Dementia Care in Fort Myers
At Visiting Angels® Southern Lee County, we understand that seniors who have been diagnosed with dementia have different care needs than other older individuals. Our dementia care program has been specifically designed to tend to these needs through specialized, in-home support. Whether your loved one lives in Fort Myers or a community in the surrounding areas, we can help them age in place as they cope with dementia-related symptoms and risks.
About Our Dementia Care in Fort Myers
When a senior receives a dementia diagnosis, he or she will likely turn to close friends and family for support. During the early stages of dementia, these family caregivers may be able to assist their loved one with aging in place. However, as the senior progresses through the later stages of dementia, they may require the help of a professional care provider.
While you may wonder if your loved one should be moved to a memory care center, an abrupt change in environment can often be traumatic for seniors with dementia. Fortunately, there is another option available. Our at-home memory care services enable your loved one to benefit from professional support while living in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
Our caregivers are prepared to assist with a wide range of care needs and daily activities. At Visiting Angels Southern Lee County, we understand the unique challenges that seniors with dementia navigate on a daily basis, and our compassionate and soothing care enables them to face these challenges with confidence. All our caregivers in Fort Myers have access to basic dementia care training, and we have even partnered with prominent dementia specialists to formulate a series of dementia certification programs.
