The Palms offers luxury apartment style living for memory care patients who live in a spacious area with plenty of amenities and activities. The amount of space in our common areas is so gratuitous our memory care residents are unaware they are in a secured area.
In memory care facilities, residents benefit from activities that are specifically designed to improve cognition and stimulate their memory. These activities may include puzzles, reminiscing exercises, music therapy, new hobbies, group outings, live entertainment, etc. Additionally, daily routines are established to provide structure and familiarity for individuals with memory challenges. A consistent food and sleep schedule are integral in keeping memory care patients as independent as possible. This helps promote overall well-being and reduces confusion or agitation that can arise from changes in routine.
Knowing when it is time to seek memory care can be a difficult decision for families. Signs such as frequent forgetfulness, confusion about time or place, difficulty performing daily tasks independently, or safety concerns like wandering can indicate the need for specialized care.
