Iowa Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Alzheimer’s care is getting more and more sophisticated as more research is dedicated to the cognitive disability. As a result, treatment has evolved into much more hands-on with a variety of activities designed for the body and mind. Along with engagement for positive cognitive support, meaningful activities will stimulate brain activity in conjunction with physical strengths.

The 24/7 employed staff means that they are there to monitor residents around the clock, always observant of slips and falls, and avoiding any safety hazards. You can rest easier knowing a loved one is properly taken care of and around the clock. The buildings are also designed for patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia in mind. Knowing that getting lost and wandering outside the premise is plausible, the buildings have been constructed to provide easier navigation while also avoiding escaping from the facility where a senior may be exposed to dangerous traffic and other situations.

Dementia trained caregivers allow families to not travel the frustrating landscape of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia alone. It’s a very challenging disease, that rips a lot of functionality and cognitive abilities savagely from a loved one. The best care for Alzheimer’s is teamwork oriented, where multiple people on a daily basis make a lasting impact.

In an Iowa memory care community exclusively dedicated to Alzheimer’s and dementia, the staff is not only specifically trained to handle these complexing issues, but also provide a supportive community with others that are going through the same problems.
