It is usually best for those suffering with Alzheimer’s or dementia to receive care in their own homes because their homes are a safe, familiar environment. Our memory care exercises will help slow the effects of memory loss and we will also use positive reinforcement techniques to respond to mood swings and agitation.

Signs and Symptoms: Aging versus Alzheimer’s Disease
Just because someone is experiencing memory loss, that doesn’t mean they are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or a different type of dementia. Dementia symptoms can include the following among others:
- Impaired focus
- Short-term memory loss
- Sentence and task repetition
- Uncharacteristic mood changes
- Tough time finding the proper words to use
You must consult a physician to know for sure whether someone has dementia. There’s no cure for the disease, but medications can help slow its progression.
