How Our Caregivers Help Seniors Manage Dementia Symptoms
At Visiting Angels, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of senior care, memory care services 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. Basic training is available to all of our caregivers, and many of our home care providers are certified in advanced dementia care protocols.
These services are offered through Life Care Navigation™, a collection of specialized senior care services, 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.
Through our dementia care program, we provide in-home assistance with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship and offer helpful reminders when needed.
Our in-home care services for those with dementia can include help with activities that 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 Visiting Angels
Visiting Angels offers free care assessments to help you determine if dementia care services are right for each client. A care assessment will be performed for each prospective client in the comfort of his or her home. During this assessment, we will outline the foundation for their care plan.
First, we will customize a care plan around individual lifestyle, preferences, and symptoms. If a client decided to proceed with care, we will then match them with a registered home care aide whose skills and strengths are particularly suited to their care needs.
