Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning—thinking, remembering, and reasoning— and behavioural abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person’s daily life and activities. 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.
Our world-class facilities are staffed by highly skilled healthcare professionals, whom are dedicated to provide the best quality service.
All La Vie Care facilities have access to on-call physicians 24-hours per day.

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.
