Memory care furniture refers to furniture products, including seating and casegoods, that are designed to assist in the care of patients in memory care environments. Furniture for residents in need of dementia care and Alzheimer’s patients are built with safety, durability, and comfort in mind. Understanding the differences between the varying levels of care that can be offered to residents in senior living communities is important. Caregivers and family members may often ask “what is a memory care community” when researching the best care options for a loved one. Memory care environments differ from standard assisted living communities in that they are carefully designed with the unique needs of residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia in mind. Memory care units come equipped with furniture and casegoods that help ensure the comfort and safety of residents, while also placing emphasis on durability and infection control. Long term and memory care furniture solutions designed for memory care can help relax residents while also reducing the risk of injury or discomfort.
