For people living with dementia, it can be difficult for them to recall their memories.
Dementia isn’t a disease, but rather a collection of symptoms associated with a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s. People living with dementia often struggle to remember things like the names of their children or how to fasten a button.
Science can’t explain why, but dementia affects each person differently. That’s why we take special measures to ensure your loved one’s care is tailored to their specific needs.

Dementia Care Assessments
When we meet a new resident, we perform several different assessments, including:
- MDS: Measures physical, psychological and psychosocial function.
- BIMS: Helps determine if the mental status is altered.
- Allen Cognitive Testing: Evaluates a person’s ability to understand verbal cues and motor skills.
These assessment tools determine which care community will be best suited for your loved one’s condition-based needs. We’re also able to build a more customized care plan because your loved one is directly involved in these assessments.
