Trained Alzheimer's CAREGivers
Our trained CAREGivers bring the following skills and support to families of those with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia:
- Capturing Life’s JourneySM – Gathering past stories and experiences helps the CAREGiver give comfort and customized care; all the while honoring who the senior was earlier in life.
- Techniques to Manage Behavior – CAREGivers use techniques such as giving simple choices and redirecting, allowing the senior to remain calm and safe at home.
- Encouraging Engagement – Engaging seniors throughout the day builds self-esteem, enhances physical strength and reduces behaviors that need to be managed. Using techniques and activities, CAREGivers focus on the seniors’ mind, body and soul.
Supporting the Family – CAREGivers understand the struggles and challenges that accompany caring for a loved one. They are trained to work closely with the family and have open communication, which results in quality Alzheimer's treatment for the senior.
Alzheimer's Treatment Approach
Home Instead CAREGivers trained in the CARE program have a passion and desire to work with Alzheimer’s or dementia clients. They receive ongoing classroom training and testing prior to caring for a senior with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
CAREGivers receive this training in addition to a multi-phased safety and caregiving education program, so you can rest assured your loved one is with a trusted, well-qualified professional.
