Dementia Care in Portsmouth
Tips for Caring for Your Loved One
By offering professional dementia care, Visiting Angels® Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk helps local seniors safely and comfortably extend their home lives. Our support will allow your loved one to enjoy the familiarity of home while they cope with this memory-based disorder. Keeping them at home is the ideal solution, and we are thrilled to work with local families to make this goal a reality. We also have some great suggestions for supporting your loved one through this diagnosis.
Since they may require certain medications, getting them diagnosed as soon as possible is important. Do not hesitate to see a doctor if you suspect they are suffering from dementia. This can also allow you to begin the process of formulating a care plan.
For their physical and mental health, frequent exercise is key. You can support them by making sure they keep up with a regular routine. Walking is a great option for increasing brain function and getting some much-needed fresh air while spending quality time together.
When it comes to your support, it's important to remember that this can be a difficult transition. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to allow them as much autonomy as possible. Tasks like cooking their own meals and cleaning their own home can boost their mental health and allow them to feel more in control. It's best to slowly increase your assistance over time, allowing them to adjust to the changing situation.
Retaining independence is key, which is why the move to assisted living should be a last resort. By staying at home, they can maintain their normal routine, feel more connected to the world and enjoy the benefits of privacy. It's a more dignified existence that makes life much better, and we are happy to work with you to make it happen.
