Comfort Keepers® Alzheimer's & Dementia Care is committed to preserving the happiness and independence of seniors who live in their own homes.
Among the tens of thousands of seniors we assist, 18 percent have dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Comfort Keepers care providers recognize the challenges that families encounter while caring for seniors with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, particularly when allowing them to remain at home safely.
Our carefully trained caregivers engage clients in intellectual, physical, and emotional activities that enhance the quality of life for elders and their families while complementing medical therapy.

Families who choose Comfort Keepers will enjoy the following benefits:
- Caregivers with specialized training
- To properly comprehend dementia, family caregivers should be educated.
- Tasks are incorporated into the care plan and tailored to the interests of the senior to keep them physically, cognitively, and emotionally active.
- Personal care, companionship, medicine reminders, and family respite care are examples of in-home services.

- Alzheimer's disease, dementia symptoms, how it affects behavior, and how it progresses at varying rates for different seniors are all we know.
Therefore, we develop and implement a customized care plan that addresses physical and mental requirements and objectives. Caregivers from Comfort Keepers can assist with dementia care in a variety of ways.
Alzheimer's & Dementia Care in the Home
Our caregivers are vetted for empathy, trained to assist seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, and given the authority to find ways to lift clients' and their families' spirits.
Our caregivers also use comfort Keepers' Interactive Caregiving™ system to improve the quality of care. We get to know our customers personally with Interactive Caregiving, learning about their interests, dislikes, and even past life events to plan daily activities. This allows us to integrate mental and physical activity simulations. As a result, our clients and caregivers form a bond. They frequently listen to music from the senior's favorite era, read an old favorite book, or engage in memory activities such as going over family photos or discussing current events.
We can give the following services:
- Individualized care plans that address both physical and non-physical needs and objectives
- Activities that are enjoyable, mentally stimulating, and beneficial to one's physical and emotional well-being. These activities are included in the plan of care to improve quality of life and physical health by taking into account your loved one's hobbies and abilities.
- Support with nutrition and fitness programs given by a physician, as well as companionship, respite care, and other needs
- For family caregivers, referrals to medical specialists, support groups, and resources are available.
Alzheimer's Patients: How to Care for Them at Home
When caring for a loved one who has dementia, it's critical to be adaptable and patient. The Mayo Clinic offers helpful hints for daily tasks and caring for someone with dementia, such as:
- Reduce your annoyances
- Be adaptable.
- Make a secure environment.
- Individualized care is emphasized.
Comfort Keepers can assist you and your loved one in implementing these ideas to provide the most soothing environment and improve dementia care plans for loved ones.
Our caregivers are educated to provide Alzheimer's and advanced dementia care that encourages meaningful involvement, fosters authentic, compassionate connections, and follows a care plan that changes as the senior's requirements change.
