Our professionals can reduce the stress and anxiety of being in a new environment for either a short-term rehabilitation or a permanent residence. The advanced Integrated Cognitive Program is instrumental in formulating the best care for our patients living with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Our Integrated Cognitive Program combines a standardized functional cognitive assessment of the patient with a relevant inventory of their daily life details, to help us develop a more-complete understanding of each individual under our care. By matching these two data sets in a meaningful way, we can better tailor our individualized therapy programs and care to the patient’s specific needs.
