A Program for Late Stage Dementia Patients and Their Care Givers

Most people think that ‘hospice is hospice’ no matter what the diagnosis.  At Old Colony Hospice we believe that each diagnosis needs specific interventions.  This has never been more apparent than with our Late Stage Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia patients.  Within this program we will look to engage patients through:
  • Compassionate Touch  for skin integrity and massage
  • Music intervention  specific to each person
  • Memory Box  to remind us who we are caring for when they can’t
  • Care Blankets  for warmth or weight
  • Advanced Feeding and Bathing Techniques  specific to dementia
  • Family support  through education on disease process and anticipatory grief
