In-Home Dementia Care
Care for Dementia Patients
Dementia is a progressive loss of mental function due to certain diseases that affect the brain. The losses can be substantial. Over time, all types of dementia will lead to loss of memory, loss of reasoning and judgment, personality and behavioral changes, physical decline, and death. But the course dementia takes can vary widely from person to person. It's influenced by many factors, including age and other conditions a person may have.
The Dementia Caregiver
No matter when you get the news that a loved one has a painful or terminal condition, it's a shock. We offer one on one, person-centered care with a goal of maximizing a patient's quality of life. To achieve this, our dementia care team attends to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual quality of life, for the family as well as for the patient. Change is difficult for dementia patients and familiar surroundings can help.
In mild dementia, people may have difficulty remembering words and names, learning and remembering new information, and planning and managing complicated activities such as driving. Our caregivers can transport clients to doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping and more. They may also be experiencing sadness, anxiety, loss of interest in once pleasurable activities, and other symptoms of major depression. Our caregiver can offer the socialization needs to ease many of these concerns.
In moderate dementia, judgment, physical function, and sensory processing are typically affected. This can cause problems with personal hygiene, inappropriate language, and wandering. When your loved one is able to get around but has poor judgment or is physically and emotionally challenging, we can help.
