Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care

Our Memory Care Team, led by David Hart, Ph.D., takes pride in our capacity to meet the needs of patients at every stage of the disease process.

If you or someone you love is living with early-stage dementia or Alzheimer’s and finding it more difficult to complete familiar tasks, you may benefit from our services.

Caring for Patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s

Whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, we are committed to improving quality of life for all affected clients and their families. We achieve this mission through the implementation of evidence-based strategies with demonstrated result for some of the disease’s more difficult challenges.

Here’s how we provide families with concrete results:

 

The Memory Care Team (MCT) provides face-to-face training to our professional caregivers, utilizing the Memory Care Tools strategy, developed at Hoag Hospital to manage some of the more difficult behaviors frequently exhibited by patients with dementia. Training is on-going and includes crucial clinical information on effective communication strategies to engage our patients with dementia; specific tools to redirect agitated and aggressive behaviors that are often associated with confusion; and comprehensive approaches to developing activities that stimulate the patient cognitively, socially, physically, and spiritually.  Most importantly, our caregivers continue to be supervised by the MCT throughout their tenure, receiving on-going continuing education on specific patient needs related to the changing stages of dementia.

The MCT, in conjunction with the patient’s family, develop individually tailored Memory Care Plans that address the myriad of cognitive, behavioral, and functional needs present at varying stages of the disease process. Memory Care Plans function primarily as road maps that guide the patient, family, caregivers, and MCT to the same destination – ultimately a higher quality of life for the patient with dementia and the family as a whole.  Memory Care Plans also assist all parties to maintain an unparalleled level of accountability that is unmatched in the in-home care industry.
