The Blue House, located in beautiful Ajijic, on the shores of Lake Chapala, was established in 2009 to provide high quality convalescent and nursing care in the long term for those families who can no longer care for their loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. and a cost that most families can afford.
Unfortunately, more and more families are struggling to care for their loved ones who suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Alzheimer’s disease and dementia can create an overwhelming care situation for most families, so it is impossible to provide long term care for their families without affecting the health and welfare of family care, not to mention the heavy financial burden.

The cost of average nursing care for patients with severe Alzheimer’s and dementia in the United States is outrageous, regardless of whether it is part time, at home or in a nursing home. Families of patients who also suffer from the effects of the sun face even more difficulties in obtaining care options that they can afford.
For these Alzheimer’s and dementia patients who need special care, It is not uncommon to see a very high proportion of patients to caregivers and the liberal use of various types of antipsychotic medications to lessen the demands of caregivers that allow them to " Care for more patients. This model of care simply provides daytime care for adults without taking into account the best interests of the patient. The profits are high for the operators of these facilities. Many of these facilities do not even have a doctor on site most of the hours of the day.
La casa Azul has a different approach. The care program developed by Dr. Martinez is 100% adapted to the needs of each patient with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The patient is the main concern. Because patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia have such unique needs, a unique carving program is ineffective.

For patients who can, Dr. Martinez recommends light exercises with various methods to increase the physical and emotional wellbeing of patients. The Blue House staff works with each patient to participate in some level of exercise.
