Dementia is a difficult diagnosis to receive, not just for the senior struggling with this disease, but also for the family who will be there to help provide care. One of the important things to remember about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is that the majority of cases are treatable in the home for an extended period of time, particularly with the right resources available. At Assisting Hands, we are proud to offer our industry leading in-home Alzheimer’s care. We work directly with you, your loved one and their medical team to ensure a high quality of life while living in a safe and healthy home environment.
One of the key aspects of dementia and Alzheimer’s care that must be discussed is consistency. It is important for dementia sufferers to have a familiar environment and a regular routine as much as possible. Our highly trained caregivers will work with your loved one to establish a baseline routine and ensure your loved one follows it consistently. Care providers will diligently keep medication schedules on hand to provide medication reminders, feeding and other important health related tasks. We also work to provide help with any memory games or exercises that your doctor or palliative care specialist may recommend.
We also provide companionship and oversight of all activities to help eliminate confusion while protecting your loved one from wandering, combative behavior and other disruptive events or upsets.
In addition to our specialized care services, we offer a standard suite of care that can include:
- Laundry and linen changing
- Light housekeeping
- Bathing, dressing and hygiene tasks
- Toileting and incontinence care
- Mobility and positioning
- Physical exercise and social engagement
Dementia and Alzheimer’s care can also include assisted transportation throughout the Fort Myers area. This means your loved one will have a care provider to drive them where they need to go without fear of getting lost or injured. Having a care aide on hand at all times while they are out of the house also ensures any doctor’s recommendations or other pieces of information are passed along accurately to any family members or outside caretakers.
