Comfort Keepers Home Care in Alaska understands that a family member providing Alzheimer's care or dementia care can be rewarding, but also very difficult and frustrating. Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in the home can be physically and emotionally draining. We understand the challenges faced by family caregivers and can help ease the burden of dementia and Alzheimer's care.
Many of our agency offices nationwide provide customized dementia care for clients who are experiencing symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Our care aides are specially trained and ready to help.
What is Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care?
In general, dementia is a decline in mental ability, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks, serious enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of dementia cases. Our dementia care services help people with these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to perform.
How We Can Help
Our specially trained care providers will:
- help maintain a safe environment for the client.
- engage the client in activities that can stimulate the senses, such as music.
- provide meals and bathing assistance.
- support the client and family through the changing behaviors often seen with dementia.
We customize our in-home dementia care to meet each client’s special needs, taking into consideration his or her health and ability. Depending on the client’s needs, we can provide care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, our team coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families full-time peace of mind.
