Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care for Mt Airy OH
There are many things to look forward to in life as we get older. From seeing our families begin to flourish, to enjoying our retirement years, there is a lot to enjoy. However, other problems come up as we age as well, and included in that list is Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. Symptoms for these start small, but they can quickly progress if they are left unchecked. Because of this, it is vital those suffering get the specialized care they need.
Two symptoms to really watch out for are confusion and agitation, both of which could be lessened with the proper home care. If your elderly loved one shows this type of behavior, they will be much more comfortable in their own home because it is familiar to them. They will have a better mood and will be more at ease. The caregivers at Assisting Hands are experts in how to care for those who are showing signs of dementia and Alzheimer’s at any level of the diseases.
Assisting Hands is proud to call Mt Airy OH our home, and we love being able to give back to the community through helping its elderly citizens. For most people, they would prefer to stay in their homes as they age. We allow them to do so by making sure they are safe. We offer companionship and can even help them engage in memory exercises that have been shown to lessen the effects of memory loss.
At Assisting Hands of Mount Airy, we’ve committed thousands of hours to train all our home care professionals in dementia educator Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach® to Care method.
