Dementia Program

Sage Outpatient Services offer a comprehensive, functional, goal-driven program specifically designed to treat individuals affected by Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Our program lasts for 12 – 16 weeks and the goal is to help individuals to maintain independence within the community or in their home for as long as possible.

The patient and the patient’s families are urged to come to their evaluation with individualized areas for the therapy team to focus as well as specific frustrations or concerns.

The Dementia Program is tailored to treat patients holistically with an increased focus on family involvement, home safety, family training, and education.

ABOUT OUR

DEMENTIA PROGRAM

Overview

Dementia can be a severely debilitating and life-altering diagnosis.  Families are often nervous and scared, not knowing what their journey will be like.  Our program has been designed for individuals who can still benefit from skilled therapeutic intervention through either restorative or compensatory strategy training.

Types Of Dementia

There are several types of dementia that could qualify you for our program:

  • Vascular Dementia
  • Frontotemporal Dementia
  • Lewy Body Dementia
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimer’s Dementia
Treatment Overview

Therapy is an important part of care for individuals with a dementia diagnosis.  Individuals that have a supportive therapy team behind them often feel more comfortable about the changes and obstacles that are present after this diagnosis.

Treatment Program Includes

The program offers:

  • Placement on Global Deterioration Scale (GDS) which determines dementia severity level
  • Evaluations performed by certified Therapists (Physical, Occupational, and Speech) and a Social Worker if necessary
  • Goals for both patients and family members (increased family involvement is key to this program)
  • Compensatory strategy and behavioral management training
  • Family Education and training meetings
  • Home safety Evaluations

PROGRAM CERTIFIED STAFF

We have certified speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, as well as a social worker that have an extensive background in this patient population. Our therapists have participated in specific team approach training designed to treat this patient population which helps us see the patient as a whole increasing our ability to help not only the patient but the family and the caregivers.

We also have a neuropsychologist on staff who attends our program weekly and performs neuropsych assessments in order to establish a cognitive and psychological baseline for the individual involved.  Our neuropsychologist writes behavioral plans, educates families on the individual’s specific deficits, and provides recommendations to the family for follow up.
