Does my loved one need a secure memory care facility?
Secure communities, such as Marshall Pines, are recommended when traditional independent living or assisted living communities would pose safety risks for residents. Your loved one might be safest in a secured community if he or she:
- has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, impacting their short-term memory and cognition
- has left home and been unable to find their way back before
- struggles with short-term memory and cognition when in new, unfamiliar settings
- has had trouble remembering important safety measures at home, like locking the door, turning the burner off, or putting the car in park
You don’t have to make this decision alone. Marshall Pines’ care planning team can review your loved one’s personal and medical history to help you determine the best living situation.
