Seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease better manage their agitation and disorientation by being in familiar settings. Many seniors with dementia, including those with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of cognitive decline, spend the course of their illness living in their own homes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia among seniors. Seniors with Alzheimer's disease and dementia can stay safe at home with the assistance of our Alzheimer's & Dementia Care Program for Galesburg seniors.
For seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia, daily routines are beneficial.
