Alzheimer’s and Dementia Specialized Care – A World of Difference
Different kinds of dementia can vary in their symptoms, progression, treatment, and approach to care. At Stanton Aging Solutions, we believe that providing specialized dementia care, therapeutic strategies, and enhanced connection will make a world of difference to our clients and their families. We work with families and with our highly-trained Concierge Care Connection (CCC) professionals to enhance the comfort, well-being, and overall quality of life for our clients with Alzheimer’s or dementia. We focus on the dignity of each and every person, emphasizing an individualized and positive, relationship-centered approach. We start with each client’s life story, their interests then and now, and tap into what we can learn about our clients to develop a care plan that will provide the greatest cognitive engagement, purpose, and quality of life.
