Specialized In-Home Memory Care for Seniors in East Bernard, TX and Surrounding Areas

Dementia care from Visiting Angels helps seniors in east Bernard, El Campo, Fulshear, Katy and Wharton, TX stay safe in their own homes while getting the support they need to manage their symptoms

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, they will need additional support in order to stay safe, happy and comfortable. A common misconception is that seniors with dementia should move into a nursing home or an assisted living facility to ensure they receive professional care and support. In reality, living at home in familiar surroundings is actually a better option.

With dementia care from Visiting Angels, your loved one can maintain their independence while getting the care they need. We’ve worked with many seniors throughout East Bernard, Wharton, El Campo and surrounding communities in Southeast Central Texas to create personalized care plans to help them manage their symptoms.

How In-Home Dementia Care Can Help Seniors in East Bernard and Surrounding Communities

Dementia is a disease that causes severe changes in the brain. Most forms of dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease and Lewy body dementia, can cause memory loss and confusion. Seniors with dementia also have difficulty concentrating, learning new things and even speaking. Seniors with certain types of dementia can also experience frightening hallucinations and disorientation. Some symptoms will also manifest themselves physically; those with advanced Parkinson’s disease will tremble or have trouble with walking and many dementia patients have trouble with wandering. Overall, dementia symptoms can cause seniors to feel depressed, confused and agitated, which is why it’s so important for them to get extra care and support.

That’s why we offer care plans for seniors with memory-related illnesses that are both personalized and flexible. No matter what kind of dementia your loved one has, we’ll work with you to create a care plan that includes the home care services they truly need. As your loved one’s disease progresses over time, we can work with you to make any needed adjustments to their care plan. That way, we can help them stay safe and comfortable for years to come.
