What is Dementia Care, Exactly?
Dementia is generally defined as a mental decline severe enough to interfere with a person's daily activities, such as memory loss or an inability to complete familiar tasks. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, accounting for 50 to 80 percent of all cases of dementia. Our dementia care services assist people who are experiencing these symptoms by focusing on their remaining abilities and strengths while assisting with tasks that have become difficult for the client to complete.
How Do Comfort Keepers Help Seniors With Dementia?
Our caregivers are specifically trained to help with any and all tasks needed to serve seniors with Alzheimer's or dementia. We have some core guidelines that we follow in order to provide our patients with the best possible dementia care. Those guidelines are as follows:
- A particular form of communication is necessary for seniors who have dementia or Alzheimer's. Our caregivers try their best to speak clearly and in a soothing, friendly voice when conversing with an older adult who has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's.
Customized Care Plans
- At Comfort Keepers, we understand that each senior diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease has unique needs and preferences. Therefore, we design individualized care plans for each and every client. We offer full-time care, part-time care, care for a few hours a week, or even 24-hour care for older adults
Assistance with Personal Care Tasks and Daily Living Activities
- Supporting seniors with personal care tasks and household duties will allow them to enjoy life in the comfort of their own homes. A compassionate care provider may assist with bathing, grooming, dressing, feeding, toileting, transferring and positioning.
