From knowing how to approach the ones they care for, to recognizing the stage of dementia a resident may be experiencing, our staff has a deep understanding of the different types of dementia, their progression, and associated behaviors. This dementia-specific knowledge focuses on the pathology of dementia, the impact of cognition, memory, and behavior, and how these changes affect a person’s abilities and quality of life.
Our nurses are proficient in providing personal care tailored to the needs of dementia residents. This includes assisting with daily activities, managing medications, and observing and addressing physical and cognitive changes. We are a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week memory care community.
