The warm and comfortable surroundings of home are valuable to all seniors, but perhaps none realize this as much as seniors living with dementia. Familiarity can help seniors better manage the symptoms of this condition, and it can also slow cognitive decline and boost mood. Still, families face difficulty when they consider the safety and health implications of aging in place. However, it is possible to protect their aging loved ones throughout the course of this challenging disorder. Home Care Assistance of Edmonton, AB, offers a solution and is here to help seniors with dementia and their families during this difficult time.
At Home Care Assistance Edmonton, our memory care professionals specialize in assisting seniors with dementia so they enjoy longer, more fulfilling lives at home. Through individualized care and one-on-one support, we provide supervision and assist with daily personal care and household tasks while protecting the safety, health, and comfort of our valued clients. Caring for a senior with dementia requires compassion and patience. Seniors sometimes lash out, their moods may change suddenly, and they are not always receptive to the care they need. Our in-home caregivers are trained to handle the many faces of dementia. They work through difficulties using empathy and love while bonding with seniors to help them feel comfortable with and accepting of care. Our individualized matching services help foster this bonding process by matching caregivers and seniors based on personality traits, likes and dislikes, and other beneficial attributes. Employing this matching service is one of the many ways we personalize care and enhance the lives of seniors with dementia.
The extensive training our memory care specialists receive goes beyond learning how to manage changing moods and emotions. Our goal is always to enhance the lives of seniors in our care, and training our caregivers in our proprietary Cognitive Therapeutics Method allows us to accomplish this feat. This innovative program uses stimulating games, puzzles, and activities to boost mental acuity and slow the progression of dementia. It is part of our exclusive Home Care Assistance University training program and is implemented into our clients’ care plans at no additional charge.
Flexibility is essential for a dementia care plan to be effective. As the disease progresses, care needs often change, which sometimes means an increase or change in care is necessary. Edmonton Home Care Assistance’s dementia care plans are the most flexible in the industry. From part-time to 24-hour care, we are there when seniors need us most and are always available to assist in an emergency. Adjusting the schedule is as simple as making a phone call and speaking with one of our trusted Care Managers. Flexible, customizable dementia care takes stress off seniors and their family members and ensures a qualified caregiver is always available when seniors need help.
