What Our Memory Care Community Can Offer You

Just because someone you love is experiencing memory loss, it doesn't mean that they should have to sacrifice their quality of life. Our residents spend their days in a secure environment, surrounded by familiar people who encourage them to enjoy life, experience feelings of belonging and purpose, and help to maintain their current skills through our daily path of engagement. 

Here are just a few of the ways we help the seniors in our memory care programs make the most of this season of their lives:

A Secure Setting
Our community was built specifically for memory care residents, so their safety comes first. Such features include extensive circular paths designed to lead residents to areas of activity, way-finding cues and spaces decorated like home. With secured entries and exits and enclosed walking areas, our residents living with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia can explore the outdoor gardening area, courtyard and the rest of their surroundings in a secured environment. And our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
Memory care residents thrive in an environment that feels comfortable and familiar, so our community features a cozy setting and peaceful surroundings to recreate the kind of home life they enjoy. Our soothing wall colors and easy-to-navigate floor plans provide the comforts of home so your loved one feels secure and not overwhelmed. We offer private studio units and semi-private units, both full of natural light as well as ample storage for your loved one to bring familiar furnishings and treasured keepsakes.

Consistent Care Assignments
You can rest easy knowing your treasured family member will have the support they need here at Brookdale High Point North. We know how challenging it can be to be responsible for the care of a loved one, which is why we’re here to help. With consistent care assignments, your loved one is cared for by the same Brookdale associates whenever possible to encourage relationship-rich care and familiarity. Whether we’re providing personal dining assistance and gentle reminders or helping with daily tasks like managing medication, bathing and dressing we’re here to help your loved one feel secure and well-known.

Enriching Activities
Alongside other residents on a similar life journey, your loved one will participate in six activities a day through our daily path of engagement. We’ve spent years developing programs that promote social interaction and cognitive retention without sacrificing laughter and fun. These include morning mental workouts with brain games and discussions, along with fitness activities such as dancing, walking and our B-Fit program.

Personalized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Our memory care programs offer you and your family a secure, reliable environment to thrive. We know how difficult it can be to trust someone else to care for your loved one. That’s why we spend time learning about each resident’s past, their likes and dislikes, and what makes them feel cherished and loved throughout an ordinary day. We use a person-centered approach to create feelings of belonging and purpose for your loved one while seeking to preserve their identity and sense of self.  This helps our team meet your family member's unique needs for early, middle or late stages of Alzheimer's and other dementia.

Common Questions About Memory Care

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who are relatively independent, but they need some assistance with daily tasks, like bathing, dressing and managing medication. Assisted living is ideal for those who are looking to make the most of their retirement by living closer to other people in the same stage of life, while getting access to quality care, great onsite amenities, and interesting activities happening at the community.

 

Memory care communities are specifically designed for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. They feature safe and secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. You'll also find programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities, while also getting to enjoy passions and hobbies. Staff typically are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss.

Memory care features can vary from location to location. Sometimes they are stand-alone communities, and sometimes they are part of a larger community with more levels of care. They often include safety features like emergency alert systems, enclosed courtyards and keypad entry; personalized programming; easy-to-navigate features like color-coded hallways and spacious hallways; and accommodations for seniors in both the early and late stages of dementia.

As much as we wish there was a cure for Alzheimer’s, the best thing a memory care community can do is provide opportunities for your loved one to maintain or experience improvement in their current skills. Research has shown that living in a community can reduce the amount of medication a resident needs, increase their overall health and wellness with proper nutrition and exercise, and provide increased social interaction that leads to lower levels of depression and isolation.

The cost of memory care depends on several different factors, including location, floor plan and how much care your loved one needs. The good news is that our residents only pay for the services they actually need. 

This is one of those tricky questions that only you can answer. It’s important to do your research before coming to a final decision. But we can tell you that as the disease progresses, the amount of time, energy and resources required to provide quality care will increase. This often creates more stress for the caregiver and could compromise the otherwise high quality of life your loved one could enjoy in a memory care community.

Our communities incorporate several features to help keep your loved one safe, like including emergency alert systems in each apartment. The majority of our communities also have enclosed outdoor courtyards so residents can explore in a secure environment.

Many caregivers think that a private suite is always the better option for their loved one, but research has shown the value of companionship for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. Sharing an apartment with a roommate can sometimes give residents a greater sense of purpose and lead to deep and lasting friendships. Companion suites can also be more budget-friendly!

Most memory care communities provide educational materials and outreach for families exploring senior living options, but you still need to do your research. Consider what specific items are on your wish list, taking into consideration your loved one’s individual needs and any activities, treatments or accommodations that you believe is important.
