Advantages of Purpose-Built Memory Care Communities

When searching for a Memory Care community for your loved one, consider some of the following reasons that the purpose-built lifestyle at YourLife™ of Coconut Creek may be one of the best decisions you make.

  • A Singular Focus on Memory Care. Purpose-built Memory Care communities specialize in a singular kind of care. Here, our sole mission is to care for, inspire and enrich the lives of those with memory loss. Each aspect of our community, no matter if it’s dining or design to care or programming, caters to the unique needs of residents with memory loss.
  • Evidence-Based Design. Purpose-built Memory Care communities use scientific research to create architectural elements, floor plans and décor to benefit those with memory loss. Most Memory Care communities are smaller than assisted living options, allowing for easy navigation, however, we offer neighborhoods with their own common areas to emulate the feeling of home. Open floor plans and shorter hallways help residents move around easier and engage with other residents and team members.

Residents experience greater independence in purpose-built communities, which take into account wandering and offer indoor and outdoor security accordingly. Residents can move about freely without safety concerns.

  • Life Enrichment Programming. Purpose-built Memory Care communities create programs and activities to encourage strengths and abilities, promote cognitive function, stimulate reminiscence and provide joy and meaning.

Here, our YourStory Programming has its foundation in the personal tastes, preferences and interests of its residents. Programs are designed to match what each resident enjoys most and enables them to continue pursuing the hobbies and activities they love.

  • Specialized Staff Training. At purpose-built Memory Care communities, residents receive care from staff specially trained to manage the physical and cognitive challenges of memory loss and dementia. Care professionals fully understand their residents’ needs and know how to deliver assistance for optimal comfort and support.

Our expert caregivers not only receive dementia training, but continue to enhance their knowledge by keeping up with the latest research and treatment techniques while getting to know each resident personally and caring for them as an individual.
