There are approximately 140 residents, aged 60-98, living at the Alzheimer’s Medical Center. The center is suited for inpatient care of patients with dementia, and is divided into four floors, each floor housing one ward.
Ground Floor, the Ward for the Cognitively Declined (Ward D)
The ward is designed for approximately 30 residents with relatively high cognitive function, mobility, and independence. A regular and skilled nursing staff works in the ward, specializing in providing high quality professional care according to the residents’ needs, communication difficulties, and behavioral disorders. The ward is open to family visits throughout the day and conducts extensive social activities including concerts, birthday parties, guided tour excursions, and more.
The ward even has a residents’ choir. This is a relatively small ward with a warm and cozy atmosphere. The ward has an adjacent tended garden where residents and their visitors can relax throughout the day, and a Snoezelen room, which is used as a quiet, tranquil, and relaxing area.
