Individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s or other cognitive disorders require an environment and care program that are designed to address their unique medical, social, and recreational needs. Hunterdon Care Center offers a separate, secure Alzheimer’s unit, designed to address the unique challenges of these residents.
Significantly, HCC’s Alzheimer’s Care Unit is certified, unlike most other long-term care facilities offering Alzheimer care programs. A specialized care program helps memory-impaired patients maximize their cognitive function. The activities program is also specifically designed to enhance sociability and enjoyment of life.
For those in advanced stages, Hunterdon Care Center’s Snoezelen Room offers innovative sensory therapies, including audiovisual stimuli, with soothing, pastoral scenes, as well as aromatherapy.
The Alzheimer’s unit caregivers have a heightened sensitivity and understanding of the condition and its impact. They treat each resident with an extra measure of dignity and love.
It’s no wonder family members sleep easily at night, knowing their loved ones are in good hands at Hunterdon Care Center’s memory impaired unit.
