Dementia Care Services
At Assisting Hands, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of senior care, dementia care services must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks, and challenges related to the different types of dementia. We base our services on an individual basis, treating based on the person and not the disease.
We also offer Alzheimer’s care for those with Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for 60% to 80% of all cases of dementia.
Through our dementia care program, we provide assistance with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship, and offer helpful reminders when needed. Our dementia care services can include help with activities that include:
- Wandering prevention
- Walking assistance
- Transferring assistance

- Medication reminders and monitoring
- Preparation of healthy meals
- Light housekeeping chores
- Transportation to appointments and therapies
