FAQs: Memory Care and Alzheimer’s Care in Plano, Texas
What is a memory care facility?
A memory care facility is similar to a nursing home but has specialized support for individuals with memory impairments like Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. However, the term “memory care facility” is largely out of date. Today, the best memory care facilities have evolved to do more than support residents through help with daily activities and cognitive exercises. They are now comfortable, active and home-like environments that help residents relax and enjoy their retirement. Spring Creek is a modern memory care community that focuses on comfort, empowerment and creating joy for residents and their families.
What is the difference between assisted living and memory care?
The difference between assisted living and memory care is the level and type of support required. Assisted living helps adults with daily tasks, but individuals are still largely independent. Memory care also assists individuals with daily tasks, but it also provides specialized and dementia care including programs and activities designed to improve cognition and keep residents with memory impairments active.

However, depending on the Medicare benefits you have, some dementia care needs may be covered, such as diagnostic testing or certain prescription drugs.

How can I find the right memory care for me?

You need to determine the type and level of support that you or your family member needs, as well as take into account how you expect the memory impairment to progress in the future. However, most memory care residents are happier if they select a memory care community that feels comfortable and home-like, versus a more traditional memory care facility, which can feel like its set in a more medical environment.
