As you may know, there are different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease or vascular dementia. However, dementia is a common diagnosis among seniors, and a diagnosis of dementia can lead to a mix of emotions for seniors and their families.

As seniors transition into the later stages of dementia, their care needs will change. Many require a higher level of assistance and supervision to allow them to continue living at home.

This trusted individual works with the family and client to develop and maintain a care plan that’s managed to ensure the care team is executing it as intended.
