Alzheimer’s Community Care operates 11 Specialized Alzheimer’s Care and Service Centers with locations throughout Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties. All Centers are licensed in accordance with the higher standards of Florida’s Specialized Alzheimer’s Day Care Act of 2012.

 

The cost for a full day, up to 10 hours, is $70, while half-day care plans begin at $40. The organization provides dementia-specific care for the patient and his or her caregivers.  Our Care and Service Centers are open Monday through Friday, generally from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., for a total of 254 days a year. The West Palm Beach location is open from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

 

Alzheimer's Community Care's Program Nurses and staff are dementia-care specialists, with ongoing training in Alzheimer's Disease and related neurocognitive disorders. The organization maintains a staff to patient ratio of 1-to-5 to ensure each patient receives the individualized care needed. Program Nurses monitor patient nutrition and hydration, administer medications, evaluate health status, respond to medical needs and ensure that patients are involved in care to their maximum benefit every day.

 

Furthermore, Alzheimer’s Community Care provides vital, ongoing education and support for those who are caring for their loved ones. The organization offers a safe, compassionate and dignified option for families who want to delay or avoid nursing home placement.
