These functions include memory, language skills, visual perception, problem solving, self-management, and the ability to focus and pay attention. Some people with dementia cannot control their emotions, and their personalities may change.

Medication management is the monitoring of medication that a patient takes to confirm that he or she is complying with a medication regimen, while also ensuring the patient is avoiding potentially dangerous drug interactions and other complications. This is especially important for those taking large quantities of medication to address chronic illnesses and multiple diseases. Taking multiple medication is known as polypharmacy, and it is particularly common among older adults, as they are more likely to need medication to manage an array of chronic conditions.

Dankie Trudie en die hele LA VIE Oosmed span wat alles in hul vermoë doen om ons geliefdes veilig en gesond te hou. Die kreatiwiteit wat aan die dag gelê word om mamma-hulle te bederf en te stimuleer met aktiwiteite. Die moeite wat aangegaan word om hulle spesiaal te laat voel bv. die gesigsbehandeling wat ń tydjie gelede gereël was. Dit was so mooi gedoen van musiek tot blomme tot dekor om atmosfeer te skep. Wow dit was net ongelooflik. Dankie dankie dankie vir soveel wat woorde nie kan se nie. Julle is kosbaar vir ons.

I would like to thank each and every staff member for the excellent care our mom received while in the step-down on behalf of her and us. Not only was it a clean and safe environment, but she was always cared for with tenderness and patience and the caregivers always made sure she was looked after from head to toe.
