We are specialists in Alzheimers and Dementia care and will be sure your loved one is treated with love and respect.
Dementia Care Advice
If you and/or your family are caring for your loved one on your own, there comes a point when it’s simply too much to handle. Patients with Dementia can exhibit extreme behavioral changes like outbursts of aggression. We have dealt with all of these symptoms and our expert care can help your loved one get through this difficult experience.
It is important to keep calm when responding to these kinds of behaviors. Remember that it is not their fault they are behaving this way, and it is just as difficult for them as it might feel for you.
Caring for patients with dementia requires lots of hard work and patience, especially in the later years of their lives.
