Comfort Keepers Offers Expert, Compassionate Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
Custom dementia care plans meet the unique needs of seniors with memory loss
While many people mistakenly believe that dementia is one specific illness, the term is actually used to include a myriad of symptoms that affect cognitive skills and gradually reduce a person’s ability to take part in activities of daily living. Alzheimer’s disease is the most widespread type of dementia, with as much as 80 percent of all people diagnosed with dementia actually suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
As for the symptoms, people with dementia typically exhibit problems with memory recollection, communication skills, judgment, and more. Due to the progressive nature of these conditions, it can be difficult to take care of a loved one with memory illnesses. If your parent or senior loved one needs professional memory care, our dementia care experts can help.
While seniors in the early stages of the disease can continue performing routine tasks and activities, it is likely that your parent will need additional attention and support as the condition worsens. Our dementia care experts, who are highly compassionate individuals trained to assist people with dementia, can develop an appropriate care plan for your loved one, making modifications to the plan whenever needed. This way, your parent will receive adequate care at every stage of the disease.
Immediately after receiving a diagnosis, part-time care may be sufficient for maintaining an independent lifestyle. Over time, it is, however, possible that your loved one will need full-time or 24 hour home care. Although the idea of your loved one needing non-stop care may seem difficult to process, having the undivided support of professional dementia care providers 24/7 can allow your parent to safely age at home and retain as much independence as possible.
Another perk of our specialized care program is that you can still remain involved in your parent’s care as much as you see fit. Namely, you can share your daily responsibilities and caregiving tasks with our caregivers, which can enable you to strike an ideal balance between taking care of your loved one and working or looking after children.
In an effort to improve the life quality of our senior clients with dementia, we offer fully customized care plans. This means that we will assess your parent’s specific situation and come up with the best, most viable dementia care solution for their needs. We will also closely work with your loved one’s medical team to implement memory boosting strategies and improve cognitive functioning.
Before we begin providing our services, we can also help you senior-proof your parent’s home in order to optimize home safety and security. As seniors with dementia are prone to wandering outside the house, we can propose technological solutions as well.
