Alzheimer’s Home Care Services:
Assisting Hands Home Care prides itself on developing an individualized memory care plan for each of our special clients. Our staff and family members develop a stimulating care plan using the client’s background history and the client’s previous talents and interests. Alzheimer’s and dementia disorders take many forms and present distinctive challenges. Our home caregivers have expertise in providing appropriate and positive reinforcement techniques in a loving and dignifying manner.
Assisting Hands staff follow the Alzheimer’s Association CARES certification program. A Plan of Care is only successful when the caregiver really understands how to deal with an Alzheimer’s patient. That’s why our trained caregivers understand their behaviors, identify the best communication methods and make appropriate connections. They also understand how to keep them safe and how to minimize risks associated with this disease.
Alzheimer’s Home Care Services are more relevant than ever. Between 60% to 80% of all dementia cases are Alzheimer’s disease cases. In the United States, Alzheimer’s disease represents the 6th cause of death with cases increasing every day due to poor diets, exposition to GMO foods, chemicals, and stress.
At any stage of this disease, family members should consider hiring appropriate Alzheimer’s Home Care Services. Unfortunately, statistics show that family members do not hire these services until an unwanted situation occurs. This disease is more than being forgetful or repeating things over and over. It is frequent to see cases of seniors wandering outside of the house and getting lost, inappropriate behavior, aggressiveness, losing control of bladder and bowel movements, and even losing the ability to chew or swallow.
