Memory loss is a very difficult thing to experience. This is true for the individual directly affected, as well as their loved ones. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer Alzheimer’s and dementia care services in Elk Grove Village, IL to help.
Some of the best ways to limit the progression of memory loss is to remain in a familiar environment, engage in mentally-stimulating activities, and participate in physical exercise.
Our ultimate goals are to provide your loved one with a companion, allow them to remain in the comfort of home, prolong their memory, and help them experience a longer, happier, and healthier life.
Signs of Memory Loss
Everyday tasks become increasingly difficult as Alzheimer’s and dementia grow worse. Wandering, agitation, and forgetting to take medication are all early signs of memory loss, while incontinence, falls, and other significantly uncharacteristic occurrences may be signs of advanced memory loss. If you notice a loved one struggling in any of these areas, we encourage you to give us a call.
Personalized Memory Care at Home
Through the personalization of our memory care services, we have been able to assist those struggling with degenerative mental diseases and help them live happier lives. Short-term memories are typically the first to suffer, which is part of the reason why a personal approach is so important.
We focus on the following through memory our services:
- The Client’s History: Learning the background of clients is instrumental in developing meaningful dialogue. Focusing on long-term interests and topics helps individuals struggling with memory loss remain engaged.
- Family Members: Family members and other loved ones are a tremendous resource for us. You know better than we do what your loved one needs, and what they care about. We work with loved ones to develop appropriate care plans and optimize our services.
- Kind Deliverables: Our caregivers intimately understand the struggles of those with memory loss. We will always remain patient and courteous with clients and provide positive reinforcement through our care.
The Importance of Companionship
Many seniors struggling with memory loss also struggle with depression because they recognize their limited memories, feel as if they are a burden on loved ones, and have a hard time socializing with others.
Our caregivers act as much-needed companions in order to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. We are no strangers to card games and other pastimes!
On top of everything else, we provide necessary caregiving services to help your loved one get through their days. We work with the residents of Elk Grove Village, IL and we accept long term care insurance to help cover the cost of our services.
