Memory Home Care services in Bolingbrook, IL & Will County
Dementia describes conditions that include the loss of one’s cognitive ability or memory that disrupts everyday living. There are several types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, mixed dementia, bodies dementia, Parkinson’s dementia, vascular dementia, and others. However, the most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease.
In Bolingbrook, Joliet, Romeoville, IL and surrounding areas in Will County, Assisting Hands Home Care helps elderly individuals affected by dementia through our Alzheimer’s and dementia home care services.
Signs and Symptoms: Alzheimer’s Disease versus Aging
Memory loss is not an automatic indicator of Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. The following are some of the early signs of dementia:
- Short-term memory loss
- Impaired focus
- Repeating tasks and sentences
- Uncharacteristic changes in mood
- Hard time finding the correct words to use
Consulting a physician is the best way to find out whether someone has dementia. Medications can assist in slowing the disease’s progression, but there is no cure.
How Assisting Hands Helps with Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Families can be concerned and stressed upon discovering that a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia. They may be worried about getting their elderly relatives the proper care, but Assisting Hands Home Care is here to help with our Alzheimer’s and dementia home care services.
Our caregivers will provide care, companionship, and mentally stimulating activities for your loved one within a safe, secure, comfortable environment.
Our Alzheimer’s and dementia home care services are centered on the client, meaning we cater our services to them and not the disease. We do this because dementia patients may be at different stages of the disease.
We employ knowledgeable, well-trained caregivers who take the time to know your loved one as well as who your loved one was prior to the disease.
To keep seniors’ minds sharp, our caregivers will provide your loved ones with social interaction. They have also undergone the training to engage clients in memory stimulating exercises, including personal interaction, puzzles, and nature walks, to help slow memory loss.
