15 Dec Dementia. Memory care. Is that part of assisted living?
Dementia. Memory care. Is that part of assisted living? The answer is, it could be. Here’s the reality: if somebody has severe dementia, if they’ve got severe needs when it comes to memory care, one of the main concerns is how are they are secured in the house. Somebody may tend to wander.
If the home has a wanderer, the doors need to be more secured. – Tweet this!
You can’t just lock all the doors and put bars on them. Can’t do that. What if there’s an emergency? They need to be able to get out. Typically, a home does not specialize in memory care or dementia; you don’t have to. Specializing in memory care or dementia is not for the typical assisted living, but if you do you will probably have to install magnetic locks.
The magnetic locks should have either a knob with a computer chip inside to allow somebody to come in, or a combination to use. If the sprinklers go off, if the alarms go off, the locks will be released so everyone could get out of the home safely. The answer is you could specialize in dementia-memory care; you would need to install special locks. Not typical in assisted living, but if you’d like to, you can.
