From the comfort of a favorite armchair by the fireplace to the familiarity of each floorboard that creaks in the hall, there’s no place like home. For a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, research has shown that remaining in familiar surroundings helps to manage the challenges of memory loss.
Repeated questions, confusion about people or time, disorientation, neglected hygiene and nutrition—caring for someone with dementia takes a great deal of patience, empathy and love. Particularly as memory loss progresses, this type of care can cause a large amount of stress to a family CAREGiver.
The Home Instead Senior Care person-centered approach to Dementia and Alzheimer’s care, backed by advanced research and CAREGiver education, can help your loved one cope with the challenges of Dementia whilst enabling them to maintain their independence in the comfort of their home.
