Providing Federal Way, WA, and Surrounding Areas with Professional Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
In Federal Way, WA, Comfort Keepers' specialized dementia care services deliver superior in-home care assistance.
Dementia is a degenerative disease that impairs a person's physical and mental capacities as they age. As a result, caring for a senior with dementia necessitates a particular approach. Comfort Keepers is glad to provide dementia care to seniors who want to make the best of their lives despite this challenging condition. Our Comfort Keepers, or caregivers, have received specialized care training to help seniors with dementia enjoy a safe and fulfilling life at home.
Comfort Keepers realize that seniors with dementia require a unique form of communication. As a result, they make every effort to talk clearly and calmly. They avoid speaking loudly and, when needed, repeat themselves. Comfort Keepers also speak to dementia seniors in quiet, distraction-free locations so that they have a better chance of understanding what they're saying.
Furthermore, our caregivers avoid discussing too many topics at the same time. They try to talk about one subject at a time so that the seniors aren't confused. They allow your loved ones time to assimilate information and maintain firm eye contact when speaking with them.
Assistance with Personal Care and Household Responsibilities
Comfort Keepers assists elders with a wide range of personal care duties that are necessary for daily life. The following are examples of personal care tasks that seniors who require dementia care may need:
- Taking care of incontinence and toileting
- Assistance with mobility
- Positioning and transferring
We can also help with household chores, including light cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and meal preparation. Comfort Keepers can also provide transportation to doctor's visits and social activities for elders.
There are various activities that might help a senior with dementia keep their mind and body active. Our caregivers urge older persons with dementia to engage in board games, puzzles, social activities with loved ones, light workouts, and anything else that keeps them active and involved.
Dementia Care Plans that are Tailored to You
Each senior with dementia has specific memory care requirements. As a result, a client care coordinator will meet with you and your senior loved one to evaluate what stage of dementia they are experiencing and what types of services are appropriate for their needs. In the early stages of dementia, seniors may only require assistance a few times a week, whereas those in the later, more severe stages may require 24-hour care.
