Baptist Memory Care Center Services
Our Memory Care Center services are designed to connect individuals who may be suffering from Alzheimer's, dementia and other memory related issues, and their caregivers with free screenings and other community resources.
What is dementia?
Dementia is not a specific condition; it's a term that represents a range of symptoms including memory loss. In order to be diagnosed with dementia a patient needs to have at least two of the symptoms: memory loss, communication and language impairment, inability to focus, problems with vision, or ability to reason.
What is Alzheimer's?
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia. This disease presents itself in memory loss, and changes to behavior and how a patient thinks. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease where symptoms worsen over time.
At the Baptist Memory Care Center our licensed clinical social worker provides free memory screenings by appointment and no referral is needed. We share results of a memory screening with caregivers and primary care physicians, as appropriate, to keep their whole care team informed and up to date.
An important part of our memory care services is resource networking. Our social workers can help guests and their caregivers find resources for local home care, respite care, day care, driving safety, community events, emotional guidance, and other related needs.
Our Memory Care Center staff provides support for our guests and their caregivers as they go through emotional and everyday life changes. Our support services include caregiving classes, community outreach services, support groups, and advanced care planning in addition to other services.
