Dementia

Finding answers and effective treatments can be more of a marathon than a race, and requires enormous amounts of patience and compassion.

Dementia can be categorized into three common categories:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Lewy Body disease
  • Vascular Dementia

A common and unfortunate theme among these conditions is that there is no known cure. However, the field of dementia studies is constantly growing, particularly with the United States’ aging baby boomer population, so advancements and discoveries are happening very frequently.

Providing care for a family member or loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s disease can be a daunting task, but one that most caregivers find truly rewarding and worthwhile. Some of the services patients benefit from are:

In-home and outpatient Rehabilitation services, including:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy

Home health aid services, including:

  • Bathing assistance
  • Meal preparation
  • Housekeeping services
  • Various other personal care activities

In-Home psychiatric nursing services from CMS-certified registered psychiatric nurses, including:

  • Medication monitoring
  • Screening for anxiety and depression
  • Community resource management
