Quality Memory Care Can Support the Whole Family

When your loved ones begin to show signs of memory loss, figuring out what to do next for them can be difficult.

When your loved ones begin to show signs of memory loss, figuring out what to do next for them can be difficult. You have to be able to trust the community you choose will care for them as your own family would. With quality memory care, you can have confidence that your loved one is in a safe environment and that they’re receiving the care that they need.

Quality memory care focuses on more than just the loss of memory among its residents. Emphasis is also put on their quality of life by providing programs and activities that encourage and inspire them. This allows residents to maintain their dignity while still enjoying a high-quality life.

The Mission at Agua Fria is proud to have the type of quality memory care that families can rely on. With more knowledge on what memory care is and knowing how it can support your family, quality memory care will become an appealing option to accommodate your loved one.

What is memory care?

Memory care is specifically geared toward helping those who have memory-impairing diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s. These units are typically exclusive to memory care residents, but they’re often within larger groups, such as senior living communities. Memory care residents have amenities available to them like lounges and dining rooms, as well as activity areas. With special safety rules and regulations and certified and licensed staff members, a memory care community is a secure and supportive place for memory-impaired people.

At Mission at Agua Fria, our memory care section is conveniently located on the ground floor, eliminating the need to travel between floors to access things like the community courtyard. Residents’ private studio apartments feature spacious bathrooms, walk- or wheel-in showers, ample closet space, and emergency response pull cords. We also have special programs for residents that incorporate exercise, art, music, and pet therapy.

How can it support the whole family?

It can be difficult to take good care of your loved one with memory loss at home. Your house may not be a safe enough environment, and you may have trouble finding quality at-home care services. For this reason, many people choose a memory care community for their loved ones to stay.

Knowing that your loved one is in a safe and secure environment at all times can provide both your family and your loved one with peace of mind. At the memory care community at Mission at Agua Fria, there’s 24-hour care staff on-site. We also take care of your loved one’s daily chores, such as housekeeping, daily trash removal, and apartment maintenance. This frees up your loved one’s time and gives them the ability to focus harder on their therapy or just enjoying their time.

If a memory care community seems like it would be a good fit for your loved one suffering from memory loss, you should request more information from the community you’re considering. Schedule an in-person meeting with the staff at Mission at Agua Fria to have your questions answered and to tour the community.
