How Do I Know When It’s Time for Memory Care?
This is one of the questions we hear the most from families inquiring about placement. Hopefully this list will at least give you a general idea of when it’s time for placement or close to it. We’ve tried to make it more specific than other resources you may find, as most of it is based on actual cases we have worked with over the years. An advantage these cases provide is hindsight; seeing the whole picture of when actions were taken, when they weren’t, and what the end results were.
Hopefully this list of signs has helped you know if it’s time to seek help. Please keep in mind these are general indications of a need to talk to a health care professional. Each person comes with an individual set of symptoms and circumstances. If you would like a free assessment and/or consultation by an RN experienced in dementia, please contact Prairie Senior Cottages. Memory care is our specialty.
