Memory Care Might Be a Good Fit If…

Deciding when to choose memory care services for a loved one can be a difficult and emotional decision. There are a few items to consider that will help you decide if it’s time to start the conversation about memory care. 

If you are worried about your loved one’s security, notice a decline in personal care, or find them less accepting of your help, it might be time to talk to a Family Health West Memory Care specialist. 

It is also important to consider that you are cared for, too. Feeling burnout or feeling like you have less time and energy to care for yourself can indicate that memory care treatment might be a good fit for your loved one.

How to Choose Your Level of Care

It All Starts With a Conversation

When you hear the phrase assisted living, you may think about the old-fashioned nursing homes of the past. Today, senior living induces several types of care. The most common types include independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. 

Which type of care is best for your loved one? Our team is here to help you answer that question. When meeting with potential residents and their families, we develop an understanding of your individual needs. Then, we recommend a level of care that benefits you and your loved one. While we have created an environment that allows your loved one to be close to home, our facility needs to be the right fit for the resident and you as the caregiver. We are more than happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.
