About Our Alzheimer's Care Services
As seniors experience the progressively challenging stages of Alzheimer's disease, they often find that new surroundings and changes to their normal routine can be anxiety-inducing and disorienting. The longer elderly adults with this condition can remain in their home environment, the less they are exposed to these difficulties. Thanks to help from our care professionals, seniors can stay at home even as they experience the challenges of late-stage Alzheimer's disease.
When planning care for an elderly adult suffering from this condition, having the support of an expert and the aid of a dedicated caregiver can make all the difference. While Alzheimer's disease is most commonly associated with dementia, it is important to keep in mind that its effects go beyond memory loss. Symptoms can also include personality changes, emotional outbursts, and difficulties with physical coordination. Proper Alzheimer's care should take a wide range of factors into account.
We can help your loved one in the Harrisonburg area cope with the effects of this disease and build a senior care plan that is adapted to their lifestyle and their symptoms. Below are some of the activities our care providers often offer support with:
- Getting to and from doctors' appointments
