FOOD + JOY

Many of us would agree: Eating is one of the greatest pleasures in life. This holds true, if not more so, in nursing homes and memory care facilities where the entire day revolves around eating.  Many residents begin their day with a health care worker hurrying them to the dining room to get ready for breakfast. Within a few hours, everyone is preparing for lunch and then an afternoon snack during a group event follo...

Delirium is a commonly misdiagnosed condition that is usually caused by the presence of an acute illness causing cognitive impairment.  People often confuse delirium with dementia, while under the impression that only people with dementia can develop delirium, but this is not true.  In fact there are multiple ways a person can become delirious, often due to an underlying health condition, lack of or use of certain medication,...

However, complete and total reform is seeded through taking on small tasks and functions, piece by piece, to build and develop culture.  By choosing low hanging fruit t...

With the increase in life expectancy and the number of people over the age of 65 expected to double in the next 40 years it is important to understand the difference between normal signs of aging and signs of dementia.  Normal cognitive changes can be mistaken as early stages of dementia but as we age these changes can be expected which is why it is important to distinguish between the two.

Do you know the difference between dementia and Alzheimer’s? Have you or someone you know ever said, “dementia is a form of Alzheimer’s?” Well, you’re not alone! It’s actually very common for people to confuse the two terms and use them interchangeably. In fact, 60-70% of cases are Alzheimer’s, so it makes sense why so many people think of Alzheimer’s and not dementia. In this first blog post of our dispelling myth series, we...
