Memory Care

When is the right time for a resident to move from independent living to the memory care unit? The answer is…it depends. Everyone experiences dementia differently. Some can fully and comfortably live out their diagnosis in an independent living setting, even as they progress through the early stages of dementia. However, as the various stages of dementia progress, a better quality of life may necessitate moving from independent living to memory care. That decision can be difficult.

It may be even harder if they believe they’re doing just fine in independent living. Transitioning to memory care can offer significant benefits and safety that often improves the quality of life for one affected by dementia. At Abbeylawn, with two secured memory care floors in the same building, the transition can be easier on both the resident and their family.

Abbeylawn is home to the largest memory care unit in Durham region with both studio and one-bedroom suites, on two secure memory care floors.
Our memory care floors are specifically designed for those living with cognitive impairment who may require a secure environment, specialized compassionate care from consistent, dedicated staff.
Dementia and cognitive impairment can be very difficult to manage for families and caregivers and is typically hard to sustain for long periods of time as the disease progresses. Abbeylawn has helped many families navigate through the processes of transitioning their loved ones into a secured healthcare setting. Our experienced and highly trained caregivers provide the highest quality of care to residents.
