Benefits of At-Home Care for People with Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is life-disrupting. Staying in the comfort of your own home can minimize that disruption.
Our home assessments determine if a house is safe, or what modifications it may require, for you or the person who needs care.
Staying in your home means being near friends and family, and not being separated from a spouse, as can often happen in care facilities.
With the help of our carers, you can be empowered in your own home and retain your independence. There are many benefits to receiving care at home, including:
- Reduced loneliness and depression.
- Building confidence and enhancing physical strength.
- Preventing cognitive decline through the increase of mental stimulation and engagement.
- Creating structure and a safe environment which helps prevent agitation.
Our home care companions have specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia training and assist with:
- Establishing a daily routine to help create a safe environment, alleviate confusion, and reduce emotional distress.
- Promoting physical activity and mental exercises that align with individual care plans.
- Scheduling and transportation to appointments.
- Healthy meal preparation, including grocery shopping, help with eating, and companionship at mealtimes.
