How much does it cost to send my family member to Nacogdoches Treatment Center? We ask individuals who are living at home with a caregiver to contribute $10 per day to participate in our Day Activity Program. No one is turned away due to the lack of payment for services.

Does a person have to have a diagnosis of dementia to enroll as a member of Nacogdoches Treatment Center? Yes, our program is designed for individuals with some type of dementia.

How often does my loved one have to attend? The program is available Monday through Friday, but the number of days an individual attends is up to the caregiver.

What if my family member doesn’t want to participate in activities? Individuals are encouraged to participate in each activity during the day, but no one is forced to do an activity they do not want to do.  

What if my loved one doesn’t want to come to the Center? It is not uncommon for individuals with dementia to not want to go to a new place. We will be happy to discuss ways that might make the transition easier for them.

What about meals and snacks if there’s a special diet or food allergy? We try and accommodate special diets as much as possible with our snacks. We get our lunches from the Nacogdoches Senior Center so changing what we have for lunch is more difficult to accommodate. You are welcome to send something special for your loved one if the meal provided will not work.

What if my family member gets tired or needs to rest? We have an area where they can sit and relax in recliners if needed. 

What are the qualifications of the staff? Our Program Director is a nationally-certified Activity Director. Other staff members go through training on how to work with individuals with dementia. Most importantly our staff members have a heart of service to meet the needs of individuals with dementia.

Is there anyone at the Center that can administer medications? We are not able to administer medications.

Is there a plan for emergencies? We do have an emergency plan, and each caregiver is given a copy of our plan. 

Is there a place to isolate someone if they get sick? We do have areas in our facility to isolate anyone who gets sick until they can be picked up by a caregiver.

Can I volunteer here for community service? Yes, we do allow volunteers to assist with our program.
