What are Alzheimer's and Dementia? 

Dementia is a general term for cognitive decline, such as memory, thinking, or reasoning struggles. While there are many types of dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common and accounts for 60-80% of all cases in the United States. Although Alzheimer's disease commonly occurs in seniors, it is not typical for aging and requires specialized care. Early warning signs of Alzheimer's and dementia include:

  • Memory loss that disrupts daily life

  • Challenges in solving problems

  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks

  • Frequent confusion

  • Trouble understanding

  • New issues with speaking or writing

  • Decreased judgment

  • Withdrawal from social activities

  • Changes in mood or personality

If you notice these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, you must seek help from a physician or care provider immediately. 

How Comfort Keepers Can Help Seniors with Alzheimer's or Dementia

Our caregivers in Cherry Hill are thoughtfully chosen for their empathetic demeanor, extensively trained to provide care to seniors with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, and encouraged to discover meaningful ways to enhance clients' and loved ones' lives.

At Comfort Keepers, we follow an interactive caregiving model. Through interactive caregiving, our caregivers establish a unique bond with their clients, gaining an understanding of their preferences, dislikes, and meaningful life moments. This allows us to incorporate activities that promote cognitive and physical engagement. A deep connection is formed between our clients and caregivers, often enjoying music from the senior's preferred time, reading books together, or doing memory exercises.

Our compassionate in-home dementia caregivers in Cherry Hill provide the following:

  • Personalized care plans that focus on physical and emotional needs and goals.

  • Activities that bring joy provide mental stimulation and encourage physical and emotional well-being. These activities are built into the care plan to improve a senior's quality of life. 

  • Support for doctor-prescribed nutrition and exercise programs, companionship, personal care, and other needs.

Early Stages of Alzheimer's and Dementia

The early stages are the best time to prepare a long-term care plan for your loved one who has signs of Alzheimer's or dementia. You can do this by:

  • Organizing legal documents

  • Choosing a power of attorney with your loved one and having them responsible for financial decisions

  • Creating an emergency contact list

  • Planning finances to accommodate your loved ones' needs

While caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia can sometimes be challenging, this doesn't mean the fun is over for you and your loved one. Now is the perfect time to bond by playing games, enjoying meals, or listening to music. By creating a routine with your loved one, you will get them accustomed to living with their condition and be able to better support them as their needs change. 

Moderate Stages of Alzheimer's and Dementia

The intermediate phase of Alzheimer's and dementia tends to have the most prolonged duration. In-home care during this stage will require time, understanding, and skill from everyone involved. Throughout this period, your loved one can anticipate experiencing changes in:

  • New emotions, including anger, sadness, frustration, or fear

  • Uncommon behaviors such as shouting, hitting, and wandering

  • Difficulties putting sentences together

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

When you care for an individual with Alzheimer's or dementia, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. Getting help from a professional caregiver can help you take the time needed to care for yourself. Our compassionate caregivers can provide seniors with personal care, companionship, 24-hour care, respite care, and more.

Late Stages of Alzheimer's and Dementia

Once your loved one reaches the advanced stages of Alzheimer's or dementia, they will likely require constant care to ensure their well-being and safety in their home. During this stage, they may, unfortunately, experience difficulties performing tasks that were once effortless for them, such as swallowing or walking, and may also encounter additional medical challenges, including weight loss or seizures.

While it might be your responsibility to care for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia, it is equally important to take care of yourself. Seeking help from a professional in-home care agency can help you and your loved one maintain your well-being and quality of life. Comfort Keepers offers various memory care services in Cherry Hill, Haddonfield, Voorhes, Marlton, Moorestown, and surrounding areas to help your loved one age comfortably.
