Dementia and Alzheimer’s are conditions that can severely affect an individual’s mental state and memory. The early stages of these illnesses can usually be managed in an assisted living setting. That being said, these conditions have a tendency to progress overtime and may lead to the necessity of a higher level of care. Some facilities focus specifically on this type of care and can handle these issues as they progress, and others will recommend moving to a center that can accommodate your loved one’s issues. To avoid having to move your loved one around, you should fully understand the capabilities of the facility you choose in regard to memory-care. Doing so will make it easier on you and your loved one in the long run.
