Senior Care Services in Charlestown, Cambridge, Somerville, and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels of Chelsea, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of senior care, dementia care services must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks, and challenges related to the different types of dementia.

Our dementia care services are offered through Life Care Navigation, a collection of specialized senior care services, each of which focuses on a different aspect of elderly living. These services include a dedicated Alzheimer’s care program for those with Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for 60% to 80% of all cases of dementia.

Through our program, we aid with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship, and offer helpful reminders when needed. Our dementia care services can include help with activities that include:

  • Wandering prevention
  • Walking assistance
  • Transferring assistance
  • Dignified bathing, dressing and grooming care
  • Medication reminders and monitoring
  • Preparation of healthy meals
  • Light housekeeping chores
  • Transportation to appointments and therapies

We will customize a private home care plan around your loved one’s lifestyle, preferences, and symptoms. If you decided to proceed with care, we will then match your loved one with a caregiver whose skills and strengths are particularly suited to your loved one’s care needs. You will have the opportunity to Select Your Caregiver® to ensure your full peace of mind.
