  1. Nursing home care for the patient with Alzheimer's disease : an overview.

    Article - En anglais

    Although patients with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia constitute a significant proportion of all nursing home residents, nursing home care for such patients generally remains inadequate.

    Care in such nursing facilities has evolved along « medical » lines, with the physical environment closely resembling that of the hospital and emphasis placed on providing skilled nursing care for patients with physical illness rather than cognitive impairment.

    Special care units that incorporate physical design elements, programs, and services specifically tailored to the perceived needs of the Alzheimer's disease patient may constitute a remedy for this situation.
