Dementia Care in Chicago

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, you may struggle to understand how you’re going to tend to their intensifying needs. With in-home dementia care services delivered by a professional caregiver in Chicago, you can ensure that your loved one is able to remain at home in familiar surroundings. At Visiting Angels® Chicago Lakeshore, we’re proud to give families a care solution that doesn’t require a traumatic move to a memory care center or nursing home.

Why Choose At Home Dementia Care in Chicago?

Seniors who have been diagnosed with dementia often turn to their close friends and family members for care and support. However, during the later stages of dementia, it’s often impossible for these family caregivers to provide the level of care needed to help the senior maintain their quality of life. That’s where our care professionals come in. We can help you avoid caregiver burnout while maximizing your loved one’s quality of life as they cope with the challenges of dementia.

Our care providers offer compassionate assistance that is specifically tailored to assist with the unique symptoms and risks associated with dementia. In order to ensure that our caregivers are well-equipped to handle these difficulties, we have partnered with leading dementia specialists in the development of a series of dementia care certification programs. All of our care professionals at Visiting Angels Chicago Lakeshore have access to this basic training.
