How does the community’s design affect my loved one’s care?
Standalone memory care communities offer greater security for your loved one, without feeling confining or restrictive. People with dementia enjoy walking and visiting with neighbors, but the confusion they may experience can result in wandering into harm’s way.
Memory care communities are designed with contrasting colors, accent walls, and circular corridors, as well as outdoor fenced gardens with pathways that lead to doors. All of these features help a resident with dementia navigate their way around the community. The design of standalone memory care communities creates a pathway so that walking becomes purposeful and fulfilling.
