Alzheimer's Memory Care
Individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s or other cognitive disorders require an environment and care program that are designed to address their unique medical, social, and recreational needs.
Hunterdon Care Center offers a separate, secure and certified Alzheimer’s unit, designed to address the unique challenges of these residents.
Significantly, HCC’s Alzheimer’s care unit is certified, unlike most Alzheimer care programs at long-term care facilities. The specialized care program helps memory-impaired patients maximize their cognitive function. The activities program is also specifically designed to enhance sociability and enjoyment of life.
