At PPH, couples can stay together.

One major challenge with dementia is caretaker burnout. Since our memory care program is part of the PPH campus, married couples have options for staying together. One spouse can receive the support they need in memory care. At the same time, the other can live just a floor or two away in personal care or independent living. Spouses can dine together, visit each other and participate in activities whenever they wish.

With a compassionate and skilled team, we are dedicated to creating an environment for those facing memory-related conditions to receive the specialized care and attention they deserve, fostering an environment that promotes comfort, security and a sense of belonging.

In fact, many former employees and their family members move to PPH during retirement, which speaks volumes about the quality of the care and service we provide.

Q: What is memory care?
Memory care is a specialized type of care offered to seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other types of memory impairment. Memory care residents have a tendency to wander and are prone to feeling confused. Our Philadelphia memory care facility is designed to address the individual needs of those who require dementia care, Alzheimer’s care or other disorders related to memory loss in a residential setting. Our memory care neighborhood is architecturally designed to accommodate residents’ needs. Our staff are trained to serve and recognize the physical, social and spiritual needs of our residents with structured programs emphasizing self-dignity and designed to enhance overall quality of life.

Q: Who pays for memory care?
There are many ways to pay for memory care services depending on needs, preferences and available funding. Some of the most common ways residents pay for memory care are:

  • Private Pay: This type of payment is just what it sounds like. Private pay is using family income, savings, life insurance, reverse mortgages or other forms of personal finances.
  • Veterans Benefits: The Veterans Administration provides financial support to veterans and surviving spouses in need of memory care services.
  • Long-Term Care Insurance: Depending upon your policy, some Long-Term Care insurance may cover memory care. Ask your insurer.

Q: How do I know if my parent or loved one needs memory care services?
If your parent or loved one has not been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, or a form of dementia, but you think they may need memory care services, you should consult a doctor. Some questions to consider are:

  • Do they have trouble solving problems?
  • Are they able to perform normal daily tasks?
  • Do they have a hard time remembering the names or faces of friends or family members?
  • Can they recall recent conversations?
  • Are they forgetting to pay bills, take medicine or eat meals?
