Considering a nursing career in memory care

Print Article

Nursing offers many choices, one choice that may be overlooked is a career working with older adults with cognitive impairment in a Memory Care community.

This option allows seasoned professionals and those new to nursing an opportunity to use and expand many skills including staff management, distributing medications, monitor reactions, management of respiratory issues, recognize changes in medical conditions and make key decisions in an emergency situations. Another important use of nursing skills in memory care is streamlining medical care and communications with care providers, families and outside agencies.
