Are there facilities that specialize in Dementia care?

Specifically in the Parañaque area? Meron na bang mga advanced carehomes or assisted-living? I’m looking around for places that are trained to care for elderly patients with neurological diseases like dementia and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

    I do not know any facilities around Parañaque. I think there's one in Taguig but I do not know where exactly. There is a scarce in these kind of facilities because dementia care for the elderly isn't in the Filipino culture, I think. There are a lot of caregiver services in other countries that focuses on dementia care. It's just sad that we only have a few here in the Philippines.

    Thank you, @mandyyanga. That’s what I was wondering, kung gaano na ka-advance and Pinas sa elderly healthcare or basic caregiving knowledge lang. I know here in the US there are facilities for specific cases, therefore, providing the level of care the patients need. Yun nga lang sobrang mahal. Even if the patient has insurance, only a percentage is covered short-term.

    I know there's one in Marikina but for Alzheimer's, if I'm not mistaken.
