We help families find caregivers specifically trained to provide care to those suffering memory loss.
A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia can be devastating, yet you need not despair. There are many resources available so you can learn about the disease, treatments, and how to care for those suffering.
Understanding is the first step. These are debilitative diseases and will impact how a person acts. It is important to realize that your family member is not being difficult, they are just trying to cope with their changing mental condition. Some dementia patients can even exhibit aggressive behaviors.
This can all be overwhelming and that is why you need someone you can turn to for advice and support. A caregiver will give you peace of mind. They make sure your loved one’s needs are met and they are safe. Just as important they provide empathetic companionship that aims to stimulate and engage through meaningful activities.
There are many benefits of an in-home caregiver. Establishing a daily routine is critical to those with cognitive impairment. Routines help them stay on track and avoid moments of confusion or anxiety, as well as creating a sense of comfort. Caregivers also know how to employ distraction to defuse arguments and how to encourage the individual to eat, exercise, bathe and take prescriptions when they are resistant. Caregivers improve the quality of life for their clients and families.
Concierge Care can help you find a caregiver experienced with Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our process starts with a home visit from a Senior Care Advisor who will get to know your specific needs and discuss your client-driven care plan. Then we will review available caregivers who match your requirements, and make a referral. We stay in touch with you and are always available for questions or if your care needs should change.
