Aging in place is the concept of independent living (possibly with support assistance) in the comfort of one's own home. The choice is typically the home where your mom or dad has lived most of their life or at least is currently living and familiar with. Professional dementia care providers suggest this plays an important for your parent as they transition through the aging process and specifically for those facing memory issues related to dementia. Statistically, it has been proven that having familiar items surrounding individuals with diminishing cognitive abilities like the familiar smells, and sights of the home provide comfort even when mom or dad may not understand what it all means.
Pittsburgh Dementia Care
When hiring dementia care providers, you and your parent will be able to interview and find individuals that suit mom or dad’s medical and personal needs. It is important to remember that your parent is unique and senior home care must meet the expectations of the individual and family to enhance their quality of life.
While aging in place at home there will be constant changes you may need to make for your parent to keep them safe in their home. As your parent’s dementia increases, additional locks may be needed on the doors, or a security system added to note if your mom or dad wanders out. Placing child locks on the bathroom and kitchen cabinets will keep your mother or father safe from the toxic products that they may be attracted to. This is all part of our professional dementia care that our caregivers can assist with.
