After receiving a dementia diagnosis how long will my loved one require memory care at Cardinal Court?
Alzheimer’s dementia is a lifetime diagnosis. Most residents can do well with part-time in-home care (often provided by a family member or home health care providers) for a period of time ranging from a few months to a few years following initial diagnosis.
However, because Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease, your loved one’s needs will continue to increase over time, making full-time care in a memory care facility, such as Cardinal Court, a necessity. This care can range from 2.5 years to up to 10 years depending on your loved one’s overall health and wellness in addition to the progression of their disease. Back to Questions
