Dementia symptoms can take many forms in aging seniors. Decreased cognitive function, increased physical limitations, changes in personality – all of these are indicators that dementia is starting to set in. As the disease progresses, they may need constant care and a compassionate helping hand from a professional. At Home Care Assistance, we are that helping hand in southern New Jersey; working in the comfort of patients’ homes.
Trained Dementia Caregivers
Many seniors in the early stages of dementia only need help a few hours a week, while those in advanced stages may require more extensive care. Our in-home caregivers are trained to help your loved ones with a wide variety of daily responsibilities whenever they need them. Each caregiver is expertly trained in dementia care, with a clear understanding of the moods, personality changes, safety concerns, and other challenges seniors with dementia may face.
Customized Dementia Care Plans Meet Individual Needs
Home Care Assistance understands the unpredictability of dementia and how it can affect your loved one’s quality of life. As the disease progresses, alterations may need to be made to his or her care plan to promote optimum safety and comfort. Our customized dementia care plans can include medical, safety, and hygiene activities, such as mobility support and fall prevention, medication reminders and dosage monitoring, transportation to medical appointments, bathing, personal grooming, and help with incontinence. We can also help with quality of life tasks, such as grocery shopping, transportation to social events, meal preparation, light housekeeping, cooking, and much more.
Cognitive Therapeutics Stimulate Seniors with Dementia
Though no cure for dementia exists, some mentally stimulating activities can help reduce symptoms caused by memory-related conditions and help promote your loved one’s well-being. Every caregiver at South Jersey Home Care Assistance is trained in the revolutionary Cognitive Therapeutics Method, a scientifically-based program that targets attention, language, visual-spatial perception, and memory to help slow cognitive decline. The Cognitive Therapeutics Method is included in all care plans at no additional cost and can help your loved one live a happier and more productive life.
