The Alzheimer’s Day Center

I Alzheimer’s Day Care Centers, accredited with the Regional Health System, accommodate patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of mild-to-moderate dementia, including those with behavioral disorders (if controlled by drug therapy) and with partial preservation of cognitive and functional abilities, the enhancement or maintenance of which is the main goal. Day Care Centers target people with cognitive impairment and their families by completing the intermediate phase between caregiving at home (which is increasingly insufficient) and the institutionalization phase in Alzheimer’s Residential Units. The choice of semiresidentiality as a care setting for the dementia patient offers many advantages including valuable support for families and the longest possible stay of the patient at home, delaying permanent institutionalization.
