Memory care in Hockessin, DE is a type of specialized care for those diagnosed with various types and levels of memory loss. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, the medical term for a decline in memory, thinking, decision-making, and reasoning.

Approximately 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, according to the National Institute on Aging. That number is projected to increase substantially in the coming years because the U.S. population is aging, which increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's.

What to expect in memory care facilities

Memory care facilities have registered nurses and a specially trained care team staff 24-hours in Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care. Each member of the care team provides supervision and has responsibilities to ensure the patient's care needs.

One of the biggest challenges is keeping patients safe from themselves and the world around them. Memory care facilities in Hockessin provide a secure and safe environment. Many dementia patients feel the need to wander or have the need to be somewhere. Alarmed doors and emergency call systems are in place for their safety. As well, they should feel comfortable and calm in their environment.

The National Cost of Memory Care

The cost for memory care depends on the location, the number of patients, and the services offered. The price would change because some memory care facilities specialize in advanced stages of Alzheimer's disease, whereas others function in the early stages of memory loss. In the United States, the average cost of a private room in a memory care facility is approximately $5,000 per month.

Is a Memory Care Facility an Option?

• Is the person with Alzheimer's or Dementia becoming unsafe in their current home?
• Is the health of the person with memory loss or my health as a caregiver at risk?
• Are the care needs of the person beyond my physical abilities?
• Am I becoming stressed, irritable, and impatient as a caregiver?
• Am I neglecting responsibilities to my family, work, and myself?
• Would the structure and social interaction at a memory care facility benefit the person?

If you have a loved one who needs a memory care facility, making this transition can be a stressful experience. You may feel guilty and wonder if you're doing the right thing.
