Dementia Care

Caring for Dementia Patients on a Whole New Level

Caring for a loved one living with late stage Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be overwhelming, but there is help. That’s where we come in. Our hospice care for late-stage dementia patients and patients with other late-stage diagnoses accompanied by dementia is anything but standard. We provide special care for those living with these conditions in addition to our quality hospice care, by offering specialized experts who truly understand the unique symptoms, struggles and challenges your loved one may be facing.

Better Care Starts Here

Our nurses are specially trained to best manage the symptoms that come with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We also consult with our national network of medical directors, who are knowledgeable in both dementia and hospice care.

Sundowning Syndrome

If you’ve noticed your loved one has a tendency to become more frustrated or aggravated later in the day, it’s not uncommon. We can help by scheduling our visits later in the day to help calm your loved one.  We also have dementia-trained social workers in case there’s an increase in these symptoms.

Fall Safety Assessments Once a Week

To help keep your loved one safe and avoid their risk of falling, we do a safety assessment every week. We may also provide a physical therapist to help train you to help your loved one move from bed to bathroom, for example, or other transitions. In addition, our therapists are available for special needs concerning safety.
