As populations age, dementia-related conditions have become more prevalent.
Care for individuals suffering with dementia may consist of formal and informal care. Formal care involves the services of community and medical partners, while informal care involves the support of family, friends, and local communities, but more often from spouses, adult children and other relatives.
In most mild to medium cases of dementia the primary caregiver is a family member, usually a spouse or adult child. Over time more and more professional care in the form of nursing and other supportive care may be required, whether at home or in a long term care facility.
We offer specialist care for people with Dementia at Hillcrest Manor to ensure that individuals suffering continue to live a full and active life.
