What is Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our dementia care and Alzheimer's care services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
