What types of specialized programming are available at a Memory Care facility that aren’t available at a traditional nursing home?
As dementia progresses, it may become harder and harder for people to engage with their environment. Standalone memory care communities provide activities centered around sensory stimulation, such as touch and sound, in order to engage all five senses and encourage connection to the community.
Both nursing homes and memory care communities plan weekly events and outings to entertain and stimulate their residents. But only memory care communities plan events specifically for residents with memory challenges, which are intended to nurture cognitive function as well as provide socialization.
