McKnight Place provides a person-centered approach that’s designed to help Memory Care residents feel a sense of belonging and purpose, while still preserving their identity and individuality. Our memory care residents live in a safe and secure apartment-like environment surrounded by their peers and nurturing staff members. They will also participate in daily, research-based skill building activities, while also enjoying hobbies and pursuing their passions.
What is it?
Where Assisted Living is for seniors who are relatively independent, Memory Care is a specialized level of assisted care for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Memory care communities feature safe and secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. Staff are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss. In addition, residents will participate in find programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities.
Is it right for me/my family?
Deciding when to consider memory care is a very personal decision. Everyone’s situation is different. People experience dementia and memory loss in different ways, which can make it difficult to know when the time is right to consider professional care. But, there are a few things you should think through if you’re considering memory care for yourself or a loved one.
Caring for an aging loved one isn’t always easy, and it can be especially challenging when they have a condition that progresses over time. If a family member is forgetting personal hygiene like bathing, changing clothes, or taking their medication, or if they lose interest in activities they used to enjoy, or they seem withdrawn and don’t want to socialize with friends, and if you are worried about their safety, It’s time to consider memory care. McKnight Place can provide a great amount of relief and support for caregivers and their loved ones.
What is McKnight Place’s approach?
We are committed to person-centered care and focus on dedicated dementia and Alzheimer’s care for residents of all cognitive abilities. We get to know our residents and their families so we can develop a personal plan to best address every need.
McKnight Place Memory Care’s Forget-Me-Not care program focuses on the interests and abilities of each resident. Our practices are built on knowing resident’s strengths and customizing an active care program accordingly. We empower residents and enable them to succeed in life through social interaction, special events and trips, or any one of our many engaging, therapeutic activities.
How much does it cost?
The cost for memory care covers daily care, apartment, social activities, meals and so much more. Because our residents are unique individuals, we work together with their families and healthcare providers to design a personalized care plan.
