When is it time to move to a memory care in Singapore?
It's a little tricky to determine when it's the right time, considering that everyone is in different circumstances. Generally, assisted living is a good choice for seniors who require assistance with the daily tasks of life, like hygiene, dressing, or managing medication. Community life is also ideal for seniors who want to live in a place that provides social engagements with people in their same stage of life.
What care options are available?
Red Crowns offers both long-term and short-term skilled nursing care services for those with memory loss as well as coordination of hospice and other care services.

Independent living gives active seniors the benefits of residing at home without having to worry about home maintenance, housekeeping chores and cooking. Residents experience educational, cultural, spiritual, social and fitness opportunities through our programming.
Assisted living is most suitable for seniors who need help with everyday tasks such as dressing, bathing, eating meals, and taking medications. It also applies to those with specific care plans to address fall risk, poor nutrition or other individualized needs. These needs are diverse and may vary from one resident to another which is why each person has his or her own Individualized Service Plan (ISP) that details their care needs and preferences.

We also have a brief Care Questionnaire to help understand the different types of needed care.
