Dementia Care for Seniors
Dementia care services offer specialized in-home care and support to those with early-stage, mid-stage or late-stage dementia
When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, their well-being will depend on family, friends and familiar surroundings. Over time, seniors will likely rely on family caregivers and the comfort of their home more and more. You may find yourself overwhelmed trying to care for a relative.
Dementia care services from Visiting Angels can provide you with the support you need. Our caregivers offer compassionate, specialized care designed specifically for those who are coping with dementia. This way, your loved one can continue to live at home, receiving care designed to maximize quality of life. At the same time, you will get the respite you need to maintain your own well-being and find time for other important responsibilities.
Benefits of In-Home Dementia Care
At Visiting Angels San Rafael, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of long-term care, in-home care for seniors with dementia must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks and challenges related to the different types of dementia.
We have partnered with leading dementia specialists to develop a series of certification programs for our caregivers. Basic memory care training is available to all caregivers on our team of home care aides, and many caregivers are certified in advanced protocols.
Our memory care services are offered through Life Care Navigation™, a collection of specialized long-term care services for seniors, each of which focuses on a different aspect of elderly living. These services include a dedicated Alzheimer’s care program for those with Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all cases of dementia.
We provide assistance with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship and offer helpful reminders when needed.
Our dementia care services include:
- Wandering prevention
- Walking assistance
- Transferring assistance
- Dignified bathing, dressing and grooming care
- Medication reminders and monitoring
- Preparation of healthy meals
- Light housekeeping chores
- Transportation to appointments and therapies
Getting Started with Long-Term Care
Visiting Angels San Rafael offers free care assessments to help you determine if dementia care services are right for your unique situation. This care assessment will be performed in the comfort of the client's home. First, we will customize a long-term care plan around the client's lifestyle, preferences and symptoms. We then match the client with a caregiver whose skills and strengths are particularly suited to his or her unique care needs.
