When is it Time To Move a Parent to Memory Care?

Making the decision to move a parent into a specialized Memory Care environment may be difficult. But it is important to consider whether or not it is possible to continue to provide the level of care needed in the person’s home.

The questions below, from the Alzheimer’s Association website, are ones to consider when determining if a move is a good option:

Is My Parent Unsafe in Their Current Home?

  • Are they getting lost in the neighborhood, or in the home itself?
  • Are you worried about the person wandering at night?
  • Is crossing the street safely an issue?

Is My Parent’s or My Own Health At Risk?

  • Are my parent’s care needs beyond my physical abilities or the abilities of my other parent?
  • Am I, or is my other parent becoming stressed from caregiving?
  • Am I neglecting work or family responsibilities in the process of caring for my mom or dad?
  • Would the structure and social interaction at a care facility benefit my parents? Sometimes the person will flourish in an environment with more structure and interaction with others.

Even if you plan ahead for a move, making this transition can be stressful. You may have an abundance of conflicting emotions. Regardless of where you choose to have the person cared for, it’s good to keep you focused on making sure your parent’s needs are met.
