When is it Time for Memory Care?

If your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you want them to get the proper care and support they need, when they need it – a sentiment our team at Villagio of Carrollton shares. Residents at our memory care community have access to a safe and structured environment designed to improve their well-being. But when does your loved one need this personalized, around-the-clock care? The following three signs can help you determine the right time for memory care.


3 Signs it is Time for Memory Care

1. Declines in Their Physical Health

As Alzheimer’s or dementia progresses, your loved one’s physical health may decline and prevent them from living safely in their home. Some of the most common physical signs that suggest memory support is needed include:

  • Neglected personal hygiene
  • Bruises or injuries they can’t explain
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Lack of food in their home

At Villagio of Carrollton, our highly trained caregiving team will provide your loved one with daily personal care, medication support and nutritious dining to elevate their health and safety.

2. Behavioral Changes

Cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, can change the way individuals see and interact with the world. Your loved one may grow confused and overwhelmed throughout the day as they increasingly lose their bearings and grow hesitant about partaking in daily activities like driving and social interactions. If their struggle with Alzheimer’s or dementia has triggered anxiety and caused them to withdraw from society, it’s time for memory support.

Villagio of Carrollton has a variety of life enrichment programs, from arts and crafts to pet therapy, that residents are encouraged to participate in. Regular engagement in these types of activities can calm your loved one and improve their emotional and social wellness.

3. Deterioration in Your Own Health and Wellness

Taking care of a loved one who has Alzheimer’s, dementia or another type of memory impairment can be difficult to manage, especially when they enter the mid and late stages of their disease. When the disease has progressed to the point where their care is all-consuming for you and impacting your own well-being, it’s time to move them into a memory support neighborhood.

As a resident at Villagio of Carrollton, your loved one will receive assistance with activities of daily living, assistance with medication management, a structured routine and enrichment programming they need. This level of care will provide you with peace of mind and give you a chance to relax and enjoy your time with your loved one again without the added stress of being their caregiver.
