Memory care assisted living communities are usually set up with one of two living arrangements for their residents.  One is where everyone lives together commingled – people of all different cognitive abilities live together in one big building and aren’t separated based on their memory issues.  The other is where people are grouped in smaller groups or neighborhoods and live with people who have similar cognitive abilities – they are limited to their part of the building and unable to travel to other areas where people with either higher and lower cognitive abilities live.  As for the other arrangement – the .5 –  – that’s when the memory care community is a smaller part of a larger assisted living community.  What arrangement is better? I will discuss that and more in this episode of the podcast.

Thanks so much for listening and all the best.
