When a patient enters late-stage dementia, caregivers can struggle with the demands of the higher level of care their loved one requires. That’s why we have developed DayBreak, an innovative and comprehensive program that supports dementia patients, their families, caregivers and physicians.
Aviant Hospice team receives specialized training in how to care for patients with late-stage dementia, so they can confidently provide patients with exceptional care and the human interaction they need to help patients feel safe, comfortable and fulfilled.
Our team also includes social workers, counselors and chaplains who work with a patient’s family and friends to help them process their concerns, fears and grief.
At Aviant Hospice, we work alongside caregivers and physicians to make sure patients are comfortable and pain free and ease the care-giving burden on friends and family so they can spend quality time with their loved one.
DayBreak is designed to connect with dementia patients through soothing treatments such as music, touch and spiritual therapies.
The DayBreak program uses holistic interventions, including:
Specialty products designed specifically for dementia patients to aid in tactile and sensory stimulation such as a weighted blanket and stuffed bear
Spiritual and emotional counseling
Touch therapy and skin treatments
