It can be difficult to know when it’s time for assisted living or memory care. Daily tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming can become more difficult as we get older, and many seniors struggle with memory loss. If you’re not sure if it’s the right time to look into assisted living communities, consider these points:
If your loved one is having difficulty completing daily tasks on their own, it might be time for assisted living. Assistance from caregivers in an assisted living community can make life much easier!
When Is It Time For Memory Care?
If your loved one is showing signs of memory loss or dementia, they might need memory care. Memory care communities like Proveer at Grande View offer specialized care and support for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia.
If you’re not sure if it’s the right time for assisted living or memory care, talk to your loved one’s doctor. They can help you assess your loved one’s needs and make recommendations. Some common signs that assisted living or memory care may be a good fit for your loved one are:
- Difficulty bathing, dressing, or eating
- Being overwhelmed with housekeeping, laundry, yard work, or home maintenance
- Trouble managing bills and finances
- Increased isolation or loneliness
- Exhibiting common signs of dementia, such as forgetting familiar people or places, repeating questions, or getting lost in familiar surroundings.
Assisted living and memory care communities can offer a great deal of support for seniors. For example, communities like Proveer at Grande View offer assistance with activities of daily living, social and recreational activities, transportation, and 24-hour security.
