In-Home Dementia Care for Seniors in Carlisle, Gettysburg and Chambersburg, PA
Our dementia care services help seniors in Carlisle, Gettysburg, Chambersburg and surrounding areas in PA get the support they need at home
When a loved one is diagnosed with some type of dementia, most family caregivers choose to care for Mom or Dad by themselves for as long as they can. Unfortunately, as dementia progresses, primary caregivers may find themselves overwhelmed, over-burdened, and unprepared to tackle late-stage dementia needs without a support system in place.
If you find yourself in a position where your loved one’s shifting and constantly growing care needs exceed your ability to adequately care for them, Visiting Angels Carlisle is here to help. We can provide specialized dementia care services tailored to address your parent’s unique symptoms and needs, allowing them to continue living safely in their home for longer. At the same time, we can offer your family some much-needed respite and peace of mind.
How Visiting Angels Helps Seniors with Dementia in Carlisle, Gettysburg, Chambersburg and Surrounding Communities
At Visiting Angels Carlisle, our experience enabled us to gain a better understanding of the complexity of challenges of caring for those with debilitating conditions such as dementia. To address the need for both residents and family members to manage these types of symptoms, we have implemented a dementia care program with specific services and support.
A major focus of our dementia care program is the ability to recognize and understand symptoms, so we can better help individuals, families and communities manage their care. Understanding dementia is key to identifying it in your loved one and making sure you are able to manage all of his or her needs; this will help ensure a higher quality of life for you both.
We partnered with the leading experts and authorities on dementia to develop a series of programs centered around providing care to seniors with dementia and other memory-related illnesses. While basic dementia training is made available for all our team members, many of our caregivers obtained certification in advanced dementia protocols.
Furthermore, our dementia care services are offered through our specialized collection of senior care services called Life Care Navigation. Among other aspects of elderly living, these services include comprehensive dementia and Alzheimer’s care plans designed to provide clients with ample assistance with a variety of needs.
Our dedicated caregivers help with:
- Wandering prevention
- Mobility and walking assistance
- Hygiene, bathing and grooming assistance
- Medication reminders and monitoring
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping tasks
- Transportation to scheduled appointments and therapies
- Help with running errands
- And more
