Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a difference between Memory Care retirement homes and dementia care?
Memory Care and dementia care homes in Kelowna are often seen as interchangeable, as they both focus on providing specialized support for individuals living with cognitive functioning challenges. While Memory Care encompasses a broader range of experiences, dementia care specifically addresses the unique needs of those affected by different forms of dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease.
What is the goal of Memory Care?
The primary goal of Memory Care is to enhance the health and wellness of individuals living with cognitive challenges. By providing safe and engaging environments, Memory Care programs aim to foster holistic well-being for residents. This personalized approach allows everyone to maintain their strong sense of identity and purpose while receiving the specialized support they need.
How does Memory Care differ from Assisted Living?
While Assisted Living supports seniors with daily tasks and personal well-being, Memory Care offers this standard plus specialized services to meet the unique needs of those with different forms and degrees of dementia. Our Memory Care community provides a higher level of support designed with features and programming to promote cognitive health and engagement. While Assisted Living may be suitable for those who require minimal to moderate support, Memory Care offers the necessary resources and environment to ensure joyful living for our residents.
