Alzheimer’s Home Care Edmonton, AB
Caring for a senior loved one with Alzheimer’s can be emotionally and physically challenging. Over time, your loved one’s ability to communicate and function may decrease, and his or her behaviors may shift and seem unpredictable even on a daily basis. These changes cause many family caregivers to question the future and wonder if aging in place remains a viable option. At Home Care Assistance of Edmonton, AB, our memory care programs are designed to meet the changing needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s. Professional Alzheimer’s caregivers offer personalized care right at home using patience, compassion, and engaging techniques to empower seniors and provide family members with important peace of mind.

Flexible Alzheimer’s Care to Meet Changing Care Needs
Through the various stages of Alzheimer’s, a senior’s care needs often change. While supervision and intermittent help with transportation, meal preparation, and medication reminders may be appropriate in earlier stages, seniors in the later stages of Alzheimer’s might require 24-hour supervision, incontinence care, and assistance with transfers, bathing, and dressing. Meeting these changing needs is essential for health and wellbeing. At Edmonton Home Care Assistance, our flexible scheduling makes it possible to provide the right level of assistance when seniors need help most. Our Alzheimer’s caregivers are available day or night for hourly and live-in care. Schedules can be easily adjusted at any time, and emergency coverage is always simple to arrange with a single phone call.
Trusted Alzheimer’s Caregivers Make Wonderful Companions
Companionship care is an important component in any Alzheimer’s care program. Engaging seniors in meaningful conversation gives them purpose and prevents feelings of isolation and depression that are common as Alzheimer’s progresses. The Alzheimer’s caregivers at Home Care Assistance Edmonton are personally matched with seniors to encourage relationship building and create trust. Forming strong bonds helps seniors with Alzheimer’s better manage their condition, remain accepting of essential care, and even enjoy the time they spend with their caregivers.
Mentally Stimulating Activities Promote Quality of Life
To further enhance our memory care programs, all of Home Care Assistance’s Alzheimer’s caregivers are trained in our innovative Cognitive Therapeutics Method. Implementing this program in an Alzheimer’s care plan encourages caregivers to engage seniors in meaningful and mentally stimulating activities that slow cognitive decline and enhance quality of life. This program is available at no additional cost to all our Alzheimer’s care clients as part of our effort to provide the highest quality care to every senior we are privileged to serve.
