Here at Maplewood of Sauk Prairie, we want to be more than just a premier Sauk Prairie nursing home for Baraboo , Sauk Prairie, and Lodi clients; we also aim to provide exceptional care. We like to keep our services of the highest quality, whether our residents need rehabilitation, long-term care, or memory care.
Speaking of memory care, we take pride in the services we provide for patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia is a broad category of brain conditions that cause the patient to experience a gradual decrease in thinking ability and memory. Common symptoms include reduced motivation, language problems, and emotional issues. For a person to be diagnosed with dementia, the decline in mental function should be significantly greater than what is expected from aging.
The most common among the different types of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, which affects an estimated 5 million Americans. The most prevalent symptoms are gradual yet severe memory loss and difficulty performing otherwise familiar tasks.
Symptoms of Alzheimer’s start off mild but often get worse as years go by. The effects of the condition are truly hard to deal with both on the part of the sufferer and the people around him or her. The patient can be confused about what day and year it is, find trouble with writing and speaking, display poor judgment, become moody, exhibit drastic changes in personality, and frequently lose things by being unable to backtrack.
At Maplewood of Sauk Prairie, we understand that special care is needed to treat dementia. More importantly, we understand that it would give peace of mind for patients and their loved ones if care is given to ease up the more prominent effects of dementia. This is why we provide memory care for our patients who need them.
As a caring nursing home for Lodi and Baraboo residents, we provide special programs tailor-made for the needs of each patient. There are group activities designed for ongoing social skills as well as memory care activities that help with the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Through the individualized programs, we ensure that each day will be a meaningful step toward better management of these conditions.
