The Importance of Alzheimer's Services
Our Alzheimer's care services will be customized to fit your loved one's specific needs. Because memory disorders are progressive, our flexible care can grow and change with your family member during the course of their disorder. According to the National Institute of Aging one of the most dangerous places for a senior with Alzheimer's disease is their home when they are alone. It is important to remember that it is impossible to change an Alzheimer's patient's behavior, but you can change their surroundings to be a safer environment. Installing childproof plugs, safety knobs, and an automatic shut-off switch for electronics, writing down important emergency contact information near all phones, and ensuring that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are all functioning are great first steps to making your loved one's home safer while you are away. But with all the various objects in a home (such as medication, furniture, and even the color of the floors and walls) that can be a threat to a person with Alzheimer's, it is encouraged to seek out professional Alzheimer's care to allow your loved one to remain safe and healthy in their home.
