Alzheimer’s care is comprehensive and focuses on the whole body and
mind. As you will learn in this video, Alzheimer’s care involves
staying attuned to a resident’s oral health care needs.
Alzheimer’s care is concerned with individuals’ oral hygiene
because experts have recently identified a link between poor oral health
and developing Alzheimer’s later in life. As an Alzheimer’s
assisted living center knows, periodontal disease and tooth decay are
linked to a bacteria found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.
Continuous care should therefore be provided for both oral health needs
and dementia symptoms.
