Cognitive Support Program

The Center of Your Universe, The Center of Our Care

Do you have a loved one living with dementia or showing symptoms of cognitive decline?

Dementia and cognitive decline are often unpredictable. Some days, he can recall stories from childhood and laugh with exuberance about his experiences. Other days, he seems to fade into withdrawal and silence and seems confused about his surroundings. You worry. You miss how things used to be. Will he wander? Can he be left alone? How can we slow these changes?
