Dementia is one of the most difficult diagnoses for a loved one and their family to receive. The disease is not simply one targeted illness, but a result of many different processes of the brain being affected and altered. At Beechtree Center for Nursing & Rehabilitation, we acknowledge the many facets of every individual who walks through our doors to provide them with comprehensive support in our dementia care South Hill facility.
The road to healing from dementia is not easy, nor is it something you should ever have to walk alone. At Beechtree, we know that it is as much our responsibility to support you throughout this transition as much as it is to be clear and communicative with you and your family about the next steps taken.
Concise and individualized treatment plans are curated by our physicians upon your admissions assessment, working in conjunction with you and your family to assure comfortability and efficient, goal-minded, therapeutic objectives. Our mission is to provide you with the proper tools that re-establish a sense of independence as well as a refreshing dose of social stimulation and connection as we get to know you and hear all about your past, present, and future goals.
If you or your loved one are suffering from the effects of dementia, our supportive and caring staff longs to give you peace of mind and a place to reinvent yourself socially, cognitively, spiritually, and physically. Our Summit Hill Alzheimer’s & dementia care South Hill neighborhood at Beechtree provides a secure environment with an array of social and recreational benefits, in support of individuals with varying levels of dementia.
