What is Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s 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 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 Comfort Keepers Can Help
At Comfort Keepers, we do more than assist with daily tasks and help to manage symptoms. The goal of our Alzheimer’s and dementia care is to help seniors maintain their happy and independent lifestyles at home for as long as safely possible.
Our Client Care Team and Caregivers will get to know your senior loved one on a personal level. We will help to establish and maintain routines that can be critical for dementia clients. Caregivers will take time to learn about their likes, dislikes, hobbies and other details that make them who they are. We believe care is a relationship, not a task. We focus on relationship-building and our Caregivers will plan activities that help stimulate their body and mind.
Such activities include:
- Listening to music together from the senior's favorite era
- Reading a favorite book
- Working on a puzzle or other mind games
- Practicing memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events
- Taking a short walk or engaging in light physical movement
