Specialty Nursing Care

for Persons Living with Dementia

Our Edina nurses and our entire team have specialized training and experience in the field of dementia, which allows our staff to encourage residents to maintain real independence and engage in activities that improve quality of life and reduce disease progression. Engagement can include exercise programs, social events, mentally stimulating activities, games and activity opportunities specially tailored to each resident.

Our nurses encourage efforts to maintain independence and offer support to residents’ families and loved ones who are often struggling to keep up with the changes brought about by the disease.

English Rose Suites has had the great fortune of a long term partnership with Chris Johnson, MD, and team of nurse practitioners at Consultative Health and Medicine to allow residents to stay in the comfort of their own home for medical visits. A variety of specialty services, tests, and detailed medical treatment such as x-rays, lab work, podiatry, therapy, and more can be done conveniently in their own home.

While supporting our residents in our homes, Chris Johnson, MD, and team of nurse practitioners at Consultative Health and Medicine can work and coordinate care with other medical specialists as requested or as needed.
