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.
