4 Ways Memory Care Can Help Your Loved One, Northwest Travis, Texas

If your loved one is struggling with dementia, Alzheimer’s, or another memory disorder, caring for them on your own can be difficult. While there are plenty of retirement communities to choose from in Austin, not all of them offer memory care designed specifically for those struggling with memory disorders. At The Health Care Center at Longhorn Village in Austin, TX, their experienced staff understands the unique needs of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.

The team at The Health Care Center at Longhorn Village has put together a list of some of the benefits of memory care:

  • Memory careEncourages Community Interaction: Memory care facilities do not isolate individuals with memory disorders. Instead, they encourage residents to interact with one another, build relationships, and become a part of the community. This often results in better quality of life and keeps residents happier.
  • Complete Medical Care Provided: Rather than forcing your loved one to leave the nursing home anytime they need to see a doctor, they’ll be able to get the care they need in a familiar place. This reduces stress and anxiety for many patients suffering from memory disorders.
  • Reconnects Them With Old Hobbies: While a general nursing home will provide complete care for your loved one, memory care helps them stay connected to old hobbies and even develop new ones. For many seniors, this boosts morale and enriches their lives in a positive way.
  • Facility is Monitored & Staffed 24/7: Since dementia and Alzheimer’s can cause individuals to become confused and disoriented, even in familiar surroundings, memory care facilities are monitored 24-hours a day by trained and experienced staff members ready to help your loved one should they need it. You won’t have to worry about them getting lost or injured due to a lack of supervision.

Memory disorders are hard on the entire family. Moving your loved one to the assisted living facility at The Health Care Center at Longhorn Village can help take away some of the burden. Visit their website for more information and call (512) 382-4664 to schedule a tour.
