More on Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s is a disease caused by the progressive loss of intellectual functions. Doctors are not sure what triggers the onset of the disease but there are three definite stages. Early-stage residents have mild memory concerns, but tend to still function well at home. Middle stage residents have difficulty caring for themselves and may experience behavioral and psychiatric episodes. Late-stage residents require complete care available in our long term care. Throughout the disease process, the staff adapts to the needs of the Elder as needed.
