Utah Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

Purpose and belonging. It seems like the two of the things that Alzheimer’s and dementia rob loved ones of more than anything are purpose and belonging, and consequently it is something that dementia care homes in Utah strongly attempt to restore.

While there is no known cure for dementia, Alzheimer’s care homes in Utah still believe that the disease does not define a loved one, nor do the other cognitive diseases treated at dementia care homes in the state.

Due to the gentle guidance of caregivers, visual reminders to help navigate, 24/7 patrolling staff, and extra safety features in and out of buildings, the grounds at dementia care facilities are usually very safe and stable. It helps ease new residents into a home, and consequently make the transition as peaceful as possible.

New members are also encouraged to interact not only with staff but other residents at the facility to make new lifelong friends. These residents not only share some of the frustrations and struggles with cognitive disabilities, but also can be living proof of improved well-being and self-esteem as a result of the care a dementia-based facility can provide.

The standard amenities of a dining area with gourmet meals served daily, daily or weekly housekeeping and laundry, extended visitation hours, indoor and outdoor private lounges, and other features can help provide as much comfort and stress-free living as possible.

And because dementia can rob individuals of some of their memory and ability to do daily functions like hygiene, getting in and out of bed, dressing, or moving around, caregivers are quick to lend a hand. Personalized treatment for Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia can begin today at one of the top Utah memory care communities.
