Alzheimer's and Dementia Home Care

Dementia can be devasting for the people who live with it, and for their family members. It’s a problem more and more of us will face, as either patients or caregivers, as the U.S. population ages. The older a person gets, the greater their likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease, the leading cause of dementia. At least one in 10 people over 65 has Alzheimer’s, as do at least one-third of people 85 and older.
 
As dementia progresses, we pledge to preserve dignity and provide comfort while meeting evolving needs with skill, patience and compassion. Our care is tailored to each stage of brain change according to the GEMS® dementia classification model so we can meet people where they are on their dementia pathway and adjust activities and interactions based on their current abilities, as well as the challenges they’re facing. Some of the challenges our professionals are trained to address include:
 
Hearing changes                                                  
Decline of self-care abilities
Personality changes
Anger, aggression, frustration and anxiety
Changing taste buds and nutritional needs
Sundowning
Wandering

Dementia can be frightening and frustrating for everyone involved. The emotional and physical toll it takes on family members can be heavy. If you’re caring for a loved one with dementia, in person or from a distance, remember: You don’t have to go it alone.
