Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be stressful, as the disease often presents unique physical and emotional challenges. If you’re caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s or Dementia, it’s alright to ask for help, and who better to ask than professional caregivers?
Our specialized care is geared specifically towards those with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. While our caregivers offer the same assistance as we do with personal and companion care, dementia caregivers are familiar with the stages of the disease, how it manifests, common behaviors that are seen, and effective strategies to adequately deal with it They are also trained in safety issues related to dementia. Care plans are frequently established with a focus on the likes, dislikes, and personality of the individual with dementia. Activities are also planned which have been shown to stimulate memory. Sample activities may include looking at photo albums, listening to music, doing an art project, or reading.
