Dementia Care from Home Care Assistance
Seniors with dementia suffer from memory loss, confusion and disorientation that can become severe enough to prevent them from performing their daily tasks. In most cases, a family member begins to notice personal neglect on the part of the dementia patient, where their health and well being becomes a concern. As seniors with dementia face these new challenges, they may also experience feelings of fear, anger and even hostility. At Home Care Assistance, we understand the difficulties dementia patients may encounter and provide specialty in-home dementia care for seniors. Our caregivers specialize in providing dementia care at home, helping to alleviate the feelings of discomfort associated with relocating to new care environments such as assisted living facilities. Some of our specialty in-home dementia care services include:
- A customized care plan revolving around physical and psychological needs
- Support and assistance with activities of daily living
- Encourage mental activities and social interaction
- Medication pick up and reminders
- Transportation and accompaniment to medical appointments
- Help with movement around the home
- 24/7 supervision to prevent wandering and maximize safety
Our Caregivers Specialize in Providing Dementia Care at Home
Home Care Assistance caregivers are not only experts in dementia care, but they are experienced and trained to minimize the negative effects and feelings associated with dementia. Available on an hourly or live-in basis, our care schedules offer seniors complete flexibility and customized care to meet their personal needs. If help is needed a few hours a day with cooking, cleaning, light housekeeping or transportation, our hourly care option is ideal. Seniors with dementia who experience more severe symptoms benefit most from live-in care. With home care, a caregiver is at the home to help with daily activities, personal care and provides constant monitoring to maximize safety.
