Few families in Doylestown, Warrington or surrounding areas in Bucks County have been unscathed by Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. It is a disease that begins subtly and slowly robs the individual of cognition and memory, all while preserving physical function and outward appearance. Losing one’s intellect is terrible, but the real travesty is the personality transformation and inability to sustain the loving relationships that make life so precious. Dementia makes one physically close and mentally distant.
At Bristol House Memory Care, we want to make as many Alzheimer's and dementia resources known to the community as possible. Below is a family / caregivers support group sponsored by Doylestown Hospital for caregivers in charge of caretaking those with cognitive impairment.

In Warrington, as well as around the metro Philadelphia region, spring is in the air. For those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it is no different. The snow has melted, the grass is greening, and tulips are pushing up. As beams of light penetrate the windows, the sun’s warmth is felt, and it instinctively draws the hibernators to the outside.
Most people enjoy being outdoors, getting fresh air and feeling the rays on the skins. It is refreshing for body and soul. Memory care communities also recognize this need to be outside and how it enhances one’s quality of life. A well-designed memory care community takes the needs, desires, and activities of residents into consideration when designing the building and facilities. Recognizing the importance of being outside, many communities include outdoor spaces that are comfortable and secure for residents.
