For the patients of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, as well as their family members, memory loss can be a frightening and heartbreaking experience. That’s why we want to be there to make the process more manageable with the help of our dependable, understanding caregivers.
There is an estimated 5.4 million Americans today that are living with Alzheimer’s disease. As a family caregiver, you already know the detrimental effects. There is no cure or prevention for Alzheimer’s at this time, which makes attentive, reliable care all the more necessary. While you may want to be there for your affected family member at all times, it’s true that life itself seems to get in the way. Memory loss is hard enough without adding unnecessary stress to you and your family members who are trying to care for your affected loved one amidst all the rest of life’s demands.
We recognize that Alzheimer’s Disease is progressive, with the changes in your loved one increasing over time. There is no “once size fits all” when it comes to caring for patients with memory loss. It’s for this reason that we offer a number of services to meet the exact needs of your specific loved one, to make sure that they get the care they truly deserve.
For anyone suffering from memory loss, our caregivers are happy to:
- encourage participation in such activities as reminiscence therapy, puzzles, and games
- engage in friendly, understanding conversation and companionship
- help with menu planning and encourage meal preparation
- assist in organization
