Compassionate In-Home Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Services for Seniors in Cranford
Having loved ones with Alzheimer's or dementia is an increasingly common. With the current rate of disease expected to double over the next 25 years for those aged 65 and up, finding care to support a senior or aging adult who has dementia or Alzheimer’s may be top of mind.
When a diagnosis of dementia is declared, it may put additional pressures on family members who tend to take on caregiving responsibilities for their loved ones. Trying to care for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia taxes your mental and physical resources. You may not always have the time or resources to offer your senior loved ones in-home care.
You're not alone. You can find in-home memory care support for your loved one from our professional, compassionate team of caregivers with us at Home Instead serving the Cranford area. Our caregivers offer your loved one a variety of services to further support and provide care to help them live a full, independent life.

- Memory support, including Alzheimer's care and dementia care
- In-home senior care
- Home care and support

Senior Care Services to Support Independent Living
Your senior loved ones may need minor help in doing daily chores. Our senior care services support their ability to live at home. Caregivers with Home Instead serving Cranford can assist your senior loved one with chores such as grocery shopping, meal preparation, cooking, and light housework.
Caregivers also aid seniors who don't need medical help but may require a little assistance with personal care such as grooming or getting around the house. When mobility issues limit your loved one's capability to get around their home, our senior care services can make remaining at home possible.
Home Instead’s care professionals can help your senior loved one to stay on top of their medication regime. Medication reminders help seniors avoid the problems caused by skipping medication doses or taking too much.
Whether your senior loved one currently has dementia or not, senior care services keep them from becoming socially isolated. While isolation and loneliness are common in aging adults, for those who are diagnosed with dementia, having regular visits from our caregivers may further support a mentally stimulating environment compared to being alone.
In-Home Alzheimer's Care and Dementia Care
Seniors who are impacted by dementia or Alzheimer's need special memory support to maintain physical and mental health. Our memory care services help maintain or improve the quality of life for seniors afflicted with these conditions.
Seniors with memory issues may struggle to stay in the present. Regular routines can help them to maintain a focus on their current needs. With support from our caregivers in Cranford, your loved one can build a stable, comfortable routine to make them more comfortable and confident in living their life to the fullest.
Memory support also focuses on mental well-being. Dementia and Alzheimer's can make the affected senior feel isolated or lonely. Our care professionals combat these feelings by offering friendly ears to listen. By having someone to share their memories with and build a relationship with, seniors can feel less lonely and less isolated.
Our caregivers connect with your loved ones while helping them to do the things they need to do. For instance, we offer positive reinforcement to help your loved one to take their required medications as needed. Also, our caregivers offer encouragement and uplifting support to help reduce feelings of sadness.
Memory care means more than offering reminders. Our care professionals with Home Instead in Cranford help senior loved ones with memory problems to have better lives.
Companionship Care for Senior Support
Physical isolation from others or subjective feelings of loneliness both seriously impact the health of seniors. Among those over 60, nearly 50% have reported feeling lonely while almost 25% of those over 65 lack regular social contact. Seniors who remain in their homes may not have many opportunities to socialize with others.
Loneliness feels especially acute for those with memory issues. Companionship is essential for keeping a positive outlook and maintaining a good quality of life. Caregivers with Home Instead in Cranford come to your loved one's home to offer a friendly person to talk to and spend time with.
Home Instead’s caregivers can spend time with your loved one by helping them garden, cook, look through photo albums, listen to their stories, play card games, go on walks, or be a companion in whatever hobbies your loved one enjoys.
Respite Care to Help Loved Ones
Family members who care for seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia may need to take time away from their loved ones. You might require time to care for your mental health, take a family vacation, go on a business trip, or handle other things in your life.
Respite care from Home Instead gives you a way to care for yourself without the feelings of guilt. You can feel good knowing that Home Instead caregivers can step in and offer your loved one respite care when you need it. Our non-medical services can help your loved one to maintain a healthy life. Alzheimer's care, memory care, and dementia care are among the many services we offer seniors and their families who may need respite.
