In Home Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia
A critical support that we offer for Bay Area seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or stroke is memory care in a home care setting. Our home care specialists are trained in creating the kind of environment that is most conducive to helping those coping with the trials of aging and to maintain as much functionality as is possible.
Memory care is an effective way to slow down the process of deterioration that these diseases bring, and involves engaging the brain through puzzles, games, conversation, and reminiscing. The more active and mentally engaged patients with memory challenges are, slower the progression of these diseases. The more those neurological connections are used, the more likely they are to stay functional.
A powerful tool for families, bringing in a professional caregiver who is trained in memory care, coupled with the familiar surroundings of the home, is one of the best ways for families of patients with stroke, dementia or Alzheimer’s to mitigate the deterioration that can eventually debilitate them in their old age. These diseases don’t have to be overwhelming for families of aging loved ones. We’re here to help.
NuevaCare is proud to offer MnemeTherapy® to our Bay Area clients. MnemeTherapy uses everyday activities like singing, movement,story telling, painting and other types of artistic expression to encourage neuroplasticity as well as brain activity to stimulate the brain. Testimonies show improvement in some clients’ verbal skills, mobility, combativeness, and spatial acuity. This program can benefit those who have mild to progressive cognitive decline due Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Dementia.

We promote a social model of in-home care, featuring caregiver interactions with the senior throughout the day. The memory care and support that we provide is crucial for these seniors.

Palo Alto Factoid
In later years, the city of Palo Alto would grow up under the scraggly branches of El Palo Alto. A century after the Spanish explorers took note of the tall tree, Senator Leland Stanford settled trotting horses on his new Palo Alto Stock Farm. Later he and his wife Jane founded a university that would model El Palo Alto on its official seal. And as the University Park tract matured around Stanford University, it incorporated in 1894 as the city of Palo Alto. The new city was already a stopping point for the Southern Pacific Railroad, which had laid its track lines beneath the natural landmark. The train depot less than a half-mile south at University Avenue became known to many as Big Tree Station. Source: http://www.paloaltohistory.org/el-palo-alto.php
