Memory-related diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s can be challenging to cope with, both for the seniors affected and their loved ones. These conditions can lead to significant memory impairment, resulting in confusion, disorientation, and difficulty in completing everyday tasks. 

As such, senior move management companies have become increasingly popular to provide safe and secure relocation services for individuals moving to memory care. One of these services is space planning replication, which replicates an environment the patient is familiar with to reduce anxiety and confusion.  

In this article, we will explore the importance of space planning replication for memory care and how working with an experienced senior move management company like WayForth can benefit dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.

How can space planning replication benefit seniors? 

Seniors with memory conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s often face difficulties recognizing familiar surroundings and objects. However, replicating their living space can provide them with a sense of familiarity and security, ultimately reducing their stress levels and improving their quality of life. Recent studies have shown that this practice can also empower seniors to maintain their independence by decreasing their need for additional assistance in completing everyday activities.  

 New environments can be overwhelming for those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, leading to transfer trauma and issues like depression, anxiety, and loss of appetite. Planning out their new space and making it feel like home diminishes the risk of transfer trauma. For more information on transfer trauma, read our blog here! 

How can space planning replication help family members? 

Watching a loved one struggle with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be challenging to navigate, not to mention heartbreaking. However, space planning replication brings peace of mind to family members, knowing that their loved ones are comfortable and secure in their new space.  

This personalized service allows families to focus on spending quality time together instead of worrying about the transitional logistics and setup. Our professional organizers and movers work with the families to ensure that the senior is comfortable with the items that matter most to them.  

Why is it important to choose an experienced move management company? 

When choosing a senior move management company, you should select one experienced in memory care services. These companies should have a deep understanding of what the senior is going through and have the expertise to replicate their environment accurately.  

An experienced company will also know how to adjust the replicated environment to accommodate their needs and progression of the senior’s condition. Companies that specialize in helping Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients are dedicated to ensuring that the client is comfortable and has a decreased risk of transfer trauma.
