Dementia Care Drive

Dementia patients come to the hospital from home or a facility due to various medical needs. Being in the hospital, sometimes for days, can cause more confusion, disorientation, anxiety, stress, and discomfort. One of these simple gifts given to our dementia patients can make a difference for them while they recover and is a wonderful way to show those in need that we care.
