Care for Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease
Dementia is a generic term referring to a deterioration in mental function that is severe enough to impact a person's day-to-day life. Common symptoms of dementia include memory loss and an inability to execute routine tasks. Alzheimer's disease is by far the most prevalent form of dementia, accounting for between fifty and eighty percent of dementia cases. Our services help people who are experiencing these symptoms by concentrating on the talents and qualities they still possess while also providing assistance with activities that the client is unable to complete as easily as they once could.
How Comfort Keepers May Be Able to Assist
Our professionally trained Comfort Keepers® for dementia care will do the following:
- Assist in keeping the client's surroundings safe
- Participate in activities with the client that can stimulate the senses, such as listening to music
- Prepare meals
- Assist the client in bathing and other personal care
- Support the client and their family as they navigate the shifting behaviors that are frequently associated with dementia
We tailor our in-home care services to match the specific requirements of each individual client, taking into account the customer's current state of well-being and level of independence. The amount of in-home care provided by Comfort Keepers might range from a few hours per week to twenty-four hours per day, depending on the need of the client. Our around-the-clock care is run by a team of Comfort Keepers who provide care to the client in shifts. This provides clients and their families with peace of mind 24/7.
