Alzheimer and Dementia Care

Residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia need specialized care. Assisted Living Facilities offer services and separate facilities for residents with early onset symptoms, but because of the progressive nature of the disease, it may become necessary to transfer the resident to another facility that provides the appropriate care.

Facilities specializing in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and dementia should provide a treatment plan that considers not only the resident’s medical needs, but also the needs of the entire family with social services, professional consultations and individualized treatment reviews. Within the facility emphasis should be placed on providing a calm, soothing environment that is sensitive to the needs of the patient.
