How Dementia Care Helps Gresham Area Seniors
Dementia is unlike any other disease, so it only makes sense that dementia care should be unique as well. The methods and techniques we use at Visiting Angels Gresham were developed in partnership with The Alzheimer's Foundation of America. These strategies help our caregivers manage the symptoms of dementia and restore peace and order to the home.
Some of the ways that dementia care from Visiting Angels Gresham can help your loved one include:
- Avoiding relocation to a nursing home or assisted living facility
- Preventing in-home accidents and missed medications
- Ensuring they are getting adequate fluids and nutrition
- Managing emotional outbursts, anger, and anxiety related to memory loss
- Bringing them uplifting companionship and preventing withdrawal
- Providing regular relief for family caregivers who need time to rest
Whether they're helping out around the house or transporting your loved one to their next medical appointment, having dementia care from a skilled caregiver from Visiting Angels Gresham can truly help make daily life easier for a senior with dementia. Your loved one's dignity is important to us, so no matter the task, our companion caregivers perform each and every task with the utmost sensitivity.
Aging in place is a desirable lifestyle for many seniors. For those living with dementia, aging in place can be equally challenging and beneficial. Our services help local seniors age at home safely and comfortably. This allows your loved one to remain in an environment that is familiar to them. Instead of uprooting them to live in a nursing home or assisted living facility, your loved one can remain at home. Being surrounded with familiar items can also bring them comfort during times of confusion.
Another benefit of our dementia care for the Gresham area is its adaptable nature. We understand the changes that come with each stage of dementia. As your loved one’s needs change, we can easily alter their care plan. Our caregivers also monitor their clients during each visit. Any changes in health, physical ability, and overall well-being will be communicated to you right away. We are also happy to work with you and your loved one’s physician to make the necessary changes to their care plan. Our mission is to make our services work for your loved one.
