How Is Memory Care Different from Assisted Living?

Assisted living facilities offer help with activities of daily living, such as dressing or eating assistance. Memory care facilities do the same thing but offer special programming for people with memory loss. These communities have wayfinding signage throughout to help seniors navigate the community, keep structured schedules to prevent confusion and use wandering prevention systems to keep seniors safer. Staff members receive special training to assist older adults with memory loss in a safe, supportive way.
