When is it Time for Memory Care?

Deciding that it’s time to consider memory care for your loved one is a very difficult and emotional decision to make. If your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, you may be concerned about their safety and overall lifestyle.

It’s important to know that you’re not alone in navigating this emotional decision and that there are some signs to look out for that can help you decide if it’s the right time to help your loved one move into a memory care community.

3 Signs it’s Time to Consider Memory Care

A memory care community like Heritage Crossing can provide your loved one with the support they need to live an active, vibrant lifestyle. While dementia and other memory-related ailments look different for everyone, there are some distinct signs that can help you determine it’s time to explore memory care options for your loved one:

  • Decline in Personal Care. If you notice that your loved one is forgetting to take care of themselves and neglecting their personal hygiene, it might be time to consider memory care. For instance, if your loved one continuously forgets to change their clothes or take their medication on time, they might benefit from the services and assistance that a memory care community could provide them.
  • Safety Concern. It’s common for seniors dealing with memory impairment to wander and find themselves in places they don’t recognize. This can result in your loved one feeling overwhelmed and panicked. When your loved one joins a memory care community, they can count on a secure, safe environment to spend their days, giving you both a peace of mind.
  • Social Isolation. If you notice that your loved one is starting to lose interest in activities they used to enjoy, or they don’t want to socialize at all anymore, this may be a sign that they could benefit from a memory care community. If your loved one is struggling with feelings of isolation and starting to withdraw from friends and family, they might benefit from the social activities and opportunities that a memory care community provides.
