What Our Dementia Care Services Include

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.

Visiting Angels has partnered with leading dementia specialists to develop a series of certification programs for our caregivers. Basic memory care training is available to all Visiting Angels caregivers, and many caregivers are certified in advanced protocols.

Our dementia 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. We offer:

  • 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
