Patient-Centered Dementia Care

Interim HealthCare caregivers have specalized training in a Positive Approach to Care for individuals and their families who live with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.

As dementia progresses, we pledge to preserve dignity and provide comfort while meeting evolving needs with skill, patience and compassion. Our care is tailored to each stage of brain change according to the GEMS® dementia classification model so we can meet people where they are on their dementia pathway and adjust activities and interactions based on their current abilities, as well as the challenges they’re facing. Some of the challenges our professionals are trained to address include:
  • Hearing changes
  • Decline of self-care abilities
  • Personality changes
  • Anger, aggression, frustration and anxiety
  • Changing taste buds and nutritional needs
  • Sundowning
  • Wandering
