What to Consider About Memory Care in Oneonta

The town of Oneonta sits on the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and has a population over 14,000, 12 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. For seniors in the area who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, there are two memory care facilities that can provide specialized treatment.

The official name for these facilities in the state of New York is Adult Care Facilities. Many ACFs participate in the Electronic Dementia Guide for Excellence (EDGE) Project in order to improve the quality of life for residents with dementia. The program is designed with research-based techniques and practices that guide facilities towards best living practices in a flexible manner.
