Dementia Care

Caring for an individual with dementia can be an extremely stressful job. Work and family obligations can make it difficult for family to provide the amount and kind of assistance truly needed. While no one can replace family, our select team of specially trained caregivers can provide quality care and help ease your concerns.

At Home Care Solutions, we train our staff to work effectively with the challenges of Alzheimer’s care, such as:

  • Memory and communication problems
  • Difficult behaviors
  • Loss of independence
  • Safety issues

Our caregivers receive a minimum of 16 hours of training annually.  The training is provided by our staff RN and covers a variety of topics related to Dementia, Alzheimer’s and caregiving. In addition to this, our caregivers receive training specific to client needs, for example special dietary or mobility concerns.

Along with our primary goals of client safety, we want to keep our clients mentally and physically stimulated and functioning for as long as possible. By closely collaborating with the family, we are able to create an individualized care program designed to enhance the quality of life of the person with Alzheimer’s disease. We select caregivers who have the compassion, communication skills and commitment to give this level of care.

High-quality dementia care helps give family members peace of mind while providing dignified and gentle care for their loved one. When special caregiving skills are utilized, the quality of life is improved in spite of the unfortunate losses of this disease.
