One of the most important memory care services is to provide specialized dining to residents living in memory care communities. This involves using special types of plates and cutlery that prevent your loved ones from injuring themselves while eating. At the same time, experienced chefs will prepare nutritious meals that have all the vitamins your family members need. For example, people living with neurodegenerative diseases might lack the vitamin B complex and the chefs will thus put an emphasis on ingredients containing these vitamins to improve their health.
Constant Care and Supervision
Having constant, round-the-clock supervision for your loved ones in memory care communities is essential for their wellbeing. All memory care rooms incorporate surveillance cameras to ensure that your loved ones live a comfortable and peaceful life. In the case of an emergency such as wandering or panic attacks, a trained team member will immediately take action to help your loved one. At the same time, some memory care rooms incorporate door alarms to alert team members if someone is leaving the room unexpectedly.
Activities That Enhance Memory
You might also be happy to find out that memory care communities emphasize a plethora of entertaining activities that help to enhance the memory of your loved ones. For example, playing a musical instrument, learning new skills, or solving simple puzzles can help with your loved ones’ memory retention. These activities stimulate the brain to create new connections between neurons, thereby helping to boost the memory of your family members. At the same time, certain physical activities such as walking, stretching or using the treadmill can also boost brain function in the long run.
If one of your family members is living with neurodegenerative diseases, you’re probably aware that not only do they require individualized attention, but also special medications. Fortunately, the experienced team members working in memory care communities offer exceptional medication management services. Not only will they make sure that your loved ones receive their medications on time, but such communities also collaborate with a multitude of pharmacies and drug stores. This means that procuring the right medications is never a problem and it takes a worry off your shoulders as well.
