Colorado memory care offers the needed support and personal care services to seniors facing the limitations caused by memory loss. As Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, many seniors find they can manage their needs in the early stages with in-home care and/or adult day care services. However, as the memory loss increases and begins to affect their ability to safely handle everyday living tasks, residential care in an assisted living facility becomes more appropriate. Some assisted living facilities offer memory care in addition to their regular personal care services, often times separating residents into different wings for safety, while some facilities are designed to care only for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. In the late stages of dementia, a nursing home may be more suitable to provide round-the-clock medical care as needed.
