North Carolina Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

There is unfortunately no cure for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, but that doesn’t mean that dementia trained caregivers are working their hardest to help find a solution while still providing some sense of normalcy for loved ones dealing with the terrible symptoms of the cognitive disabilities.

Staff members at Alzheimer’s care homes in North Carolina provide a wide range of activities and events designed to encourage brain stimulation. Whether in a personal, one-on-one setting or with other members, the coordinated programs feature everything from light physical exercise to personal productivity tasks (writing letters, painting, solving puzzles, reading, etc.) to leisure games and activities. Extended visitation hours also encourage friends and family members to stop by frequently.

North Carolina dementia care homes are also wonderfully furnished and oversized with a fair amount of personal space. Handicap access to and from the room, along with access into the bathroom accommodates residents of all ability levels. Extra assistance with hygiene and getting ready for the day are provided by caregivers.

The meals are fresh and prepared daily, generally offering multiple entree options and making special requests based on eating habits or nutritional requirements. The dining rooms provide a nice balance of a pleasant atmosphere as well as the opportunity to eat not only with other residents, but family and friends that want to share a meal.
