Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care


Families of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients can struggle both physically and emotionally, dealing with an array of changes that accompany a loved one’s condition. What may start out as a need for general companionship and oversight will often lead to the need for more highly skilled nursing care and professional support with daily activities. The burden of care can become difficult to manage for families as a loved one becomes increasingly dependent on family to remain active in a safe and dignified way.

Our highly trained clinical experts help alleviate the burden of care by providing reliable clinical support, continuous monitoring, care plan management, maintaining safety, and encouraging the many activities they have treasured their entire life, right in the comfort of home.

Understanding the process

Signs and Stages of Dementia


Alzheimer’s is separated into three stages. With mild, or early stage, dementia, a person may function independently, but experiences lapses in memory and concentration. Symptoms become more pronounced at moderate, or middle stage, Alzheimer’s, with patients having more difficulty performing routine tasks, such as paying bills. Severe, or late stage, Alzheimer’s is much more debilitating and requires a higher level of skilled nursing care.

Progressive memory loss, difficulty communicating, problems with planning and organization, mood challenges, general confusion, and a deterioration of motor skills understandably create a burden for both the family and the one diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimers. Our concierge-level services take dementia and Alzheimer’s care to the next level. Having continuous support from our clinical professionals help ease the mind by providing reliable, empathic and compassionate support aimed at preserving the dignity and safety of our patient.

Common types of in-home services we provide include:


COMPANION SERVICES

When a senior or elder requires a simple visit, supervision, or support with recreational activities.


HOMEMAKER SERVICES

Assistance with housekeeping, shopping or meal preparation.


PERSONAL CARE SERVICES

For patients who need help bathing, dressing, toileting, or eating exercising, or other personal care.


SKILLED CARE

Wound care, injections, physical therapy, and other medical needs by a licensed health professional.

Dementia vs. Alzheimer’s Disease


People often use the words dementia and Alzheimer’s interchangeably, but they mean different things. Dementia is not a specific disease, but a general term used to describe a condition characterized by a decline in mental ability that interferes with a person’s daily life. All forms of dementia are caused by damage to the brains cells’ ability to communicate with each other, which can affect thinking, behaviors, and feelings. Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, is responsible for 60-80% of all dementia cases.

Regardless of the cause of dementia, it can be alarming to see a loved one’s mental function gradually decline. That’s why we customize our care based on what is requested by the family, understanding that these needs may change over time. We remain equipped with a premium level of care, ready to help the family negotiate the twists and turns that are the hallmark of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
