There are many needs that may constitute choosing to move into an assisted living or memory care community. Someone who would benefit from assisted living, is a person who needs assistance with activities of daily living or ADLs.
Examples of ADLs include going to the restroom, bathing, walking, getting dressed, and eating; if you or your loved one need help doing any of these or similar activities, then it may be time to discuss the transition into an assisted living facility.
Memory care benefits specifically those suffering from Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive impairments. These different forms of memory loss often end up with similar symptoms that lead to needing long term care. Being able to ensure the safety of your loved one is often a leading factor to transitioning to long term care.
