Common Questions About Memory Care

Memory care at Friendship Village of South Hills offers specialized services for individuals with cognitive challenges, such as Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Unlike assisted living, which assists with day-to-day activities, our memory care ensures heightened safety, security, and therapeutic engagements tailored to each resident's unique needs. Our setting encourages individuality while fostering a sense of accomplishment and well-being.

Every member of our dedicated team undergoes thorough training to understand and cater to the distinctive needs of our residents. They invest time in understanding your loved one's background, personal preferences, and daily rhythms. This deep, personalized connection fosters positive engagements, may minimize behavioral challenges, and often enhances overall well-being, potentially reducing medication needs.

Dementia is a broad term that describes cognitive decline symptoms impacting daily life functions. These symptoms can result from various conditions or diseases. Alzheimer's, on the other hand, is a specific degenerative brain disease and is the most prevalent cause of dementia. It progressively impairs memory, starting with recent memories and, over time, affects long-standing ones.
