HarborChase of Beavercreek Shares the Benefits of Mild Dementia CarePosted By HarborChase on March 8, 2022
Memory care is different for every person. For a person living with dementia, their level of care can depend on the area of the brain that has been affected, the extent of their memory loss, and the amount of assistance they need.
Mild dementia or “mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an early stage of memory loss or other cognitive ability loss (such as language or visual/spatial perception) (alz.org).” Someone living with mild dementia may still be able to complete most daily tasks and activities without assistance. They may require assistance only at certain times, such as at the beginning or end of each day, or they may need help on an as-needed basis, with regular check-ins throughout the day.
When Mild Dementia Care is Needed
Because dementia is progressive, there may come a time when someone living with mild dementia requires more care and support. However, throughout their memory care journey, a person living with dementia needs one thing above all else: trained associates and team members who can help them continue to live a purposeful, productive, and joyful life.
For older adults living with short-term memory loss or mild dementia, HarborChase Senior Living offers unique, safe, and compassionate mild dementia carecalled The Sound. Among its many benefits, The Sound delivers personalized mild dementia care, intentional daily programming, and transitional memory care support for residents who may ultimately move to our full memory care program, The Cove.
At HarborChase of Beavercreek, we deliver responsive and compassionate care throughout Beavercreek, Ohio, for those living with dementia. Our team is highlighting the benefits of this care and how we help those living with dementia lead active, full, and engaging lives.

Transitional Memory Care Support
Although The Sound provides many benefits for our residents, one of its most important and unique features is that it serves as a transitional memory care program. We are here to help individuals and families throughout their memory care journey, which often means transitioning from The Sound to The Cove at HarborChase of Beavercreek.
The Cove offers more in-depth memory care and support for residents living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
