Patients with dementia require special care. This can be especially difficult for both the patient and their loved ones. We find that dementia patients are typically less resistant to receiving assistance with personal care needs from a caregiver than from a family member. Our staff works with the resident’s family to establish a safe, comfortable environment. Within this nurturing atmosphere, we use visual cues and simple as a substitute for mental processes in decline.
To care for guests living with dementia, we employ a specialized staff and use innovative activities in safe and comfortable accommodations designed specifically for guests with Alzheimer’s and other memory/dementia issues.
Dementia care services:
- Staffed 24 hours a day
- Wanderguard system
- Activity therapist plans appropriate daily activities, thereby decreasing chances of difficult patient behaviors.
