Located between Doylestown and Warminster, Bristol House Memory Care is a stand-alone memory care community serving residents living with Alzheimer's and dementia. This featured radio interview on WBCB AM1490 was captured September 17, 2019.
A Bucks-county-based radio station, WBCB, 1490 AM, interviewed residents and staff at Bristol House Memory Care to learn about senior living and those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Communicating and interacting with a loved one suffering from dementia can be difficult. But the patient’s safety is the greatest concern, especially if he or she begins wandering — perhaps getting lost — even in familiar territory.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, about 60% of dementia sufferers wander at some point, making this a source of fear for millions of caretakers with loved ones still living at home. The wanderer may not only become confused; he or she may not be able to communicate with anyone, forgetting their name and address and other vital information. They may not even be properly clothed and won’t have proper identification.
