Dementia Special Care
When a loved one has advanced dementia, the whole family is impacted in countless ways. Over time, as dementia increasingly affects a patient’s memories, personality, and behavior, it is common for families to feel emotionally, physically, and financially overextended. Fortunately, the right expert care can ease the multiple effects of this condition, and give everyone a measure of peace.
The Advanced Dementia Care Program offered by Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center, is run by a team with more than 25 years of experience in providing care for this condition. We are capable of caring for patients with all forms of advanced dementia, including those caused by Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, Parkinson's disease, and Huntington's disease, among others. Our program is designed to:
- Monitor and manage patient symptoms for optimal comfort
- Provide information, comprehensive support, and hands-on assistance
- Offer a true continuum of health care services to both the patient and family through the stages of the disease
Our patient and family-centered approach provides families with a fresh perspective, care options they may not know about, and continuous support. As the patient receives our specialized care family stress is reduced and everyone experiences an improved quality of life. Our multidisciplinary team specially trained to provide comfort and care to patients to help manage dementia and other health problems with dignity and compassion.
