Dementia Care in Clarkston
If your loved one in Clarkston has recently been diagnosed with dementia, you may worry your only choice is to move them to a nursing home or assisted living facility. However, our dementia care program at Visiting Angels® Clarkston makes in-home care a viable option for elderly adults with dementia or other memory disorders. Our professional care providers are prepared to assist seniors as they cope with the symptoms of dementia so they can age in place for as long as possible.
About Our Dementia Care in Clarkston
When seniors are diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, they usually turn to their family members and close friends for help. As the condition progresses, family caregivers often find they can’t offer the level of care their loved ones need. While moving the senior to a memory care center may seem like the next step, transitioning to a new and unfamiliar environment can be particularly traumatic for elderly adults with dementia.
That’s why our at-home dementia care services are such a lifeline for families in the Clarkston area. We offer personalized support with day-to-day activities that makes it possible for seniors to continue living at home despite the challenges that dementia presents. In addition, our services provide family caregivers with the respite and relief they need to avoid becoming overwhelmed by their responsibilities.
In order to ensure that we’re delivering the best care possible for seniors with dementia, we have partnered with leading specialists to create a series of courses on dementia care. This basic training is available for all of our caregivers in Clarkston, and many members of our team go on to complete advanced certification as well.

We’ll visit your loved one’s home for a free care consultation to familiarize ourselves with their needs and personality as well as your family’s preferences and special requests.
