What advantages does a memory care facility like Ashley Gardens offer versus in-home care?
Both memory care and in-home care can be highly effective solutions for the safety risks that accompany cognitive decline. Those who choose a memory care facility realize the following benefits compared to those who choose in-home care:
• Memory care facilities must meet stringent guidelines in all aspects of care including nutrition, safety, management of medical conditions, cleanliness, staffing levels, and are surveyed frequently
• Memory care communities are designed with resident safety in mind, which means slip-resistant flooring, handrails, larger bathrooms and bedrooms, and the removal of safety risks (like stoves).
• Memory care communities are secure so your loved one is protected from the risks associated with wandering.
• While Meals On Wheels can provide one meal per day for in-home residents who qualify, memory care residents receive three well-rounded meals and snacks every day.
