The challenges of caring for a loved one who’s suffering from Alzheimer’s & Dementia can be demanding and incredibly overwhelming. Our caregivers can ease that burden with a combination of highly personalized Care Services.
Develop & Prompt Daily Routines
We recommend posting a written daily plan in an easy-to-find place such as on the refrigerator. This plan should also include emergency instructions such as first contact, physician contact information, location of critical documents, and medication list.
Protect Against Unsafe Behaviors
The need for a comprehensive safety plan is particularly important for a person living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. The disease causes a number of changes in the brain and body that may affect safety. Protecting against unsafe behaviors can prevent injuries and help a loved one feel more relaxed, less overwhelmed and maintain their independence longer.
Our caregivers can assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADL) such as the preparation of home-cooked meals, light housekeeping, personal laundry, and more.
Serious complications can arise if you do not take prescribed medications on a timely basis. Our caregivers assist and remind clients to self-administer their medications.
Mental Stimulation With Hobbies & Games
Continued mental stimulation is especially crucial when assisting those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Although they don’t necessarily slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, these activities do improve your loved one’s quality of life. They can also lessen agitation and depression and help maintain motor skills that aid daily tasks such as buttoning a shirt or recognizing household objects.
Driving, accessing Public Transportation, or even walking down the block can be very dangerous for your loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Having reliable transportation options from trained caregivers can help loved ones as well as the rest of the family “breathe easier and sleep better.”
