Dementia Care in Nashville
Dementia is a progressive disorder causing cognitive decline, memory loss, and changes in personality. When a family member is diagnosed with dementia, it can change the way you think about their care. The focus often shifts from casual help at home, to specialized memory care to keep your loved one safe. Visiting Angels® Nashville TN can provide your loved one with experienced dementia care.
Dementia care from Visiting Angels Nashville is specifically designed to meet the needs of seniors who are living with memory-related illness. Caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia presents its own challenges due to the changing nature of the disorder. Knowledgeable caregivers from our agency are adept at handling the ups and downs of memory care. We can monitor your loved one and help to improve their overall quality of life.
Dementia Support at Home
There are many benefits to receiving dementia care at home from Visiting Angels Nashville rather than in a residential facility. When a senior is placed in residential memory care, they share the attention of caregivers with the other residents. They also follow a general schedule designed to accommodate the needs of the group. However, receiving care at home from our agency enables your loved one to get one-on-one care from a dedicated professional. Additionally, our schedule enables your loved one to keep their preferred routines and follow their desired schedule.
Some of the dementia care services your loved one can receive from Visiting Angels Nashville include:
- Wandering prevention and safety
- Preparing nutritious meals for the week
- Fall prevention and walking assistance
- Offering medication reminders and monitoring
- Assistance with bathing, dressing, & hygiene
- Household organization and light housekeeping
