In-Home Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia can be challenging to manage. Often times, families find that their loved ones respond better when cared for in their own homes, versus in a skilled nursing facility or assisted living environment. The familiarity and comfort of home has the power to enhance memory care management.
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are conditions which rarely affect only the patient – family members and other loved ones may be largely impacted as well by the patient’s changing cognitive functioning. Caregivers who provide in-home care services for clients with such conditions are especially adept in serving clients and their families with patience and compassion.
