Alzheimer’s/Dementia

Alzheimer’s Disease, which affects more than four million adults in the U.S., is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer’s Disease is a brain disorder that impairs an individual’s ability to think, remember and make decisions. With Alzheimer’s, which usually develops in people 60 and older, plaque accumulation kills nerve and brain cells, causing a steady decline in memory and cognitive abilities.

Although at first glance it may seem that the disease has robbed an individual of their sense of self, this is not always the case. Even though individuals with dementia may experience an altered sense of self, the essence of who they are can still be brought forth with understanding and specialized care. With proper care, their feelings, emotions and memories can be more fully realized. It’s their ability to access this sense of self that now becomes the challenge. Working through this challenge is a process that is unique to every individual. At CenterLight Health System, we strive to slow the progression of dementia, help the individual with their daily activities, and enhance their quality of life.

We offer residential care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in our four skilled nursing facilities. Specialized services for those individuals are also integrated into many of our other programs. Please call us at 718-636-1000 for more information to determine which program is right for you.
