Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients deserve the highest level of care and this may seem overwhelming for those who do not understand the illness. Cedar Care is here to assist you through this difficult illness.

Alzheimer’s is an illness affecting the brain and can cause sufferers to lose their ability to think clearly, lose their memory and impact their ability to make good judgements. The illness is progressive, and patients may have trouble looking after themselves, and as the disease progresses, they will require increased levels of care.

We believe that a general daily routine is important for these patients and an essential part of treatment. We give our patients a fixed routine that provides them with a sense of consistency that benefits their overall well-being. These daily routines include hygiene, dressing and grooming assistance and housekeeping and personal laundry services.

When it comes to food, we serve three highly nutritional meals a day that accommodates Doctor prescribed diets when required. The patient’s medication is monitored and managed at all times. A Hospice Care Program for End of Life Care is also available for patients who are too frail to support themselves.

Our goal is always to make our residents comfortable and let them know they are accepted, in a warm, compassionate and caring environment.
