What are the Differences between Assisted Living and Memory Care?

When you and your parents have decided it’s time to explore senior living options, the decision of which type of facility is right for them can seem overwhelming.

It doesn’t have to be. By identifying the needs of your parents, you can find the right facility for your family.

 Assisted Living

If your parents want to remain independent, but receive a bit of help, an Assisted Living facility is likely the right fit.Your parents will have own apartment, with their own decorations, and can set their own schedule. At the same time, they won’t have to worry about daily chores or medication because the Kingston staff will handle these matters.

With regular social and recreational activities, your parents will always stay active and engaged. Should a medical emergency arise, Kingston has 24 hour staff that will be there immediately to help.

Memory Care

For seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, you can rest easy knowing that Kingston’s memory care communities are designed to meet their specific needs in a safe and comfortable environment.  The staff at Kingston is specially trained for all stages of memory impairment.  By providing around the clock care, our staff can meet the needs of all our patient’s.
