NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) – The Regency Memory Care Club in Bergen County, New Jersey is making sure people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and dementia are living a full life. They exercise, sing, dance, cook, socialize, have memory therapy, go on field trips and they can get their hair done.
86 year old Tina Haemmerle, who has age-related memory loss says “I love it. I look forward to coming here.”
82 year old Sal Benducci, who has dementia, says if he didn’t have this program he wouldn’t be doing “…much of anything. It’s worth coming here.”
A recent survey conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey found that when seeking a diagnosis, about half of the time doctors don’t tell patients about support programs to help them deal with their Alzheimer’s and dementia.
