Memory Care Pittsburgh
Memory care focuses on what an individual is capable vs. not able to do, to improve the quality of life for the person with memory problems. For those with Alzheimer's disease or other kinds of dementia our program encourages people with memory issues to enjoy life, while also offering education and family support.
A Life Care Manager can help people with dementia:

- encourage the person with dementia to take an active role in their condition
- customize a plan of care to meet the individual’s needs. It’s important to remember that everyone experiences dementia and its progression in their own way.
- offer suggestions to allow the person with dementia to be able to lead active and fulfilled lives
- coach the family and care providers on ways to communicate with people with dementia
- assure a safe environment
- improve the symptoms and slow the progression of the disease
- cope with changes in behavior
- offer recommendations when driving becomes a concern
- monitor money management and financial safety
- familiar with methods to recommend when the person will not accept help
