Dementia and Alzheimer’s Support

“Dementia” is one word with many applications

Dementia is not a diagnosis. Instead, it’s a term describing a condition that covers over 120 different types, forms, and causes of brain change. The best way to determine what type of dementia a person is living with is to examine their symptoms. 

The medical community is constantly learning more about the varying forms of dementias. In the wake of ever-expanding knowledge, Mountain Valley’s team has adapted the “Snow Approach” to understanding dementia and empowering caregivers with more actionable skills.

Though each person and each dementia may progress differently, Teepa’s GEMS ability-based progression model shows us some of the changes in the brain and in the person’s skills that we can expect throughout this journey.

Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease that has a profound impact on family, caregivers and friends. Every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease, according to information from the Alzheimer’s Association.
