Pennsylvania Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Dementia is most commonly linked to Alzheimer’s because 60 to 80 percent of all cases are diagnosed as Alzheimer’s, yet there are many other diseases connected to dementia. Vascular dementia (the second most common), dementia with lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, Huntington's disease, Parkinson’s, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome are other examples of dementia and all of which are treated at dementia care homes in Pennsylvania.

Regardless of the form of dementia, caregivers generally notice some similarities between all the diseases and work to help supplement memory loss with activity, security and complete care to restore a quality of life that the family member has been suffering from of late.

Activity and security can help foster a comfortable and supportive center that works their hardest to make each resident feel as welcome as possible. Along with recognizing the similarities of all forms of dementia, memory care units in Pennsylvania also realize that each individual is unique, and thus their own treatment plan needs to be specialized.

Standard amenities at dementia care facilities in Pennsylvania include private beds and bathrooms, at least three daily served meals, coordinated activities offered on a daily basis, seating areas (indoors and outdoors) for residents, and 24-hour caregivers that routinely check up on residents.
