Alzheimer's Care Calgary

Everyone deserves a best friend. Ohana Care is certified with the Best Friends™ Approach, a recognized approach to building rewarding relationships with adults with Alzheimer’s disease.

What is Alzheimer’s Care?

Living with Alzheimer’s disease or supporting a loved one who received an Alzheimer’s diagnosis? It’s common for those living with Alzheimer’s to experience disorientation or changes in personality that can affect their quality of life. Alzheimer’s care can provide additional support so you can continue to live a happy and fulfilled life.

Thousands of Canadians are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. MP Fortin joined Global News Calgary with information on detecting and dealing with the illness.

Our care providers engage seniors with various activities and events in a day facility and at home, helping to promote enhanced joy, belonging and satisfaction while improving physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.
