What is Memory Care?

Some Senior Living residents (as well as some seniors who are living independently) develop Alzheimer’s disease, senile dementia, or other memory impairments that often cause anxiety due to confusion, as well as increased risk of personal harm. Memory Care is a service option for such residents, and all Mission Senior Living communities offer residents the opportunity to transition from Senior Living to Memory Care without a stressful relocation outside of the community. Memory Care neighborhoods within our communities have safety features such as alarmed doors, delayed egress, wandering monitoring systems, and staff trained to meet the special needs of those with memory impairment.

Our Memory Care communities provide congregate living with apartment-style rooms and common spaces for socialization, meals and activities. Assistance with a variety of activities of daily living (ADLs) is provided. A focus on routine, along with consistent life-enriching programming, is important for residents with dementia.

Our Memory Care

At Mission Senior Living, we recognize that individuals suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease require special care and services. We are passionate about helping each resident live life to the fullest, by engaging residents in activities and programming that are designed to maintain their independence and improve quality of life. Our Memory Care team members are specially trained to meet the unique needs of residents with dementia.

By working with each resident, their family, and medical providers, our team members design a personalized service plan to meet each resident’s care and service needs. Combining individualized plans with a safe secure physical environment allows residents to live life at the highest level possible.

Each Memory Care Community is connected to a Senior Living Community, as well as the greater community. We seek to integrate our residents with the larger community through our life enrichment activities. By using this approach, we help residents maintain a strong connection with their community as well as a sense of purpose, accomplishment and value.
