Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease Care in Rochester Hills, MI
You are not alone. We can help care for your loved one at home, giving you the support you need.
If you have been told that it is impossible to keep a loved one in their home when they have dementia or Alzheimer’s you will be delighted to know that putting your senior into a care facility is no longer the only choice. While dementia care and Alzheimer's care will look a bit different than standard in home care, thanks to specially trained caregivers your loved one can continue to live quite comfortably in their own homes. Comfort Keepers offers families care for their loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer’s, keeping them in a home that will continue to feel most comfortable to them even as their disease progresses.
Caregivers Are Specially Trained
In regular senior care the goals are to take care of any needs the senior has such as housekeeping, companionship, and personal care. In dementia care and Alzheimer's care, clients have the same needs, but they also have needs based on their disease. It takes a caregiver who is trained and experienced in understanding the disease, how it manifests, the rate at which it progresses, and how to handle the sometimes erratic moods and behavior that are a part of it.
In the early stages of dementia, seniors are often still very independent and may not need much care, but as the disease progresses at some point they will need full time care that either comes from the family, a caregiver, or a mixture of the two. The goal of care is to provide structure and safety for the client that can help to keep them safe and stable. Caregivers are also trained to offer mentally stimulating activities that can help strengthen and maintain as much of their cognitive abilities as possible.
The Supportive Role of Comfort Keepers
Many times, the family chooses to provide some of their loved one’s care, so then our role switches to a supportive one where we can give family breaks when they need it. We can also assist families with making homes safe spaces for loved ones with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Confusion and loss of memory can result in accidents or seniors wandering off. We can show you how to prevent most of these mishaps in order to keep your loved one safe.
We Are Only a Phone Call Away
If you need dementia care or Alzheimer's care, or simply help in keeping your loved one safe and healthy, you can contact us 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at (248) 206-0314.
