About Our Dementia Care
Dementia care refers to the specialized care and attention given to dementia patients, whether their condition is caused by Alzheimer’s disease or any other condition. This includes support with daily living tasks and cognitive stimulation activities, provided by a team of trained caregivers, therapists, nurses, and physicians. The aim of dementia care is to provide targeted assistance for specific behaviors each resident has trouble with, such as wandering or Sundowners’ syndrome. Dementia care can improve comprehension, engagement, and quality of life in residents.
