While some Connecticut memory care facilities are home only to residents with memory loss, memory care services can be provided in a variety of environments. During the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, in-home care or visits to an adult day care center may provide enough supervision during the day to keep seniors safe and occupied while a family caregiver is at work or school. As the disease progresses and the senior requires more help with life’s daily activities, such as dressing, cooking or handling medications, a residential assisted living or memory care community becomes more appropriate. For seniors in the late stages of Alzheimer’s who may have lost physical abilities and/or are challenged by additional medical conditions, a nursing home can provide around-the-clock skilled nursing care from trained medical personnel.
