Do You Have Questions About Our Alzheimer's Care Services in Fremont, CA?
Visiting Angels Offers the Alzheimer’s Care Services Families Need in Fremont, Newark, Union City, and Surrounding Areas
At Visiting Angels of Fremont, we have heard from many clients who fear that a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia means their loved one will have to move into an expensive facility. While Alzheimer’s care facilities are a great option for some families and individuals with Alzheimer’s, there are essential personal home care services your loved one can access that help them stay safe and happy at home. For seniors who choose to age in place and maintain their independence, Alzheimer’s care services can make a big difference in their quality of life.
What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is a specific type of dementia. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are both diseases that affect brain functions like memory, behavior, and critical thinking. Alzheimer’s is also degenerative, meaning that symptoms will become more noticeable and disruptive over time. You might have also heard of Sundowner’s syndrome, another cognitive disease that mostly impacts seniors at night.
How Does Alzheimer’s Impact My Loved One?
In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, your loved one might be more forgetful, misplace items more often, or have trouble remembering directions. In intermediate and later stages, your loved one will likely struggle to complete daily household tasks, remember people and places, and even communicate. Because Alzheimer’s is degenerative, symptoms develop slowly over time. That means your loved one will need care that is adaptive to their changing health.
What Type of Care Will My Loved One Need?
The experts at Visiting Angels of Fremont can help you work on a wide variety of habits, hobbies, and one-on-one home care practices that all improve health outcomes for your loved one. There are social and behavioral treatments, medication treatments, and lifestyle changes that help moderate the symptoms. The specific type of services will depend on your loved one’s symptoms and stage of the disease. In the beginning, they may only need help with cooking, medication reminders, and transportation to doctor’s appointments; as the disease progresses, their home care services might expand to include mobility assistance, personal care such as bathing or toileting, and around-the-clock monitoring. Here is a list of our services for Alzheimer's services:
- Medication reminders

- Mobility assistance
- Wandering prevention
