The Differences Between Memory Care & Dementia Care

It’s difficult to watch a loved one begin struggling with their memory. The good news is that there are options to support your family member as their memory loss progresses. Both memory care and dementia care in Southeast Denver are excellent options to help your loved one stay healthy and happy. But what are the differences between these two forms of care?

At the end of the day, both memory and dementia care focus on maintaining or enhancing your loved one’s memory while helping them preserve their quality of life. Memory care focuses on helping individuals deal with the effects of neurodegenerative and memory-related conditions, including Alzheimer’s. Many people think of memory care as the early stage of dementia care, which focuses more on elderly individuals in the later stages of a formal dementia diagnosis. This option is an effective way to help these individuals live a safe and fulfilling life while having immediate access to the necessary support and care.
