Trusted & Compassionate Dementia Care in Palm Beach, FL
It isn’t uncommon for seniors with dementia to refuse assistance, even when it’s obvious to family that it is necessary. Although watching a loved one progress through the stages of dementia can be stressful and emotionally overwhelming, it’s never too late to seek help. Home Care Assistance is a trusted provider of specialty dementia care, allowing seniors to receive the care they need, without sacrificing their independence or dignity. Care is available on a flexible hourly or live-in basis with no-long term contracts for your convenience.
Understanding the Needs of Seniors with Dementia
As dementia symptoms progress, the complex care needs of your aging loved one may be too much for you to manage alone. Behavioral issues, changes in personality and extreme irritability can put a physical and emotional strain on the family member providing care. That’s where we come in. At Home Care Assistance, we offer respite to family members and have a team of caregivers who are expertly trained in how to care for a senior with dementia. Caregivers can:
- Help with bathing, dressing and grooming to minimize falls in the bathroom
- Prepare nutritious meals in accordance to dietary preferences
- Provide medication reminders and prescription-pick up
- Encourage seniors to participate in games and conversation for memory care
- Offer careful monitoring to reduce the risk for wandering
- Provide companionship to minimize feelings of paranoia and depression
Offering Consistent Care with Regular Dementia Caregivers
Dementia patients often forget familiar faces, becoming agitated, confused and even violent around people they’ve known and loved for years. At Home Care Assistance, we understand that many families are first weary of having an unfamiliar face provide care. While our caregivers are more than capable of meeting the physical needs of seniors, we also match caregivers to clients based on personality, shared interests and common pastimes. This allows the caregiver to create a long-term and meaningful relationship with your elderly loved one, reducing any feelings of uncertainty or discomfort.
Enjoy Peace of Mind with Home Care Assistance
Because of the degenerative nature of the disease, caregivers use Care Notes to track your loved one’s condition and daily needs, and we conduct regular quality assurance visits so the level of care is always appropriate for the situation. Our Care Managers are also available 24/7 for client needs and emergencies. With the support of a reliable, highly trained and compassionate dementia caregiver from Home Care Assistance, you can feel comfortable that your loved one is always receiving high-quality care.
