We understand the special needs of Alzheimer's care. At the Abington of Glenview we look at residents who are cognitively impaired as individuals with individual needs and wants. The Abington has developed successful strategies for the care of these residents. These strategies require high levels of ability, creativity and insight from our specially trained team members.
Our Dementia Unit is a comfortable and supportive environment that we feel is just the right size to meet resident's individual needs. The small, structured activity programs provide an optimal atmosphere for residents to share and enjoy leisure activities without feeling overwhelmed by outside disruptions. Our caring, clinically trained nurses, social workers and activity assistants provide specially designed programs to promote health, dignity and self-respect.
Our goals when working with residents on the Special Care Unit include:
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a degenerative brain disorder that has no known cause, treatment or cure. It progressively impairs balance, movement, vision, speech and swallowing while the mind remains relatively clear. In March of 2002, actor and musician Dudley Moore died from PSP. the Society for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy is dedicated to finding the cause and cure for PSP and providing support and information to families.
The Abington hosts a PSP Support Group on the first Saturday of every other month at 1:30 p.m. The support group is free and open to the public. Please contact Darren Loveless, Community Relations, for more details or check out www.psp.org for more information.
