"I am a senior, but did not need any home assistance until two months ago, when a received a diagnosis of advanced cancer and began chemotherapy treatments. My husband also has a disability, meaning that both of us really need assistance.
We called Home Instead, who sent a representative to our home to interview us about the kinds of assistance that were most important to us. The first companion care aide they sent us was a perfect fit - willing and able to do the tasks we needed, conscientious, reliable, and very good-natured. When we go out on errands, she is always more careful than I about making sure I am safe. When we go grocery shopping, I drive a cart, and she makes sure the coast is clear before I leave an aisle. It is a pleasure to have her with us."
Laura Ingalls Wilder once said: "Home is the nicest word there is." This may be especially true for loved ones affected by Alzheimer's or another type of dementia. The warm, familiar surroundings of home can play an important role in managing cognitive diseases.
