The Cheyenne Regional Medical Center Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program is designed to help patients and their families address the complex medical, behavioral and social needs of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
Our Dementia Care Specialists are at the heart of the program and work closely with each patient’s primary care doctor to develop and implement a personalized care plan.
In addition to helping with the changing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, a primary goal of the program is to provide ongoing support to families and caregivers, who can experience caregiver burnout or financial strain.
The Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care Program offers:
- A 90-minute in-person visit with one of our Dementia Care Specialists
- A personalized care plan developed with the referring physician/provider
- Support throughout the year by telephone and in-person visits
- Assistance and advice in order to avoid emergency department visits and hospitalizations
All patients are monitored at least annually to ensure that ongoing and emerging needs are met. In-person visits are covered by Medicare. Telephone calls and many other services (for example, support groups, educational programs and referrals to community-based organizations) are provided at little or no cost to participants.
The CRMC Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program strives to help every patient maintain their dignity and, to the highest degree possible, their independence.
To be eligible for this program, patients must have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia and must not be living in a nursing home.
For patients without a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, please contact us to learn how Supportive Care Services can help.
