If you have a family member or loved one that is dealing with Dementia or Alzheimer’s, this may hinder their ability to take care of themselves and accomplish day-to-day activities. Memory care assisted living can help improve quality of life and minimize daily stress. Martin Luther Campus uses Ebenezer's Dimensions® program to provide exceptional, compassionate care using evidence-based best practices.
1. Community and Activity
One large benefit to memory care assisted living over home care is socialization. In a memory care assisted living center, residents are given the opportunity to spend time with other residents, develop friendships and take part in activities that are put on by the memory care center. At the Martin Luther Memory Care Community, we offer engaging activities like painting, music-making, service projects and other group activities.
2. Specialized Care
Every resident is unique, so it’s important for a memory care center to create specialized care plans for each resident. Our memory care services are person-centered. We create care plans that are based on detailed assessments that consider the resident’s abilities, needs, preferences and personal history. We also provide cognitive assessments that results in development of approaches that match an individual’s level of cognition.
3. Nutritious Meals
Malnutrition is a growing problem among older Americans, especially for seniors who have difficulty swallowing. At Martin Luther Campus, we supply nutritious meals and specialized diets that cater to our residents’ needs. We ensure that they receive quality food and plenty of choices, so they can stay healthy but still be empowered to make decisions about their food.
If you have a loved one that has Dementia or Alzheimer’s and he or she still lives alone, you may worry about the possibility of your loved one getting lost or having a medical emergency. At Martin Luther’s memory care community, you won’t have to worry about the safety of your loved one. We offer 24-hour staffing and round the clock emergency response with controlled-access entries and secured outdoor areas. The safety of our residents is a top priority at Martin Luther Campus.
5. Assistance with Daily Living Activities
Many people with Dementia or Alzheimer’s begin to struggle with bathing, remembering to eat and doing basic chores around the house. One of the benefits of assisted living is having consistent, caring staff to help enforce a routine. This provides much-needed stability for seniors as well as practical support.
Memory care assisted living can make a world of difference in improving quality of life and mood. Learn more about Martin Luther Campus’ memory care services.

It's good to know that assisted memory care communities will supply nutritious meals to your loved one with a memory issue. My grandpa has dementia, and he often forgets to eat healthy and nutritious meals that he needs. We'll be looking further into his options for memory care communities to help him avoid malnutrition.

It's great to know that assisted care offers more than the treatment because it also opens the opportunity to spend time with other residents living in the facility due to the activities. A few months ago, my aunt was diagnosed with dementia, and our family wants to get the best care for her. We will certainly send her to an assisted memory home so that she can get the right attention and medical treatment.

The nursing staff is so good about it they will find her all over the building and safely take her back to her room!

I can see how socialization would be important for memory care assisted living. People who suffer from memory loss don't want to be alone. So having friendly faces around to help them feel cared for can go a long way.

En relación a la vejez, existe la percepción de que estos constituyen un freno para adaptarse a los cambios y progresos tecnológicos del país y del mundo, a la pérdida de capacidades mentales y físicas que no les permiten competir en un ámbito que puede resultarles inhumano, solitario y despersonalizado.

It's interesting when you said that joining in socialization could help people with dementia to adjust. A couple of days ago, my best friend told me about having a memory care consultation for his brother with dementia, and he asked if I had any idea what would be the best option to do. Thanks to this informative article, I'll be sure to tell him that it will be much better if he consults a trusted memory care service as they can provide proper treatment.
