Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
About Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care at Loretto
Loretto has several specialized programs designed for patients who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or related dementia. They provide supervision and assistance in a supportive, positive environment.
The Heritage’s Enriched Housing Living and Assisted Living Programs provide caring supervision and services for older adults with various stages of Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Along with all the amenities provided by these programs, Heritage residents also receive specialized programming to assist them in areas of communication, memory and socialization. Residents also derive pleasure and maintain social contacts through therapeutic recreation and dining programs.
Structured Unit for Neuroimpairment (SUN)
The Structured Unit for Neuroimpairment (SUN) is a residential care unit in the Loretto Health and Rehabilitation Center’s Cunningham skilled nursing building. SUN has been developed to serve residents with an irreversible, progressive dementia illness in a group environment. The primary goal of SUN is to maximize independence through preventive and restorative services, medical treatment and disease management. Structured therapeutic activities are provided to assist in developing relationships and preserving skills and social roles acquired over a lifetime. Social workers work with both residents and their families to promote the physical, social, emotional and spiritual well being of each individual.
