Alzheimer’s Care at Home
From the rectangle of sunlight that expands across the breakfast table each morning and the whoosh of the air vents as the heat cycles on, to fond memories of family happenings attached to every room in the house, home is a place of familiarity and comfort in so many ways. For a person with memory loss, research has shown that remaining in these familiar surroundings can play an important role in managing this disease. You want to do what’s best for your loved one, and our Home Instead Senior Care® office is here to help make that possible.
Our Unique Alzheimer's and Dementia CARE Program
Our Alzheimer’s care approach of encouragement and assistance, backed by advanced research and CAREGiverSM education, can help seniors cope with the challenges of Alzheimer’s while enabling them to continue doing what they can on their own. The Home Instead Senior Care network has developed a unique training program for Alzheimer’s and other dementias that is part of its CARE: Changing Aging through Research and EducationSM program. Our CAREGivers provide the highest quality of care, changing the way people live with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. CAREGivers are prepared to provide customized care that:
- Allows the senior to remain safe and calm at home
- Encourages engagement and social interaction
- Provides mind-stimulating activities
- Provides nutritious meals
- Manages changing behaviors
- Honors who the senior was earlier in life
- Supports the family
Most importantly, CAREGivers can provide assistance with enhancing and restoring the simple pleasures of life, such as a walk in the park, a ride in the car to get ice cream or spending time in the garden. Proven to maximize abilities and independence, such elder care activities remain one of the best treatments for the disease.
