Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Memory Care
Alzheimer’s and dementia clients require a specialized type of care and attention from their caregivers. Families know that dementia and memory loss in a loved one can be extremely challenging, but a skilled and warm hearted caregiver can make all the difference.
What types of specialized care do dementia clients need?
Social stimulation, coupled with familiar routines and recognizable surroundings are at the heart of compassionate memory care. Playing games, going for walks, and talking with others can help dementia clients live happier, more fulfilling lives.
What are the unique challenges of memory care?
Providing proper care for individuals with dementia and memory loss takes a great deal of training and patience. Staying at home prevents the emotional trauma of moving to a nursing home and keeps your loved one in a place that’s familiar and safe. Equally important, constant, reassuring companionship by a qualified caregiver can help clients feel comfortable, secure, and content.
