Aging & Memory: Memory Care Community Daytona Beach, Florida

what is a memory care communityAging — it’s a common denominator that unifies us all, every person on the planet, and it’s a wonderful facet of the journey called life. With age comes wisdom, and seniors have a lot to give to the young minds of generations that follow. Take a moment if you can, to remember a valuable lesson you learned from your grandmother or grandfather when you were a small child. Remember the stories they shared and how those lessons propped you up, gave you confidence, and helped you meet the challenges you faced. You probably held onto those lessons, and memories, for your entire life. We have a lot to learn from seniors, indeed. But as aging occurs, sometimes cognitive problems can develop that may put you in a position to now give back to your aging family member when they need you most. Learn more about what is a memory care community and how can it help handle some of these challenges.

When dementia or Alzheimer’s sets in, it can be a terrifying time for your aging family member. Suddenly, things they took for granted, such as driving to the grocery store, or taking an evening walk, can become disorienting — even dangerous. Imagine the fear you’d feel if you were out having a nice walk, but then it gets dark and you’re lost because you cannot remember how to get back home. Imagine your panic if you were to realize much later that you had started cooking with an open gas flame and then simply walked away, forgetting that you had left an open flame unattended. Would you be able to trust yourself again? Would you live in fear that these slips of memory were becoming so severe that you could accidentally bring harm to yourself, or someone you love?

These are frightening scenarios, but they are unfortunately quite real, and possible, when dementia or Alzheimer’s takes hold. So, when you see the signs, it’s time to talk to a doctor, to get a full physical workup and understand what needs to be done to keep your aging family member safe. The bad news is, there is no cure for dementia or Alzheimer’s as of yet. The good news is, however, that treatments are available that can perhaps slow the advancement of dementia or Alzheimer’s in those who have mild to moderate cases. Memory Care communities allow you to be proactive, instead of reactive when handling cases of memory loss in a loved one.

When it’s time to consider memory care in Florida, you can take comfort in the fact that there are memory care communities with skilled team members who are trained for the specialized care. Those suffering from cognitive impairment can lead lives that thrive and are filled with joy. Memory care communities are there simply to keep things on track for your loved family member.
