Dementia & Alzheimers
Types of Care
The care of a person with Alzheimer’s or Dementia is ever changing. Whether the person has a mild case or a severe case it can be overwhelming. You need to know the person may not even remember how they act or what they said. The person may not remember you or their own family. They may not even know the day or hour or year. They can forget to take care of themselves in the most basic way. We are here to help. We can place reminders for the person for medication, the date, who we are, who their family is and give them a routine every day that will help reinforce their behavior.
A routine will help them not get as frustrated or impatient. You have to remember they don’t remember. Although the person is seems like the same, sometimes their personality and memory has changed due to dementia. So it is hard to grasp that this person you once knew is not the same. It is difficult to understand how to help someone in this condition so that is why we are here. Our job is to keep them safe and secure and to keep you with piece of mind not worrying about how they are doing. A daily routine and someone to look out for them so they don’t get hurt or lose their way is critical.
