Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks. This is a progressive disease, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. Hospice accepts patients who are in the late stages of Alzheimer’s.
Our specially trained team of health care professionals can provide care and support in your home, nursing home or assisted living center. The team is made up of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, Home Health Aides, and volunteers whose goal is managing your unique symptoms and enhancing your emotional and spiritual well – being. This team is available 24 hours a day to respond to your needs and will make home visits when needed.
