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 With Dementia Care
Our caregivers are trained in Alzheimer's disease and dementia care and are also trained to implement Comfort Keepers' unique Interactive Caregiving™ system. With Interactive Caregiving, the Alzheimer's disease and dementia care provider will get to know the senior on a personal level, learning about likes, dislikes and even past events in the senior's life. While developing a relationship with the senior, the caregiver can plan activities that could help the senior simulate mental or physical activities that have been shown to create more lucid thought. The senior and care provider can listen to music together from the senior's favorite era, read an old favorite book or even do memory exercises like looking through family photos or discussing current events.
