The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville Debunks Myths Surrounding Memory Care

Category: Dementia Resources

Author: Shawn Klaas, Memory Care Director

There are several myths surrounding memory care, the specialized attention for individuals with memory impairments, such as Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It’s important to debunk these myths to promote a better understanding of memory care by providing accurate information to help families find the right level of care at the right time for their loved ones.

Our Memory Care Neighborhood encourages independence for those living with dementia. The engagement events we host provide meaningful interactions and goals that give purpose to one’s day. As we engage and develop an environment of independence our Neighborhood becomes more like a family.

Arrow Senior Living Memory Care leaders and teams gather a lot of information and conduct extensive fact finding to personalize an environment to meet the personal wants and needs of every resident. This gives residents the chance to engage in events and social interactions that line up with their personal interests.

Dementia isn’t something that touches only the lives of the elderly, it affects people of younger ages as well. There are no restrictions for the age of people who need memory care. It’s all about the person, not their age or diagnosis. The overall well-being of a person moving into memory care often is found to improve. With events that engage the mind at appropriate levels, and an environment that stimulates quality of life, the general outcome is improvement for those living with dementia.

As the Memory Care Director at The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville, I hope this information helps provide a better picture of an Arrow Memory Care Neighborhood. It is important to gather accurate data to dispel myths and make informed decisions regarding memory care for yourself or a loved one. Arrow Senior Living Memory Care Neighborhoods are full of life and joy. They are a place where individuals living with dementia can thrive and feel purposeful. Interested in learning more?
