Our Caregivers Can Make a Big Difference
Memory care can take different forms for each of our clients. Aging creates many changes in the body and mind, as can medications, long-term habits, and other parts of our lifestyles. Some people may have early onset of dementia, others with cases less easy to pinpoint. With holistic care from Comfort Keepers, you’ll work with a caregiver who can help with outings, games, social activities, companionship, and more that make your loved one’s life brighter and more vibrant.
When you work with our agency, we’ll create a customized care plan that not only meets your scheduling and budget needs, but also meets your loved one’s particular diagnoses, home needs, habits, and preferences. We know that no two people are alike, so we plan the activities and assistance that your individual loved one will most benefit from. That might include walks Webb Bridge Park, a cup of coffee at a favorite diner, organized activities at Crabapple Senior Center, or help with home tasks like gardening or crafts.
Keeping the Mind Active
In particular, memory care incorporates activities that energize the parts of the brain that help with recall, connection, and remembering times, places, and faces. That might include watching family movies, looking through old photographs, exploring family heirlooms, or researching genealogy. Our care might also incorporate games of strategy for mental stimulation, or creative hobbies like sewing or woodworking for motor skill stimulation. All of these exercise different parts of the brain, enabling your loved one to maintain a more nimble mind. When we train the brain to stay active, the entire wellbeing benefits.
We Care in Other Ways
We also offer specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care, for clients who have received those diagnoses. Caregivers who work with clients with Alzheimer’s and dementia focus on emotional health, such as reducing anxiety, managing stress and anger, and encouraging activities that connect your loved one with family, home, and routine.
In home caregiving services from Comfort Keepers can help your loved one maintain good physical activity as well as mental activity. Our caregivers can also help maintain regular medication schedules, healthy meals, personal care, laundry, and more.
