An estimated 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, a progressive disorder that is the leading type of dementia. Individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias often require care and supervision that is provided in a 24-hour secure setting. Providing care for seniors with memory impairments can be challenging depending on the individual’s symptoms. Housing options can include an Assisted Living Community or a Memory Care Community. Bethesda’s Assisted Living Communities are ideal for residents with the beginning stages of dementia that are still independent without being a wander-risk. Bethesda Memory Care Communities provide the most intensive care, supervision, and monitoring that is available in a 24-hour secure environment.
Bethesda’s Senior Living Memory Care Communities help residents engage life through developing personal connections with residents and family members. We recognize that each individual will be affected differently with memory loss and it is our focus to provide an individualized program in a safe and stimulating atmosphere. Our compassionate staff works with each resident and family to create an environment where the residents can succeed and thrive while maintaining as much familiarity as possible. Small accomplishments, such as working on a memory book, baking, or even making a bed, can be highly therapeutic and encouraging.
Upon admission, our Health Services Directors meet with new residents and families to develop an individualized care plan with each resident to coordinate the delivery of services and care. The care plan, which includes an assessment of the residents physical and psychosocial needs, is reviewed and updated annually or as needs progress. If the resident should need occasional support or therapeutic services, we partner with outside agencies to provide the care and support needed to keep their lifestyle as independent as possible.
Bethesda’s private and semi-private Memory Care Communities offer private studio apartments and baths in a neighborhood setting. They feature comfortable lounges, family-style dining, and stimulating living rooms. The beautifully landscaped grounds provide a secure outdoor setting with continuous walking paths in a tranquil setting. Our communities offers a variety of enriching activities, life-skill areas, social settings, and wellness programs specifically designed to care for and support individuals with dementia and their families.
