Memory Support

As the number of older adults living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia continues to increase with any signs of slowing, as does Bethesda’s commitment to providing an exemplary care environment for these individuals.

For those who are living with the disease in the privacy and comfort of their own homes, Bethesda Senior Support Solutions, our unique in-home care option, can offer resources and experience to assist the caregiver (often the adult child) providing for their loved one.

Often, however, the care needs extend well beyond what can be provided in the private home. For this growing population, Bethesda has established dedicated Memory Support neighborhoods in most of our skilled nursing communities. Here, residents can live their lives comfortably and happily in a safe secure environment under the watchful eyes of staff experienced in addressing the needs of those living with dementia.

The residents in these neighborhoods truly are a “family.” They eat and participate in daily activities and outings together. In addition, therapeutic activities such as setting the table or folding laundry are commonplace, as familiar routines have been known to provide comfort and eliminate stress for these residents.

Located in Ellisville, Oakland and Oakville, Bethesda has a memory care community conveniently located for you and your loved one. Arrange for a tour and see for yourself!
