Visiting Angels Provides In-Home Dementia Care to Seniors in Lancaster, Lititz, Elizabethtown, and Surrounding Areas

For seniors, the diagnosis of a new health condition can be an expected part of going through your golden years. But when that condition is Alzheimer’s or dementia, it can be a scary moment for the whole family. At Visiting Angels of Lancaster, we know that every family wants the best for their aging loved ones. It is our job to help your senior loved one attain their best possible quality of life, from the safety and comfort of their own home.

In Home Care for Dementia

If a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or another degenerative disease, many families assume they will have to move into an institutional facility for care. In fact, familiar surroundings and the comforts of home can be important to your loved one’s emotional health. Our in-home dementia care services can help you identify any hazards in your loved one’s home for slips, trips, or accidents, while preserving the nostalgia, experiences, and connections to family that are so important to your loved one’s daily life.

Daily Assistance for Dementia

Daily dementia care services are designed to help your loved one maintain a clean, safe, and familiar home environment. Your loved one’s care plan might include more intensive assistance, like help with mobility, transportation to medical appointments or day centers, and personal care including bathing, grooming, and toileting. A Visiting Angel can assist your loved one with daily tasks like laundry, linens changing, meal preparation, getting the mail, and medication reminders.

Working with Your Loved One’s Medical Team

It is important to find dementia care that works in tandem with your loved one’s doctors. Our in-home dementia services will reinforce advice from your loved one’s doctor, while working to decrease your loved one’s risk of accident, injury, and illness. We can help your loved one stick to dietary guidelines from their doctor, physical therapy regimens, attending medical appointments, and more. If you cannot attend a doctor’s appointment, a caregiver can accompany your loved one and provide you with the details later that day. Our goal is to provide comprehensive assistance that your loved one can rely on to achieve their best health.

Creating a Healthy Routine

Another important aspect of dementia care is creating a stable, healthy, and comforting daily schedule for your loved one. Having a routine increases feelings of security and well-being, while also establishing healthy habits like sticking to your medication schedule, regular meals, and getting regular rest. We will work with you to build a daily plan that is right for your loved one’s needs, preferences, habits, and abilities.
