We have experience in caring for the following:

ALZHEIMER’S

As the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s is a gradual mental deterioration caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle variables. Symptoms include behavior changes, paranoia, disorientation, extreme confusion, and difficulties with physical functions such as walking, speaking, and swallowing.

FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA

Falling into three subtypes—Behavior variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), Primary progressive aphasia (PPA), and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—this form of dementia stems from a progressive nerve cell loss in the brain’s frontal or temporal lopes, onsetting the gradual deterioration of memory, personality, reasoning, verbal motor, etc. Symptoms begin as early as 20 and as old as 80 years of age.

VASCULAR DEMENTIA

Vascular Dementia commonly occurs after a stroke blocks an artery in the brain. However, other ailments that deprive the brain of nutrients and oxygen (high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol) can cause this form of dementia as well. Symptoms include a decline in verbal skills, extreme confusion, difficulties concentrating, depression, and the sudden urge to urinate.

An individual with vascular dementia may have trouble with tasks such as strategizing, organizing, and judging. This type of dementia originates from conditions that cause severe blood flow restrictions in the brain. Vascular dementia can be caused by strokes or restricted blood vessels.

The human brain relies on a free-flowing circulation of blood to receive the oxygen and resources it needs to operate. If a heart attack or another condition causes restricted blood flow to your brain, this increases the likelihood of developing vascular dementia. Terra Vista is a dementia care facility and community that offers programs, activities, and living accommodations to individuals with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia such as vascular dementia.

Our dementia care community features engaging activities, beautiful lobbies, and healthy dining options. Terra Vista also provides you with its VistaSocialTM app – a platform that is designed to keep you updated about the daily life of your loved one. Schedule a tour of our community to learn more about our specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

NORMAL PRESSURE HYDROCEPHALUS

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus is a brain disorder in which excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) accrues in the brain’s ventricles. Symptoms include memory loss, difficulty walking, trouble with mental abilities such as reasoning, thinking, and processing new information.

LEWY BODY DEMENTIA

As the second most common form of dementia, Lewy Body Dementia occurs when protein deposits (called Lewy bodies) buildup in the nerve cells of the brain region. This causes a progressive mental and motor decline, hallucinations, sleep difficulties, depression, and trouble paying attention.

Parkinson's Related Dementia

Individuals with Parkinson’s disease will develop dementia typically a year after diagnosis. Symptoms include a lack of facial expression, tremors, shakiness, stooped posture, muscle stiffness, and difficulties initiating movement.

MIXED DEMENTIA

Mixed Dementia is a combination of two types of dementia, occurring simultaneously in the brain. Symptoms of Mixed Dementia varies widely and depends on the areas of the brain affected.
