Goals of Care

Always Check the Meds First

Always Check the Meds First

Sometimes, the medications ARE the problem, not the disease

Just Walk!

Just Walk!

Even if you walk slowly, even if you walk uncertainly, even if your joints are a little sore, even if you’re a little afraid of falling, even if walking makes you tired, just walk! 

A Call for Greater Dementia Awareness

A Call for Greater Dementia Awareness

 We don’t have to duplicate Britain’s National Health Service and their 'Health and Well-Being Boards', but elders would be so much better served in the U.S.  if we could work toward earlier screening and coordinated care for dementia patients.

Denial and the Patient: “It’s not intentional. It’s brain damage.”

Denial and the Patient: “It’s not intentional. It’s brain damage.”

Every time you feel at the end of your rope. Every time you feel hurt, or out of patience, whisper this to yourself: “It’s not intentional, it’s brain damage.”

Dementia Support Group

We are starting a Dementia Support Group for families, caregivers, and friends of loved ones with dementia facilitated by Dr. Landsverk. It will be held the First Wednesday of every Month, from 6:30-7:30 PM located at Hope Lutheran Church 600 42nd Avenue in San Mateo. Please join us!
