Types of Facilities in Newark

The size of a memory care facility in Newark can vary from a small, residential “Board and Care” home to a large, resort-hotel style community.

 

A. Small Memory Care Facilities

Small Board and Care Homes in Newark can accommodate residents suffering from memory loss and are diagnosed with Dementia (Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, etc.). These facilities are regular residential homes in your neighborhood that have been converted to care for 6 to 10 senior residents. These care homes are licensed by Delaware’s Department of Health & Social Services, Division of Long Term Care Residents Protection and permitted by the City of Newark.

 

Types of Residents

Memory Care Residents in these board and care homes prefer a “home-like” intimate setting that they are used to at home. While there are many small residential care homes in Newark that provide activities, pet and music therapy, fitness programs and more, these residents prefer to be with a smaller group of seniors. If your Love One has a tendency to wander, first check with the facility owner or administrator to review their resident safety protocol and procedure. Since safety is their number one priority, you may want to compare with other care homes in Newark or also consider a large community with a secured Memory Wing.
