Helping Adults with Dementia
Mind Matters provides day care for adults & seniors affected by dementia and memory loss from Alzheimer’s and other conditions.

Mind Matters offers flexible scheduling solutions for caregivers when a loved one is no longer able to be safe alone at home. Our program allows for daytime respite which supports caregivers who are juggling the competing demands associated with being a caregiver and an active member of the community and workforce.
Mind Matters is owned and operated by a registered nurse who obtained a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree focusing on dementia care. Activities are guided by research and are adapted to ensure each client is functioning at their highest level. Caregivers can have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in a safe, nurturing environment.
Be sure to dress your loved one in warm clothes (jacket, hat, gloves, scarf, proper footwear) to cover skin from the elements. Keep walkways clear of snow and ice to avoid falls and injury.
"Mind Matters is well run. Flexibility with scheduling was great. My wife participated in various activities in full days. Routine was important. The program was very rewarding and enjoyed."
