When Is It the Right Time for Memory Care?

Knowing when it is the right time for moving to a memory care community, supportive care for people with dementia or other major cognitive changes, can feel like a big responsibility. People with milder memory changes may be able to live independently or in a community with a lower level of care, and not necessarily require this type of care. Often, memory care is part of a transition from an assisted living facility or skilled nursing care

Following are some signs that it is time for your family member to transition to a memory care community:

  • Personality changes.
  • Confusion.
  • Incontinence or feeding difficulty.
  • Safety concerns.

At our memory care community in Austin, we can help you decide what living situation is best for your family member’s needs. Our team of professionals have extensive experience helping individuals and their families navigate these transitions.

How Should I Talk to My Loved Ones About Memory Care?

The transition to memory care can be challenging for both the person receiving care and their family members. It is best to let the conversation unfold slowly to give your family member time to adjust to the idea. Begin by expressing your concerns about safety and wellness. People with memory problems like familiarity and routine, so it’s normal if your relative does not want to move. Involving the person in some aspect of the decision-making can help to preserve autonomy and dignity. In the end, it is important to convey the decision comes from a place of love and concern, as many older adults worry about becoming a burden to their family members.

Long-term care insurance often covers memory care facilities. The specifics vary by policy type, so it is best to talk to the insurance provider if your relative has this type of insurance. Ask about daily benefit levels, how long the policy will pay, and whether there is a maximum lifetime coverage limit. In many cases, relatives pay for memory care using a combination of the above options.
