Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging; it’s a progressive and fatal disease. Though the majority of person diagnosed with dementia are age 65 or older, there are individuals who are much younger that are diagnosed with this devastating illness. The disease not only affects the individual, it dramatically changes the lives of the victim’s families. Dementia does not discriminate by age, race, gender, etc. The disease may affect anyone at any time and our Center is ready to serve those within the CSRA as the need arises.
The goal of the Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care is to delay or eliminate the need for nursing home placement. The design of the Day Center's program helps to encourage the independence of each participant. The Jud C. Hickey Center is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For the Individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease, it encourages participation in decision-making, maintains dignity, and promotes self-esteem. For the Caregiver, it provides an opportunity for a much-needed break from providing care.
The Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care provides a safe, nurturing and attentive environment for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/dementia who need supervision while their families are working, running errands or taking a break. The Day Center provides a structured, comprehensive program that abides by government standards and provides a variety of health, social and related support services in a protective setting.
Trained staff members assist with personal care and meaningful activities. Programs within the Center promote independence, freedom of choice and cognitive thinking. Activities include: music, art and pet therapy; range of motion exercises; reminiscence games and activities; and recreational programs
