Professional Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in Federal Way, WA
Comfort Keepers' specialized dementia care provides quality in home care assistance
Dementia is a progressive condition that can hinder an older adult’s physical and mental capabilities. Therefore, caring for a senior with dementia requires a unique type of care. Comfort Keepers is pleased to offer dementia care to senior citizens who would like to make the most out of their life despite this difficult disorder. Our caregivers or Comfort Keepers have received specialized training that can make it easier for dementia seniors to live a safe and quality life at home.
Comfort Keepers who specialize in dementia care know that seniors with dementia require a special type of communication. For this reason, they make every effort to speak in a clear and calm voice. They avoid speaking loudly and repeat themselves whenever necessary. Comfort Keepers also speak to dementia seniors in environments with little noise or distractions so that they have a greater chance of understanding them.
In addition, our caregivers stay away from talking about too many things at one time. They try to discuss one point at a time so that seniors do not get confused. When speaking to seniors, they give them time to process information and make excellent eye contact.
Support with Personal Care & Household Responsibilities
Comfort Keepers supports seniors with a variety of personal care tasks that are essential for daily living. These personal care tasks include:
- Toileting and incontinence care
- Mobility assistance
- Transferring and positioning
We can also assist with household responsibilities such as light housekeeping, laundry, grocery shopping, and meal preparation. Comfort Keepers provide seniors with rides to doctor’s appointments and social events as well.
Promotion of Fun Activities
There are many activities that can stimulate the mind and body of a senior with dementia. Comfort Keepers who provide dementia care encourage older adults with dementia to participate in board games, puzzles, social activities with loved ones, light exercises, and anything else that will keep them active and engaged.
Individualized Dementia Care Plans
Every senior with dementia has unique memory care needs. For this reason, a client care coordinator will meet with you and your older loved one to determine what stage of dementia your senior is in and what types of services make sense for his or her situation. Older adults in the early stages of dementia may only require care a few times a week while seniors in the later, more serious stages need full-time or round-the-clock care.
