What are Memory Care products?
Memory Care products are designed to provide more manageable senior care environments for elderly individuals suffering from dementia and other cognitive conditions.
Why are Memory Care products so important for senior care residents?
Dementia slowly changes seniors over time so the world they once knew becomes foreign. Adjustments need to be made to their care surroundings in order to accommodate their new perspective. Product specifications can help elderly residents adjust to their Memory Care environments.
Darker mats or rugs may appear to residents as a hole in the ground, and busy patterns tend to lead to more confusion for seniors with dementia. Opt for lighter, solid fabric colors for fall mats and gait belts to make them easier for seniors to visibly identify and understand.
Lower seat-to-floor positioning chairs with tilt-back seats allow for foot propulsion to help keep residents safe from falls, making them ideal for more active, mobile seniors. A rocking mechanism on pedal chairs can help calm residents if they become agitated.
Amid COVID-19, there has been a 20% increase in falls 1 for Memory Care residents. Now communities can take the guesswork out of unwitnessed falls with SafelyYou’s result-driven AI fall technology .

How can you choose the right Memory Care products?
