Seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s can benefit from memory care in familiar home setting
Comfort Keepers of Cary, NC are available to provide top-notch dementia care to seniors in Wake Forest, NC. If your loved one has recently been diagnosed with dementia or, more specifically, Alzheimer's disease, they do not have to move out of their home. Our compassionate caregivers will help your loved one remain in their own house despite challenges they may be facing dealing with their diagnosis.
Nearly all seniors say they prefer to stay at home as they age and there are many benefits to doing so. One of the most obvious is the fact that the familiarity of one's home brings with it a certain sense of comfort one cannot really get anywhere else. For people with dementia, this is especially beneficial as maintaining a sense of familiarity can ease symptoms.
After a dementia diagnosis, many family members agree to become their loved one's primary caregivers. However, over time, many find themselves in need of professional dementia care and there is no shame in that. The simple fact is that dementia and Alzheimer's disease are complex conditions that require a lot of time and both physical and mental energy and that may become too much for non-professionals to handle.
The focus of dementia care is to help your loved one feel as comfortable as possible and manage symptoms the best way we can. Comfort Keepers will work with your loved one to find activities that are soothing for them and help them feel grounded. For different seniors, this means different things. Some seniors feel soothed by listening to music, others love to dance and go for walks. Taking part in these activities can help seniors relax and not focus so much on the confusion and disorientation they may be feeling.
If your loved one has recently been diagnosed with dementia, it is a good idea to start looking for a dementia care provider sooner rather than later. This way you will be ready and informed when the time comes and help your loved one transition to care smoothly.
