The medical community has discovered that the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease can be delayed by an average of six years through the incorporation of clinically proven non-drug therapies, even after the disease has begun. That’s why our Memory Care program and living environment center around the most promising medical science in the fight against dementia, including:
Diet. At Dogwood Forest, we make sure each resident receives the nutritional diet they need. Those who suffer from dementia or early-to-moderate stages of Alzheimer’s could have their cognitive impairment slowed or even reversed by switching to a healthier diet.
Cognitive Stimulation. People with memory impairment, including those with Alzheimer’s disease, still benefit from learning and mental activities to improve their quality of life and functioning.
Stress-Free Environment. Stress hormones appear to rapidly exacerbate the formation of brain lesions that are the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease; therefore, stress management is an important factor in treating the disease.
Physical Exercise & Healthy Lifestyle. Scientific evidence points to a relationship between brain health and cardiovascular system health.
Memory Through the Five Senses. A positive correlation exists between sensory-based therapies and improved memory, mood, and quality of life, even among those with Alzheimer’s disease. Each of the five senses is stimulated during activities at Dogwood Forest.
Socialization. Socialization is an important component of treatment because people with dementia can recognize and appreciate attention.
