Where Can I Find A Memory Care Facility Near Me?

Receiving a dementia diagnosis can be devastating. It’s possible that you already knew it was coming or maybe it caught you by surprise. Either way, the news does not make it easier. Dementia is defined as a chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning. Depending on what stage you are in, dementia affects your memory, communication, speech, focus, concentration, reasoning, judgment, and visual perception. For those with Dementia and Alzheimer’s,  memory care can be a great option and provide several benefits. Memory Care is just like an assisted living community, except their entire programing is geared for those with memory impairments. One of the most frequent questions we are asked is “Where can I find a memory care facility near me?” There are several facilities near Orlando or Maitland, FL perfect for those seeking this type of senior living in the local area.

However, a common misconception we hear from families is that their loved ones living with Dementia need to be Baker Acted and possibly put in a psych ward or nursing home. While some families are completely against the Baker Act, others do not realize the effects of it or alternative options that can be taken. This is why education is crucial and something North Star Senior Advisors would like to address.

Thanks to dementia care training such as Certified Dementia Practitioners, we now know that much disruptive behavior among dementia sufferers is actually from inadequately trained individuals that simply do not realize what they are doing to trigger such behavior. With improved and specialized training, this type of approach can ultimately be avoided. All Memory Care staff must undergo some form of Dementia Training, and many do become Certified Dementia Practitioners like all Senior Advisors are here at North Star Senior Advisors. We take pride in ensuring each team member completes this expert training so we can better assist you and your loved ones who are going through such a sensitive and urgent time.

It’s also important to know that seniors interested in memory care facilities near Orlando can expect to pay an average of $5000 per month but this typically includes the cost of care. There are some memory care communities that are less starting from $4200 and up and there are some that do charge extra for care if they need help with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). This is the type of care that falls into bundled packages or levels of care. It can also be charged in an a la carte fashion. ADLs include bathing, dressing, toileting, and assistance with transferring to and from the bed into a wheelchair or walker.

North Star Senior Advisors can guide you every step of the way and help narrow down the options based on your loved one’s budget, care needs, location, and culture. We partner with memory care communities near and around Lake Mary, FL, and have a great understanding of each type to present options that can ultimately accommodate your loved one’s level of care.
