The answers to these questions, combined with observations
and impressions made during facility tours and staff interviews will ease the task of selecting the right nursing care
ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA
Residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of
dementia need specialized care. Assisted Living Facilities offer
services and separate facilities for residents with early onset symptoms, but because of the progressive nature of the disease, it may
become necessary to transfer the resident to another facility that
can provide more appropriate care.
Facilities specializing in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and
dementia should provide a treatment plan that takes into account
not only the resident’s medical needs, but also the needs of the
entire family with social services and professional consultations
and individualized treatment reviews. Emphasis within the facility
should be placed on providing a calming, soothing environment
that is sensitive to the needs of the patient.
Please visit the Area Agency on Aging of The Capital Area at
www.aaacap.org for additional information on care for the elderly.
