What is done to treat dementia in a care home?
Depending on the physical and mental states of the patients, doctors prescribe different medications. Besides medicines, they also have therapy sessions. For example, in cognitive stimulation therapy, people with dementia are actively stimulated and engaged during sessions while getting social benefits from being in a group. There is also music and crossword puzzles.
But, there are various types of home care. Nursing homes and memory care are best for those with dementia or Alzheimer’s. It’s best to choose the home care that suits your treatment and well-being needs.
