At TruCare we follow a unique approach to Alzheimer’s Care. Our focus is on managing dignity. Currently, there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, BUT there is support, care and caring. We believe the right care approach can help your loved one maintain quality of life, even in the face of memory loss. Staying in the familiar surroundings of home can keep seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia feeling safe and loved.
Great emphasis is placed on the memory care program as the relationships formed during this process, determines the long-term outcome for the individual. Not neglecting symptoms of the disease, we rather focus on the care and dignity of the person with dementia.
This approach enables us to provide individualized care that:
- Helps your loved one remain safe and calm at home
- Encourages engagement
- Creates social interaction
- Provides mind-stimulating activities
- Honours and respect who the individual was earlier in life
- Helps minimize behavioural changes
- Supports the family
