With estimates showing over 5 million people of all ages are living in the United States with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, many families opt to care for their loved ones at home. At Visiting Angels® Rochester, we support your decision and loved one to sustain and maintain their quality of life at home with professional Alzheimer's care.

Admitting your loved one to a care facility may have traumatizing emotional and psychological effects on both them and your family. We know caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementia symptoms poses special challenges to themselves and those around them and we're here to help. Our professional Alzheimer's care services at Visiting Angels Rochester provide your loved one with the one-on-one care they need and deserve, something they won't experience in a medical facility. 

Personalized Alzheimer's Care in Rochester

Your loved one is unique and so are their needs. Visiting Angels Rochester and their specially skilled and compassionate caregivers are experienced in Alzheimer's care and understand the need for the flexibility in scheduling and services. As Alzheimer's progresses, your loved one's emotional, mental, and physical well-being changes and our caregivers have the experience and dedication to change with them. This flexibility includes the scheduling of services for the weekends, holidays, short and long-term care, and the all important respite care for family caregivers. A few of the Alzheimer's care and services suggested for your loved one in Rochester include:

  • Socialization care
  • Gentle medication reminders

These and the other services available are affordable too. In fact, you only pay for the time and services you need, unlike a medical facility, and they can be changed with a call to our care coordinator at Visiting Angel Rochester.
