Caring for the Long-Term Needs of Alzheimer’s and Dementia Patients

Long Term Care for DementiaDementia and Alzheimer’s are progressive neurological diseases that continue to degrade intellectual capacities along with social and occupational functioning. People with dementia live an average of 8 to 10 years after a diagnosis has been made and can live with the disease for up to 20 years. While the rate of deterioration and functioning vary, we know that as time goes on the need for care and support increases as cognitive function decreases.

That is why we create customized adaptable plans of care designed to address the ever changing needs of our clients and their families. As time goes on our Long Term Care Dementia client’s typically need a higher level of hands on support.
