Home Care Services for Elderly with Dementia in Greater Boston and MetroWest

Unlike other types of senior care, dementia care services must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks, and challenges related to the different types of dementia. Visiting Angels has partnered with leading dementia specialists to develop a series of dementia care certification programs. Basic dementia care training is available to all Visiting Angels caregivers, and many caregivers are certified in advanced dementia care protocols.
