When taking care of the older adults, observation is very important. When you find that elders behave differently, there might be something is going on abnormally. Therefore, we have our nursing aides take care the same residents. The care philosophies at DaHn Association are patience, caring and dedication. The elders who come here are treated like family.

In the course, the symptoms of a stroke, and how to take care of themselves are explained to the residents. Thus, in case of a stroke, residents can be sent to the hospital in time. There are also exercise classes that are helpful in delaying disability, such as strength training and cognitive training.
