Dementia Care at Home for Enhanced Independence
A diagnosis of dementia in an older loved one brings with it an emotional weight. Family members undoubtedly have many questions. When will Mom start to forget me? What will life look like for her now? Can she stay in her home?
While each person experiences Alzheimer’s and other dementias differently, one thing is for sure: with memory care services, seniors with dementia can stay in the homes they love as they age.
What Is Memory Care?
Memory care, or in-home Alzheimer’s care, provides services that are designed to stimulate the mind while also caring for the day-to-day personal needs of a person with dementia. A professional dementia caregiver can be there for small things, such as simply being a friendly person to chat with, or more significant things like overnight assistance and medication reminders.
At Hearts at Home In-Home Care, our care team can provide a wide range of services that enable your loved one to remain happy and healthy at home as the disease progresses, including:
- Errand running and shopping
- Planning and preparing meals in accordance with dietary needs or restrictions
- Creating and helping seniors engage in enriching and mentally stimulating activities
- Helping with personal care such as eating, bathing, dressing, etc.
- Assessing the home for any safety issues
- Recommending home modifications to improve safety
- Friendly companionship to engage in conversation, games, reading books together, etc.
- Assisting with exercise
- Providing respite care for family caregivers
- And much more
Our dementia caregivers are highly experienced and trained in caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Every care team member receives extensive training through an acclaimed training and certification agency for professional caregivers.
Additionally, while many agencies offer their caregivers an average of 10 hours of general training, we provide access to over 120 hours of highly specialized elderly home care and memory care training to ensure our caregivers stay current and confident.
