Overcoming the Challenge
Differentiates Itself from Other Memory Care Services Available

Just as every person suffering from dementia is different, so is the approach to caring for your loved one with memory loss. Even though the person may seem to not be able to understand the things that are being said, or they may appear to have limited connection to the environment surrounding them, there is a very good chance that they will still respond to affection, holding their hands, and a calm soothing voice. It is well documented that the Healthcare Community knows that a well-trained Specialist in Memory Care can manage the individual with specialized behavioral techniques and skills. Whatever type of dementia your loved one has been diagnosed with, we will carefully select a Memory Care Specialist for your family member and guarantee the right person for the job. This process includes training and re-training our Memory Care Specialists for which type of dementia each individual may have. We provide an invaluable service, combining patience, compassion, caring, dependability, professionalism, honesty, flexibility, problem solving and a positive attitude.

Why Many Caregivers Have
Great Difficulty Managing the Dementia Behavior?

Caring for your loved one with mid-to-late stage dementia and Alzheimer's disease often presents challenging bahavior problems. The anger, sadness, confusion and fear that people with the disease are experiencing can result in aggressive and sometimes violent behavior. In addition, dementia can cause mood swings and even change a person's personality and behavior. Dementia poses many challenges for families and caregivers who are not able to manage the difficult task of caring for your loved one.

When to Call for Help?

A crisis can occur at any time. When the crisis involves a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of Dementia, the situation becomes even more complex. They may show symptoms and exhibit behavior that requires immediate intervention. If people that are untrained in Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care attempt to assess their loved one, they may be at risk for inappropriate care. We know that it not only affects the afflicted person but also his or her family.

Dementia is an Umbrella Term

It describes the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by certain diseases or conditions. There are many different types of Dementia, although some are far more common than others. They are often named according to the condition that has caused the Dementia. Some of the more common types of Dementia are Alzheimer’s, Vascular Dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies and Frontotemporal Dementia, which can make up for a diagnosis of Dementia. It is important to determine the type of Dementia present, so appropriate memory care for the individual can be provided.
