Since 1995, the Hope Alzheimer’s Center has served individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related forms of progressive cognitive impairment, and their families.
Our programs are specifically designed to preserve highest possible levels of health and functional independence in a safe, comfortable environment. In fact, they improve the quality of life for people with memory loss, allowing families to delay or in some cases avoid entirely the need for placement in a nursing home.
Peace of Mind for Families
Family caregivers are able to continue employment or manage other responsibilities with peace of mind, knowing their loved one is in the care of a loving and well-trained staff. Ongoing health monitoring and functional supports help in prevention and early identification of serious health issues. The Center is a happy place where laughter is heard every day.
A Resource for Professionals
As a state-of-the art dementia day center, Hope’s design has been frequently published and visited by architects and physicians from around the globe. Its programs and services are frequently highlighted by regional television and print media, as well as national trade journals.
Available to All
Participants at all stages of the disease come from cities and towns throughout Rhode Island and from a wide range of socio-economic, linguistic and ethnic backgrounds. Fees are paid by families, many long-term care insurance policies and government support programs including Medicaid and the state co-pay program. No one is turned away for financial reasons.Since the government programs do not cover the full cost of services, Hope relies on philanthropy to meet its program and facility expenses. We are a 501(c) (3) designated non-profit organization.
