Dementia/Alzheimer's Care

Dementia is not one specific disease, but is a term used to describe a variety of symptoms caused by disorders that affect the brain. These disorders are characterized by impaired memory and difficulty with language, motor activity, recognizing objects and “executive function,” which refers to the ability to plan and organize. Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive brain disease that slowly, over time, destroys memory and thinking skills. It is the most common cause of dementia among older people. If a family member or friend has dementia, you know that caring for them can be mentally and physically challenging, and can also put strain on your family and friendships. At Edgecombe Health Center, your loved one will receive around-the-clock care in a quiet, comfortable setting and be engaged in a variety of activities designed to provide a sense of self-worth and purpose. We also use music or memory programs to help patients enjoy each day to its fullest.

Upon admission, the interdisciplinary team will work with you and your family to identify care needs, preferences, and goals for your stay. You are a valuable partner in the process. Within the first few days of your stay, you and your family will be invited to participate in a care planning conference to discuss needs, discharge planning and progress toward goals.
