Allcare Home Health Agency caregivers provide in-home care for clients suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of Dementia who have lost short term memory and the ability to perform activities of daily living. Even simple tasks such as brushing teeth – which would otherwise be impossible – reduce the risk of inflammation and plaque that can accelerate cerebral decline. Simple assistance with dressing and toileting allows sufferers to live their lives with dignity and respect.
Our caregivers play a vital role in maintaining good nutrition for your loved ones living at home. Our in-home Dementia care includes healthy meal preparation. Proper consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables, omega 3’s and folates can sometimes slow the progression of the disease. Our knowledgeable Registered Nurses (RNs) will discuss meal options and preferences with the family at the in-home assessment.
Our in-home dementia caregivers stimulate clients’ minds by keeping them mentally and socially active. We create mind-stimulating simple tasks and exercise, increasing muscular strength and oxygen to the brain. These types of activities can reduce depression and even help to manage emotional/behavioral issues such as ‘sundown syndrome’. By doing this, our caregivers are providing peace of mind and much-needed respite for the entire family.
