It is important to be furnished with the right information before you go ahead and decide on the most ideal senior living option for yourself or a loved one. If you need clarifications to any of your inquiries, feel free to reach out to us today at TerraBella Spartanburg or refer to our senior living FAQ below.

What Is Senior Assisted Living?

Assisted living provides accommodation and common spaces for older adults who do not have the capacity to tend to their daily needs. Assisted living features a home-like social setting where residents get to lead a content and carefree retirement while receiving assistance for their daily living activities and specialized care for their basic medical needs.

Is an Assisted Living Retirement Community the Same as a Nursing Home?

The key difference between nursing home care and assisted living is the setting that the care programs are facilitated in. Assisted living mainly offers personal care in a home-like, social setting whereas nursing home care is delivered within a clinical setting for residents with greater medical needs.

Memory care is ideal for older adults who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other memory-related conditions. The senior living option enables residents to live in a community that delivers continuing care, assistance, and social interaction within a supportive and supervised retirement environment.

Who Should Consider Senior Memory Care?

Older adults with dementia exhibit various behavioral changes that can affect their daily life. By living in a memory care community, this group of older adults will be able to receive specialized care that addresses their personal and medical needs on a professional level. If you notice a loved one experiencing changes in behavior, disorientation, and confusion that endanger their physical safety, incontinence, and a decline in physical health, it is best to consider relocating them to a memory care community so they get the care and support they need.

How Is Senior Assisted Living Different from Memory Care?

Our assisted living program is designed to provide residents with socialization opportunities alongside offering specialized care to address residents’ personal and basic medical needs. Our memory care program caters to residents with memory-related conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and other kinds of dementia. There are specific activities that help memory care residents slow down the progression of their medical condition and improve their quality of life.
