Memory Care in Ventura County is a specialized type of health care designed for individuals with memory deficiencies such as, dementia and Alzheimer’s. As dementia or Alzheimer’s progresses, your loved one may be more likely to experience difficulty with remembering names or tasks, holding coherent conversation, or addressing daily needs such as personal hygiene. Caregivers usually feel somewhat torn between putting their loved one in an institution and continuing to provide in-home care. While in-home care has the benefits of your loved one feeling comfortable in their usual settings, many people have jobs and daily tasks to attend to that make care-giving very difficult during the day.
How Can Memory Care Help?
The Memory Care Unit at Oxnard Family Circle is a Ventura County based day program that provides a happy medium between in-home care and an institution. While your loved one can enjoy the comfort of their own home in the evenings and weekends, caregivers can be provided with the comfort of knowing that their loved ones are being taken care of in our specialized Memory Care Unit during the day.
