Dementia Care

The Alzheimer's Association provides some important facts on this chronic disease:

 

  • As many as 5.3 million Americans suffer from some form of Alzheimer's disease
  • Every 70 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease is the 7th leading cause of death in our country

While there have been promising developments in medical research, there is no cure on the horizon

 

 

Country View Square is our specialized 36-bed facility that is dedicated to sensitive, state-of-the-art programming and nursing care for residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. This is a special care unit with carefully selected staff and offers a social/activity model of care with a home-like, interactive environment, Garden Walk, and daily programs dedicated to meeting the unique care needs of each individual who resides here. Support groups and educational sessions about Alzheimer’s and related dementias are scheduled regularly. Country View Square brings families together through special events such as cook-outs, themed programs, and outings.

 

 

 

DeKalb County has made a facility-wide commitment to deliver excellence in dementia care and that commitment extends to all aspects of care for your loved one and family.
