At Home Instead Senior Care, we know when a loved one is living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia the whole family is impacted and needs our support. That's why our professionally trained Alzheimer's CAREGivers are there to help care for the family caregivers as well as the individual living with a dementia diagnosis.
When someone is living with dementia, things they have been able to do for years suddenly become a challenge. Whether it's preparing a meal, remembering to take their medication or taking a shower, our caregivers are available 24 hours a day to assist them these and many other everyday tasks.
For someone living with dementia, the idea of leaving the home they know and love can be frightening and can lead to heated family discussions. Our in-home Alzheimer's and dementia care allows your loved one to stay in the environment they recognize. They can maintain their routines and you don't have to worry because they are not alone. Our caregivers will keep you up to date on their activities and any changes in their condition.
We know firsthand how emotionally and physically draining providing care for someone with Alzheimer's can be, which is why we encourage family caregivers to step away and let us carry the load for a while. Family caregivers face Alzheimer's related behaviors they do not expect from the person they have known for years. They may see their loved one act out in ways they can't imagine and are not been prepared for. Our caregivers have been trained on how to manage these behaviors and are able to share techniques and resources with family caregivers to reduce behaviors and avoid the triggers that may cause the behavior.
All of our Alzheimer's and dementia CAREGivers take part in our unique and critically acclaimed training program called CARE: Changing Aging through Research and Education®. As pioneers in this field, Home Instead Senior Care developed the highest quality dementia caregiver training program available. We have helped change the way people live with Alzheimer's and other dementias.
Alzheimer's care starts with knowing who the individual was prior to the diagnosis. What were they like growing up? What were their hobbies? Interests? What did they do for a living? These are all important questions in identifying purposeful activities to engage the individual with dementia. Our CAREGivers focus on what is and was important to their client to create activities to make them feel active, engaged and useful.
