Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care




Residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia need specialized 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 can provide more appropriate care.

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

Please visit the Area Agency on Aging of The Capital Area at www.aaacap.org for additional information on care for the elderly.
