Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia Program

Alzheimer's disease and the onset of dementia is life-changing for both the diagnosed and those close to them. Often families are faced with many questions. How will they meet the growing needs of their aging loved one? How will they tackle the challenges that lie ahead?

Forest View Center offers specialized programs for residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Much care has been given to creating a warm, home-like setting for our residents, and their comfort and safety - as well as peace of mind for their families - is our paramount concern at all times. We provide a welcoming environment that is secure, restraint-free, and features a wandering alarm system so our residents can enjoy both greater mobility and an added degree of protection.

Through individualized speech, occupational, and physical therapies, and specially designed activities, our team helps program residents reach their treatment goals. Our team also works with each patient's family to help identify significant events, people, and places that are unique to each resident. Families are encouraged to help to decorate their loved one's room with familiar pictures and small items from home.

With years of combined experience, our Forest View staff members focus on what residents can do, instead of what they cannot do. We provide the most up-to-date treatments and therapies, intervene creatively when challenges arise, and most of all, we are here to offer support and assistance to our patients and their families.

Additional Alzheimer's Information

Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia (a general term for memory loss). Though it is not the only cause of memory loss, it accounts for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases.

Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging, although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age. The majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older.

Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over a number of years.
