Alzheimer's Disease is always difficult to deal with, but fighting the disease is aided by familiar settings and routines – not being placed in a nursing home. Now, with West Richardson's Home Instead Alzheimer's Care, your loved one will have a fully trained professional at their side at all times to assist in day to day tasks. These professionals understand the disease and how it progresses, and know that keeping day to day routines familiar is the best way to keep the mind intact.
Although no cure yet exists for Alzheimer's several treatment methods have been shown to be somewhat effective. Keeping the mind busy with puzzles like crosswords and sudoku can slow down the progress of the disease. The famous Mayo Clinic's Glenn Smith, MD., has stated that working with trained CAREGivers can be as effective as placing someone in a nursing home.
Home Instead's Alzheimer's Care Program in West Richardson allows your loved one to stay at home during the duration of the disease. The CAREGivers are always thoroughly screened, trained, and bonded before being matched with a patient whom we feel would be the best match for your loved one. Trained in CPR and medical aide techniques, it is similar to having a nurse on hand at all times.
So many elderly are treated with indignity when they reach an age they can no longer care for themselves. Don't let this happen to your loved ones; turn to us, and let our West Richardson Care Program make life as comfortable as possible for your loved one, and ease the weight of concern from your shoulders. No one should be forced to leave their home because of a disease.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
