Alzheimer's Care: Maximizing Independence & Stimulating Performance
The goal of Home Instead's Alzheimer's care program is simple:
To give your loved one coping with Alzheimer's disease or other form of dementia an opportunity to age with dignity for as long as possible within the setting best fitting their level of care.
Home Instead Senior Care CAREGiversSM receive specialized training designed to help them work with clients who have Alzheimer's disease or related dementias. This program was developed by the Home Instead Senior Care network as a unique training program for Alzheimer’s and other dementias that is part of its CARE: Changing Aging through Research and EducationSM program.
Through this advanced program, our CAREGivers and CNAs learn about the disease, its process and progression, and the impact on the client and their family members. Our approach of encouragement and assistance helps family members cope with the severe challenges of the disease.
CAREGivers and CNAs also learn specific techniques to manage the changing behaviors, maximize independence and stimulate performance in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs).
This specialized service enables those diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or related memory disorders to remain home longer, enjoying the benefits of individualized care and family support.
Home Instead also offers an innovative program with the Hope Alzheimer's Center in Cranston, Rhode Island. Families who want to keep their loved ones at home can benefit from the combination of Home Instead CAREGiver and CNA services (morning rise -and-shine and evening tuck-ins, with transportation to and from the Center) , with the medical oversight, loving attention, and enjoyable therapeutic programs offered at Hope Alzheimer's Center.
