Dad has died, and she fell last week. I do not understand why she does not see the need for me to help her get some help in the home?  What is wrong with her?”

Dementia Life and Person-Centered Care Approach at CaraVita Home Care

Posted by Beth Cayce on October 3 2018 | 3 minute read

CaraVita’s Dementia Life program is an approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care that is focused on honoring the uniqueness of each individual we serve. Though dementia may steal a person’s memories, those living with dementia can still experience moments of connection and joy. At the end of the day, our lives are not measured by the number of things we have accomplished, but the relationships that we have formed along the way. In Dementia Life, we seek to create environments where those living with dementia can continue to connect to those around them and feel a sense of accomplishment each day. Whether it is making sure someone gets a hug before they get out of bed, or finding the right jazz song to dance to in the afternoon, we want each day in the lives of those we serve to be meaningful and full of engagement.
