- Maintain a Safe Environment
- Engage in Activities that Stimulate the Senses
- Support Family through Changing Behaviors
Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be debilitating and life-changing not only for the client afflicted with the disease, but to those family members involved in that loved one’s care. Our trained caregivers with dementia experience can help you share the responsibility of caring for your loved one.
Maintaining a safe environment for the client, engaging the client in activities that can stimulate the senses and supporting the family through the changing behaviors often seen with dementia, our caregivers can assist you from several hours a week to 10-12 hours a day.
We are committed to:
- educating our caregivers with ongoing dementia training
- striving to only staff caregivers with dementia experience with dementia clients
- flexing schedules to accommodate new, increased and different needs
- understanding some families may have their proverbial “line in the sand” to transition to a facility
- referring to local facilities to meet your loved one’s needs
Through the many trials and tribulations…your loved one asking the same questions repeatedly, your loved one putting toothpaste in their hair instead of shampoo, putting the ice cream back in the oven instead of the freezer, your anxiety about what the future holds especially if something happens to you first, we want you to know that we are here to help, offer hope and give you peace of mind.
ALWAYS AN ANGEL HOMECARE works very closely with our local chapter of Alzheimer’s Association putting a team together to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in October each year.
