they offer can help them view the move to a memory care community in a more positive light.

 

What Memory Care Programs are Available?

Many communities offer a convenient all-inclusive monthly fee, where residents have access to various services and amenities, including chef-prepared meals; weekly housekeeping with laundry and linen service; help with activities of daily living; around-the-clock health monitoring; personalized wellness programs; social, educational and spiritual programming and events; concierge services; and 24-hour security.

Team members support every individual’s unique interests, experiences and needs. Based on these factors, a customized approach is created for each resident designed to honor their legacy and passion while simultaneously cultivating moments of joy. We realize that the physical, social, intellectual and spiritual elements of your life are all important. That’s why our custom senior living programs target every one of those elements.

 

Choosing a Memory Care Community

All memory care communities are different. Researching and asking the right questions can help you locate the community that best meets the needs of your loved one and family. Some considerations to guide your decision-making process include the following:

  • Is the community conducive to the needs of individuals with memory impairments? In addition to cleanliness, circular hallways and clearly labeled rooms and doors can help community residents stay oriented.
  • Are the team members pleasant, and do the residents appear happy? Is there a calendar of events and programs?
  • Are there any enclosed outdoor areas for walking or other time in nature?
  • What dementia-specific training do the team members have?
  • Are there on-site medical personnel?
  • Is continuing care available should they require more complex medical care?

While memory care websites provide a basic understanding of what is offered, in-person visits present the best picture of what a community can provide.

FAQs about Memory Care in Texas

What is a memory care facility?

Memory care provides a safe and structured environment for those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Memory care communities and homes in the Sugar Land, TX, area have staff members with specialized knowledge and training to help residents live with the challenges associated with memory loss.

Memory care communities typically provide more support than assisted living communities, and staff members evaluate each resident to determine which level of assistance each individual needs. The atmosphere of these communities is comfortable and enriching, offering activities that focus on strengthening the mind and body. In addition, a memory care community provides services that include 24-hour health monitoring, 24-hour security and daily living assistance.

What are the signs it's time for memory care?

The signs that it’s time to transition to memory care are different for each family. Dementia is a cognitive impairment that is difficult to predict, with symptoms that don’t follow a set timeline. However, here are three moments that may show your family that memory care may be the right next step:

  1. A family member has received a medical diagnosis of dementia. Moving into a memory care community can be an easier transition when done earlier, rather than when symptoms worsen.
  2. The family is stressed and overwhelmed by caregiving. Caring for a person with dementia is a more than a full-time job, and not all families are equipped to be on call around the clock.
  3. Family members are worried. If you notice a decline in your parent or relative's mental and physical health, beyond normal age-related issues, of if you worry about their safety, it may be a good idea to look into memory care.

Does Medicare cover memory care facilities?

Unfortunately, Medicare doesn't usually cover memory care and assisted living community costs. Medicare will cover any medical treatments and therapies that the person receives while staying at a memory care community. Still, the insurance coverage does not extend to the actual costs of living in the memory care community.

 

A Network to Support Goals

Our Sugar Land memory care community is a family in and of itself. The team that works here come to us because they want to connect with people and empower them to live stronger, fuller lives. We’re optimistic, caring and dedicated to residents’ well-being.

Training

We don’t believe in limiting potential — or that of our team. Everyone in the community — wellness team members to expert operations and dining teams — are trained to support individuals with memory impairments. The day-to-day needs of residents are our priority, as is their happiness. Our team has the permission and time they need to slow down and connect. We’ll help build their own unique experience and the lifestyle that fits their preferences, with the support they deserve.

Interaction

At The Hampton, every person on the team is part of the support network. Team members are trained to go above and beyond to meet the needs and provide an exceptional experience. But our goal isn’t just to support residents — we want to understand who they are, where they came from and where they want to go. Team members are encouraged to start conversations, learn about interests and share experiences with residents. We also empower each and every resident to take time for themselves. Connect and discover shared interests one day, then take some quiet time for relaxation and privacy the next. We support their needs and how they want to interact each day.

Family

Families are often one of the core pillars of joy and success for those with a memory impairment. Our Meadows Place memory care community is open to family and friends who want to visit, engage with residents and reconnect with fond memories. We’ll work with you to create comfortable spaces for connection and help you preserve the legacy of relatives and friends for your children and grandchildren.
