Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 50 to 70 percent of dementia cases. With Alzheimer’s, high levels of certain proteins inside and outside brain cells make it hard for brain cells to stay healthy and to communicate with each other. The brain region called the hippocampus is the center of learning and memory in the brain and the brain cells in this region are often the first to be damaged. That’s why memory loss is often one of the earliest symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Exceptional Senior Living provides person-centered Alzheimer’s treatment and care. Our focus is to engage with our memory care residents in all aspects of their day: like dining, activities and therapy. We foster a level of friendship and understanding with all of our residents.

    Exceptional Senior Living has found that in dealing with Alzheimer’s care residents, we need to find out what our residents like and their individual needs, read their history, talk to their families and ask them about the life they led up until they were diagnosed. We want to know our residents likes and dislikes so that we can customize their day-to-day activities to best fit their needs.
