Elderly Care for People with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Here at Home Instead, we believe the right kind of Alzheimer’s and dementia senior care can make a huge difference in quality of life for older adults facing memory loss. Professional help for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s can also make a huge difference in the lives of loved ones struggling to provide the right kind of care on their own. Home Instead can create a personalized care plan including targeted assistance from trained, screened and bonded Care Professionals℠ who are ready to provide compassion, stability and support. Our pioneering approach to Alzheimer’s elderly care relies on establishing a stable routine in the home, providing encouragement and positive reinforcement, and building genuine relationships.
Caring for People with Alzheimer’s and Dementia at Home
Home Instead has years of experience caring for people with memory loss issues and we understand on a personal level how difficult this can be for everyone involved. Our experience also tells us that relationship-building is a vital component of assisted living for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. Our approach to assisted living for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients starts with learning the personal history of the individual and honoring who they were earlier in life. Home Instead’s multifaceted approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care also includes the following critical components:
- Building confidence
- Creating opportunities for social interaction
- Enhancing physical strength
- Maintaining a routine to prevent agitation and other behavior issues
- Maintaining a safe environment in the home
- Managing new behaviors as they arise
- Providing companionship to reduce depression and feelings of loneliness
- Stimulating the brain to engage cognitive functions
Training for Care Professionals at Home Instead
Comprehensive training is critical in order to provide legitimate help for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. That’s why our Care Pros are specially trained on Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We also screen our staff and only hire those who are ready to provide empathy, love and patience to seniors and their families. Progressive conditions such as Alzheimer’s are difficult enough without having to worry about the professionals coming into your home, but you and your family can trust in our dedicated and compassionate team. We know that familiar surroundings can improve quality of life for people struggling with memory loss and their families, and our goal is to keep older adults at home for as long as possible.
