When a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it affects the entire family. Due to the challenging behaviors that can often present with Alzheimer’s disease, many families are forced to take activities away and even remove their loved ones from the home prematurely and place them in a community setting because of the challenges the disease presents.
At Aventa Senior Care of Scottsdale, AZ, we understand that an Alzheimer’s diagnosis instantly changes your loved one’s world as well as yours. That’s why we partner with AlzBetter® in order to help families provide better care.

AlzBetter® is a dementia care management system that provides personalized in-home programming and structure for people with dementia. The system empowers families and professional caregivers with the necessary tools and education to enable people with dementia to continue to age in place in the comfort and familiarity of home.
