The challenges of caring for a loved one who’s suffering from dementia can be overwhelming.

What makes us different?
Alzheimer’s disease causes a number of changes in the brain and body that may affect safety. Depending on the stage of the disease, these can include:
Judgment: forgetting how to use household appliances
Sense of time and place: getting lost on one’s own street
Behavior: becoming easily confused, suspicious or fearful
Physical ability: having trouble with balance
Senses: experiencing changes in vision, hearing, sensitivity to temperatures or depth perception
With the supervision of our caregivers we ensure that your loved one remains safe in the comfort of their own home.
Slower Disease Progression
We have a toolbox full of activities specially designed for those with dementia and our caregivers will specialize in keeping the mind stimulated for your loved one. This is important as studies have found that the disease progresses slower in those who stay mentally active. Sadly, institutional settings rarely offer this level of activity, often resulting in rapid decline.
Home Care vs. Nursing Home
The typical environment inside a nursing home is loud, busy, confusing and full of new faces and can lack mental stimulation. Studies have shown that because of these factors, dementia patients who move to an institutional setting deteriorate at a much higher rate than those who remain in their own home. In-home care services reduce confusion by limiting the number of new faces. Providing tranquil and familiar surroundings aids in reducing confusion as well. Having a dedicated in-home care caregiver ensures your loved one will receive the mental stimulation that is crucial to slowing the disease down.
