How Memory Boxes Assist Dementia Sufferers

Post date: 3/1/2019

It can be frightening and painful to watch a loved one experience memory lapses, behavioral changes and the inevitable functional decline brought on by dementia. The Sun Health Memory Care Navigator is someone you can depend on to share knowledge about dementia and available community resources. The Navigator helps minimize the stress of supporting a loved one with this chronic disease.

This program, offered at no charge thanks to the generous funding of the Sun Health Foundation, provides personal and professional guidance for patients, family members and care givers coping with the emotional, psychological and physical effects of dementia. The Navigator prepares an individualized plan of care tailored to each patient’s needs and serves as a liaison between patients and families, their physicians, and ancillary community services.

In this special presentation, Sun Health’s Memory Care Navigator, Cheryl Ortega, explains how the shared memories and interaction of family members and friends can have a positive impact on those suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia.
