Alzheimer Special Care Unit

We believe in respecting each person's individual dignity, and in nurturing each individual personality.

Our goal is to maintain the highest level of physical, psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual functioning for those with special needs related to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia disorders.

The Medical Staff and employees of Sanford Care Center Vermillion are committed to provide specialized care to each individual living in the Alzheimer's/Special Care Unit.

We are also committed to supporting the family members of these residents through education and support group referrals. We further commit ourselves to provide care based on the most recent research and advances for this progressively disabling disease.

We strive to preserve each individual’s dignity as they live the remainder of their lives in a safe and caring atmosphere. We strive to make each individual’s day full and meaningful, for tomorrow they may not remember today. Sanford Care Center Vermillion offers an 12-bed Special Care Unit that provides a secure, calming, homelike setting to improve the quality of life for cognitively impaired residents.

The environment is resident-oriented, flexible, and inclusive of family. Individual pride and dignity is promoted, with our focus on the health, safety, and well being of the resident. Therapeutically designed activities encourage the residents to retain and/or maximize their intellectual and functional capabilities.
