When you live in an affluent areas like Highland Park, Deerfield,
and Lake Forest, you’re accustomed to a great many things but dementia, Alzheimer’s
and cognitive impairment, don’t really care about your status. But as a caregiving
organization focused on caring for individuals with cognitive impairments, we care
about the person and we try to understand who they are and were and what’s
important to them. Together we develop a customized plan of dementia care, designed to
address their cognitive impairment as it is today and what it might be tomorrow.
We are able to tailor a unique platform to take advantage of their strengths
and interests. An example of this would be a client that we had who had
terrible short-term memory loss, but his long-term memory was in intact. His
world was getting smaller and smaller every day as he discontinued activities
he loved due to the short-term memory loss. He used to love to go to the
ballgames (he was a Cubs fan, still waiting for a victory), but he couldn’t
follow the games anymore. We built a customized plan of care, took him to the
park with a sack lunch with hot dogs and peanuts and he listened to the game on
his old transistor radio. His physical condition dramatically improved because
he was walking around the park and he found a purpose and a reason to get up
and go out.
