In brief: Optimize functioning.
Specialized memory care is set up to help people with dementia be the most functional that they can be.
The idea is to compensate for someone's impairments by predictable schedules, a peer group, and easy availability of assistance with adequate supervision for safety. Look for a place that will work for someone with brain problems, not for a place that would have worked for the person before that.
