Alzheimer’s Care in Portland
Our Mission: To Improve the Quality of Life for Those Suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease and Their Families
With at-home Alzheimer’s care, your loved one can enjoy the independence of following their daily routines in the familiar surroundings of their own home. At Visiting Angels® Portland North, we understand how crucial it is for elderly adults with Alzheimer’s to have the opportunity to remain at home for as long as possible. Our compassionate Alzheimer’s care services are delivered by professional caregivers who understand the unique challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease.
Understanding Your Options For Alzheimer’s Care in Portland
People living with Alzheimer’s require a high level of care in order to maintain their well-being and go about their day-to-day routines in a safe manner. While family caregivers often try to step in to help during the early stages of this disease, the symptoms of mid- and late-stage Alzheimer’s typically call for professional support.
Moving the senior to a nursing home or memory care facility is one route that many families choose to take. However, this isn’t the only option you have. Transitioning your loved one to a new living environment can be a traumatic experience for you both. At-home Alzheimer’s care enables your loved one to avoid a traumatic move and enjoy the benefits of remaining at home.
About Our Alzheimer’s Care Services From Visiting Angels Portland North
Our Alzheimer’s care services allow seniors to live where they feel most at ease and provide them with personalized care that tends to their unique care needs and preferences. Plus, we strive to relieve family caregivers of their burden so they can have time off for themselves, lowering their risk of burnout.
We design customized care plans for each of our care recipients after meeting with them in person for a free in-home consultation. These flexible plans can be modified over time to address seniors’ changing needs. Some of our many services include:
- Help with household chores

- Meal preparation and diet monitoring
- Companionship and socialization
- Palliative care services

- Medication reminders
All of these services fall under the umbrella of our Life Care Navigation™ program, which also includes specialized dementia care to address the specific care requirements of those with memory disorders other than Alzheimer’s.
