Memory Care Services

At-Home Care for Patients With Dementia in Central Minnesota

Having a loved one who is experiencing memory loss issues is frightening — for both of you. You need the help and support from professionals who you can trust to guide you through difficult times.

CentraCare Home Health offers professional memory loss assessments at home. We also provide guidance for family members who aid in the patient’s at-home care. Our staff works directly with patients and their families to help identify tips and strategies to help patients maintain their safety, independence and ability to remain at home.

Cognitive memory screening is provided in the comfort of the patient’s home by occupational therapists. Screenings assess the patient’s cognitive and functional ability to perform daily living activities. Our team of professionals collaborate with the patient’s primary care provider.
