How Routine Helps Seniors with Memory Loss

How Routine Helps Seniors Stay Calm and Comfortable

Personalized Routines for Residents at The Landing at Saco Bay

Dementia and Alzheimer’s cause not just memory loss but changes in behavior and personality. Feelings of sadness, worry, and fear are common for a person with a memory loss disorder, as are anger and depression. While these memory loss problems can’t be cured, in the case of dementia and Alzheimer’s, there are ways to manage memory loss and accompanying emotional distress.

One of the best things you can do for a person with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or another memory loss issue is to create a daily routine. Confusion may cause your loved one to become frustrated or scared, but structure and routine can help reduce anxiety. At The Landing at Saco Bay, creating comforting routines for our residents is exactly what we do.

Elements of a Good Routine 

First and foremost, a helpful routine for someone with memory loss involves times and activities. Regular times for waking up, bathing, dressing, and eating will all help create an effective routine. Attending to more specific details, like areas where the resident likes to sit and their favorite foods or clothing, can further help create a comforting sense of structure. According to the Alzheimer’s Project, each person should have a routine based on their preferences and interests.

The Landing at Saco Bay creates routines for residents to help them enjoy the hobbies and activities they love. More importantly, we create a place where they can thrive and feel at home.
