It also offered tips for caregivers to maintain the skills and abilities of those with dementia. These simple practices also help the caregiver stay in top form. Here are a few of the materials that were shared.

My family and I are exceedingly grateful to the proficient and compassionate staff of ActivCare for taking loving care of our dad and husband for eight years. No matter what time of day or night we would visit, the ever vigilant and caring staff were guiding, comforting, assisting, dancing, bowling, laughing or singing with Dad. The staff also helped our family to understand and accept Dad's ever-changing world and encouraged us to savor new kinds of joy and adventure with him.” —Daughter of ActivCare Resident
