Maryland Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Any good dementia care service should be more than just providing a room and a meal for residents. While some once considered nursing homes and other specialized treatment facilities as last resorts and locations for older seniors who can no longer care for themselves, the best memory care communities in Maryland no longer adhere by that mentality, and you, as a caring family member or friend of a loved one with Alzheimer’s, shouldn’t demand anything less.

Dementia care has come a long way in the last couple of decades, now offering a much more diverse range of programs and activities to stimulate brain activity and keep the individual living a life they are accustomed to. Memory care units in Maryland assist with forms of dementia like:

  • Alzheimer’s: The most commonly referred to type of dementia due to its severity, Alzheimer’s is troubling and its middle to later stages often require 24/7 monitoring that most families are incapable of providing on their own, no matter how much they care for a loved one. Between 60 to 80 percent of dementia are caused by Alzheimer’s.
  • Vascular Dementia: The second most common type of dementia. Symptoms can appear slowly or rapidly, and are similar in many ways to Alzheimer’s.
  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies
  • Parkinson’s
  • Frontotemporal Dementia
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease
  • Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

After a diagnosis has been made, it is worth pursuing a dementia care home in Maryland to discuss possible forms of treatment and how a permanent residential care facility can assist with a variety of daily activities and functions, including meal servings and housekeeping.
