In Home Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia in San Francisco
A critical support that we offer for Bay Area seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or stroke is memory care in a home care setting. Our home care specialists are trained in creating the kind of environment that is most conducive to helping those coping with the trials of aging and to maintain as much functionality as is possible.
Memory care is an effective way to slow down the process of deterioration that these diseases bring, and involves engaging the brain through puzzles, games, conversation, and reminiscing. The more active and mentally engaged patients with memory challenges are, slower the progression of these diseases. The more those neurological connections are used, the more likely they are to stay functional.
A powerful tool for families, bringing in a professional caregiver who is trained in memory care, coupled with the familiar surroundings of the home, is one of the best ways for families of patients with stroke, dementia or Alzheimer’s to mitigate the deterioration that can eventually debilitate them in their old age. These diseases don’t have to be overwhelming for families of aging loved ones. We’re here to help.
NuevaCare is proud to offer MnemeTherapy® to our San Francisco clients. MnemeTherapy uses everyday activities like singing, movement,story telling, painting and other types of artistic expression to encourage neuroplasticity as well as brain activity to stimulate the brain.

San Francisco Factoid
Alta California (English: Upper California) was a province and territory in the Viceroyalty of New Spain and later a territory and then a department in independent Mexico. The territory was created in 1769 out of the northern part of the former province of Las Californias, and consisted of the modern American states of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, western Colorado and southwestern Wyoming. This territory passed to American control after the Mexican–American War and ceased to exist with the creation of the State of California in 1850.
The first mission was established in San Diego in 1769. In 1773 a boundary between the Baja California missions, controlled by the Dominicans, and those of Alta California was set by Francisco Palóu. The missionary effort was followed by the construction of presidios (forts) and pueblos, (local towns which were to be manned and populated by Hispanic people). The first pueblo founded was San José in 1777, followed by Los Ángeles in 1781 and the Villa de Branciforte in 1797.
