At Exceptional Living Center of Brazil in Brazil, Indiana, just outside of Terre Haute, our Memory Care for Alzheimer’s treatment is defined first from a posture of respect for the resident. If your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, you are not alone. Alzheimer’s and related dementia affect over 5 million people. For many families, a common mistake is waiting until a crisis, which may include injury or wandering, before seeking help. Research shows that early detection allows for prompt intervention to preserve remaining abilities and slow the progression of the disease. Alzheimer’s care is a subset of dementia care, as dementia takes many forms other than Alzheimer’s disease.
