Research continues to show that individuals with dementia benefit from daily structure and engaging in mental, physical and social activities. It’s one of the many reasons why Amazing Place continues to be an invaluable resource for those families who are dealing with dementia.

At Amazing Place, we also conduct our own survey each year with our caregivers, to understand how satisfied they are and how well we are meeting their and their loved one’s needs. Our most recent survey results are in and they show that our caregivers continue to overwhelmingly value what we are doing. An amazing 100% of caregivers say they are better able to maintain their loved one at home as a result of Amazing Place.

"Amazing Place has been a life saver for me."
