Call for a Virtual or In-Home Care Consultation

At Comfort Keepers, we understand that caring for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s or dementia can be challenging at times, especially when it comes to ensuring seniors who live alone are safe. Our compassionate caregivers provide in-home senior care to offer emotional, physical, and cognitive support to seniors. Through our Alzheimer's home care services, seniors can expect to enhance their quality of life while remaining independent and avoid having to move to an assisted living facility.

With our help, you can ensure that your loved one is getting the help they need while continuing to live in their own home. Our mission is to bring a sense of comfort and happiness to individuals, regardless of their situation. It is our caregiver's top priority to help your loved one improve their quality of life. 

What Are the Signs of Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

Alzheimer’s and dementia cause a decline in cognitive abilities, such as loss of memory or the inability to perform familiar tasks, which can greatly impact a person's well-being. At Comfort Keepers of Polk County, we offer services that help seniors who are facing these symptoms. Our caregivers focus on a senior's current capabilities and strengths while helping with tasks that have become difficult for them to complete. 

Common signs of Alzheimer’s and dementia include:

  • Memory loss, such as difficulty remembering events or names

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Impaired reasoning or judgment

  • Difficulty completing everyday tasks such as driving or personal care

  • Drastic personality changes, such as becoming more fearful or angry

  • Confusion and disorientation

Early Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia

The early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia are the best time to prepare a long-term in-home dementia care plan for you or your loved one who is showing symptoms. It is recommended to: 

  • Put legal documents in order and choose a power of attorney with your loved one

  • Have the power of attorney responsible for financial decisions

  • Plan for the cost of care for your loved ones' needs

  • Create an emergency contact list

While caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be challenging, you and your loved one can still live a fulfilling life. Now is a great time to bond by doing things like playing games, enjoying meals, or dancing to music. When you create a routine with your loved one, they will become accustomed to living with their condition and be able to adapt as their condition progresses over time. 

Moderate Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia

The middle phase of Alzheimer's and dementia typically have the lengthiest duration. Offering in-home dementia care during this stage will require time, empathy, and expertise from all parties involved. Throughout this period, your cherished one can expect to undergo changes in the following:

  • New emotions, including anger, depression, frustration, or paranoia

  • Behaviors such as shouting, hitting, and wandering

  • Difficulties expressing themselves verbally

  • Difficulties in understanding words

  • Changes in coordination, spatial awareness, motor, and bladder control

When you support an individual with Alzheimer's or dementia, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Seeking assistance from a skilled caregiver with Comfort Keepers can help you find the time you need to look after yourself. Our empathetic caregivers can offer seniors individualized attention, companionship, round-the-clock care, respite care, and many other Alzheimer's home care services.

Late Stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Once your loved one reaches the advanced stages of Alzheimer's or dementia, it is probable that they will need around-the-clock care to guarantee their welfare and security in their home. During this phase, they may begin to experience difficulties in carrying out activities that were once effortless for them, such as swallowing or walking, and may also face additional medical obstacles, such as weight loss or seizures.

If you are responsible for caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, it is important to remember to take care of yourself. Getting help from a professional in-home caregiver can help both you and your loved one maintain your well-being and quality of life. Comfort Keepers offers a variety of in-home dementia care services in Lakeland, Polk County, Winter Haven, and surrounding areas to help your loved one age comfortably in their home.
