Guiding Patients & Families
Through Difficult Times

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease or other types of dementia can be overwhelming. Caregivers often feel anxious, lonely and helpless as they care for their family member. Haven Dementia Care helps improve quality of life for hospice patients with cognitive disorders and helps their family members with caregiving and communication. Whether your loved one is just beginning to show signs or has advanced Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia, Haven’s specially trained dementia care team is here to support hospice patients and their caregivers every step of the way.

Our goal is to work with the patient and family to find ways to comfort the body and mind and bring joy in a difficult time.

Haven Dementia Care is a specialty program that is purposefully designed to provide care for hospice patients living with cognitive disorders including Alzheimer’s Disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s dementia.

The program uses an individualized hospice care plan and best practices to bring dementia care to the patient wherever they call home, including private residences and facilities. Our activity coordinators are specially trained to educate and provide guidance to caregivers about the best non-clinical therapeutic interventions that will help make their loved one comfortable.

  • Experienced a 10 pound or more weight fluctuation in the past 30 days
  • Shown inability to perform tasks of daily living, like eating, walking, using the bathroom, getting dressed, etc.
  • Had two or more ER visits in the last 60 – 90 days
  • Had decreased alertness, withdrawal or confusion
  • Had difficulty communicating their needs, wants or feelings
  • Had recurring infections (UTI, pneumonia)
  • Had decreased appetite, coughing, choking or watering eyes during meals

If your loved one receives care from the Haven Dementia Care program, all home medical equipment and supplies are included. In addition, they will receive an activity care kit unique to them. For example, if your loved one is an animal lover, their activity care kit might include one of our “pet” companions, a lifelike cat or dog to soothe them. Or if they like knitting or working with their hands, they may be provided with a custom sensory book to engage their mind and body.

Caregivers are provided with resources and education from our highly trained staff. This includes help with everything from caregiving to learning about cognitive communication needs. In addition, your loved one can stay at one of our five hospice care centers for up to five days of respite care. This provides a break for caregivers and high-quality, 24/7 care from medical staff in a homelike environment for dementia patients.

The Haven Dementia Care program is designed to be an additional level of support for hospice patients who are living with dementia. Care plans are specifically tailored for your loved one. An interdisciplinary team comprised of a physician, nurse, activity coordinator, social worker and chaplain collaborate with you to create a plan that meets your loved one’s individual needs. It is important that we meet you wherever you are, whether that is home, a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility or group home.

If your loved one has acute symptoms, we can treat them at our care center, saving them a trip to the emergency room. We are available around-the-clock at 800.HOSPICE.

Haven Dementia Care is 100 percent covered by Medicare and most private insurance.
