In-Home Care for Alzheimer’s & Dementia

If your loved one is suffering from the consequences of Alzheimer's disease or any type of dementia, we can help.

While our dementia-experienced caregivers offer the exact same assistance as regular home care, our professionals are familiar with the stages of the disease and common problematic behaviors.

Care programs are established to concentrate on the likes, dislikes, and character of the person with dementia, and actions are planned accordingly to stimulate the memory.

Our Caregivers:

  • Supply strategies that assist you and your loved-one to communicate better
  • Provide safety in the house
  • Help you, along with your loved-ones, prepare for and adjust to ongoing changes

We Help the Whole Family

If a loved-one has dementia it's easy to feel as if you are on your own. Often, it is difficult to know what to expect going forward. That's why we provide advice intended to help families better support their loved-ones, and deal with the stresses and feelings of being a family caregiver. We're also there to turn to if you have questions and require additional resources.

Stages of Dementia

Early Period

In early-stage Alzheimer's (normally lasts 2-4 years), clients are generally still quite independent and require minimal oversight or outside care beyond what a family can offer.

A client might need help with medication management, organization, money management, keeping and remembering appointments, and developing coping strategies to maintain independence. In this stage of Alzheimer's, it's vital to create care plans for the future.

Middle Period

During middle-stage Alzheimer's (typically lasts 2-10 Years), a client needs more care. In this phase, Alzheimer's sufferers may need assistance with activities of daily living, like feeding and dressing oneself. They may also need reminders, such as what is appropriate clothing for the season. Someone with dementia should follow a structured schedule during this phase, which will aid in lowering feelings of anxiety and stress, which is commonly associated with dementia.

Late Period

During late-stage Alzheimer's (typically lasts 1-3 or longer Years), a person will need intensive care 24-hours/day. One will exhibit extreme confusion, with regards to past events and current circumstances. We pride ourselves in caring for clients for several years through every phase.

What is “Respite Care” for Hospice?

Respite care is relief and support for in-home hospice family caregivers. Family members that take time to rest and recover are far better hospice family caregivers. They have more energy and suffer less burnout.

Benefits of hospice "respite care" for family caregivers:

"Hospice respite" allows the family member to rest and recuperate from the requirements of daily care.

Restoration comes from understanding your source of happiness so you can share that comfort with other people.

Occasionally it's giving yourself permission try something new or to rediscover a hobby. By reconnecting with friends, your spirit can be recharged.

Our caregivers are well-trained and offer the family-member the gift of free-time to look after daily duties.

Reasons for a respite care request include:

  • You are sick and need time to recuperate
  • You're physically or emotionally drained
  • You want to attend a significant life event (weddings, birthdays, graduations)
