Several of our care coordinators are certified dementia care practitioners and we have registered nurses on staff who specialize private duty nursing care for people with dementia.

What is Dementia 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 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.
How Dementia Care Can Help
Our specially trained dementia care and Alzheimer's home care specialists will:
- Help maintain a safe environment for the client.
- Engage the client in activities that can stimulate the senses, such as music.
- Provide meals and bathing assistance.
- Support the client and family through the changing behaviors often seen with dementia.
We customize our Alzheimer's home care and dementia care to meet each client’s special needs, taking into consideration his or her health and ability. Depending on the client’s needs, we can provide compassionate care whenever it is needed, for just a few hours a week or full-time, in-home care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of care providers coordinates responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
