Living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Dementia is a progressive disease that can affect a person’s memory, thinking, orientation and comprehension. It affects every aspect of daily life and has a significant impact on individuals and their families.
Caring for someone living with dementia can be emotionally overwhelming. We provide essential support for caregivers, and the necessary services to sustain individuals in the community.
We have staff who are specially trained to work with clients who have dementia, including Alzheimer’s.
