Maintaining Communication with Memory Care Teams

Having good communication when your loved one is dealing with memory loss is crucial, especially if you are their caregiver. But what happens when you are no longer their caregiver and are entrusting their care to someone else? When a loved one moves to a memory care community, it can be easy to think that you won’t have to worry about anything and that staff members will let you know of any issues they come across, but in order to ensure the best care for your loved one, it’s often a good idea to stay in-the-know and be a partner in their care team.
