Learn more about our loving Alzheimer's care today
When you first find out that a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia or another memory-related issue, it can be a disheartening time. Many people, unsure what to do, will turn to Alzheimer's care, seeking someone with more experience than they have. There may be confusion and many questions about elder care or what to expect. The fact is, this kind of diagnosis can mean a lot of changes are needed for an aging person. They will likely need the assistance of a professional at some point, especially if they want to remain independent. Thankfully, Comfort Keepers serving Spearfish, SD, has the answers to many of these problems and their professional Alzheimer's care aides are available to attend to the needs of those with memory loss in the comfort of their own home.
Senior Specialized Assistance
As people age, residential senior care is often an option for those who lose the ability to care for themselves completely on their own. In-home aides can provide professional yet compassionate non-medical assistance in a variety of areas including mobility assistance, general housekeeping, and running errands. In addition to these services, they are also there for those who have certain conditions such as dementia or related illnesses. The help that they give for Alzheimer's care is similar to the routine residential help that they normally provide, but it is tailored to the specific needs of those with memory loss.
A care provider specializing in Alzheimer's and memory care can help:
- Prevent wandering
- Provide a routine schedule
- Ensure a stable and calm environment
- Set up medication reminders
Alzheimer's Care Reduces Stress and Strain
One of the biggest things that can help to enhance the life of a person with memory loss or confusion is a regular routine and schedule. This helps to eliminate stress from the environment and stress is a huge trigger for episodes. Without stress, there will still be symptoms, but it can help to reduce or delay the progression of the disease. Stress reduction exercises can be tailored to an individual and as they spend more time with an aide, the aide is then likely to be able to see what works best. The interworking relationship that develops over time can be a vital link to getting a handle on symptoms.
