Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in Oregon and Washington

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease today; and that number is estimated to increase by 40% by 2025. The Avamere Family of Companies strives to stay ahead of senior health trends by innovating our clinical practices. One area that we have paid special attention to are the needs of seniors suffering Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other mental illness which require specialized and compassionate care.Avamere community at night

With the Avamere Family of Companies’ innovative “Best Friends” approach to dementia care and Alzheimer’s care, success comes in simple ways. It comes when a resident engages in a satisfying activity and feels a sense of accomplishment. It comes when a resident is comforted by remembering a daily routine. And it comes when a resident explores our facility, safely.

Because dementia and Alzheimer’s affects one’s memory and thinking skills, Avamere Family of Companies’ dementia care teams coach residents in a kind and compassionate way that presents clues from resident’s previous lifestyle. They also closely monitor and manage behavior changes, so residents can stay involved with daily activities and be “present” for each new day.

Furthermore, we strive to:

  • Ease stressful situations by keeping to daily routines and having similar staff schedules
  • Be alert to “sundowning,” when some dementia care residents become more anxious during nighttime hours
  • Provide safe areas for wandering and exploring

When considering the next step in your life, it is important to know all of your options – from the level of care you may need to the amenities that are right for you.
