Understanding Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people, often beginning with memory loss and leading to cognitive and behavioural changes. Our services are designed to address the distinct needs of individuals at various stages of Alzheimer’s.

Can you care for someone with Alzheimer's at home?

Yes, it is possible to provide at-home care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease. Taking care of a friend or family who has dementia may be highly gratifying, but it can also be quite difficult. However, it’s crucial to take care of oneself. It’s crucial to keep in mind to be kind, patient, and sympathetic while providing care for a loved one who has Alzheimer’s. 

Compassionate in-home care provides familiarity and security, enabling individual needs to be addressed in a supportive and meaningful environment. In-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a hospital or care community. It can allow a person with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to stay in his or her own home. It also can be of great assistance to caregivers.

To make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, careful planning and thought need to be devoted to developing and executing an effective, tailored care plan. Don’t forget, you don’t have to do it alone; professional support is available if needed.
