Specialized Caregivers for Memory Loss
The need for meaningful activity and connection of belonging is important for those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. In the early stages of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, your loved one may have difficulty concentrating, processing information and remembering simple items or tasks. In many cases, they may be able to care for themselves for some time but that independence will continue to shrink as the months and years pass. As that happens, it is essential that they be provided with the appropriate level of in-home care necessary to ensure their continued health and well being.
Alzheimers home care is accomplished by working with both home health agencies and non-medical home care companies. Griswold Home Care specializes in referring highly qualified and compassionate caregivers for seniors with memory loss.
Your efforts to assist a loved one with dementia home care can be very frustrating, especially when confusion, withdrawal, wandering, or moody personality flashes occur. You must seek supportive care if you feel unequipped to provide for a loved one. We are happy to speak with you about Alzheimers home care options so you feel prepared when help is needed.
