blue-stick

Whitney Rehabilitation Care Center partners with Preferred Therapy Solutions on the Dementia Program.

This program is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach for the education, treatment and monitoring of residents with dementia. This program is designed to ensure that all residents identified as having dementia are part of the “Just My Journey” program, with a goal of keeping the patient functioning at their optimal physical and cognitive abilities. Residents who have a dementia or dementia related diagnosis, as well as Alzheimer’s disease, would most benefit from the Dementia Program.
