Safety and security in memory care

As Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia progress, they can cause physical changes that negatively impact safety and security. Confused behavior, impaired judgment, difficulties with balance, and changes in hearing and vision all can contribute to challenges and potential danger for your family member.

When individuals with dementia continue to live on their own, they may experience additional threats to safety. Stairs, household chemicals, kitchen appliances, sharp objects and other hazards increase the risk of injury, and dementia may inhibit your family member’s ability to respond appropriately to emergency situations.

In a memory care community, your loved one can enjoy a safe, secure environment with a variety of personal touches that create a welcoming atmosphere. What are some of the ways the memory care neighborhood at New Pond Village provides for the safety and security of residents?
