Help at home for dementia patients

Elder CareOften when families receive news that an elderly parent or grandparent has Alzheimer’s, one of their first concerns is about where their loved one should live.

Many ponder moving the Alzheimer’s patient to a nursing home or assisted living facility but they worry about how that drastic change may impact their loved one who may already be frail.

Not everyone with Alzheimer’s needs to relocate. When given a choice, elders prefer to live in the comfort of their own home so they can live life at their own pace and on their own schedule, surrounded by the things and people they love.

The good news is that with proper support, care and supervision, people with memory loss illnesses can do just that thanks to home health agencies like Home Attendant Care. They have trained caregivers who are available for everything from occasional check-ins to 24-hour live-in care.

Licensed caregivers help dementia patients with medication monitoring, personal care tasks, safety checks, light housekeeping, cooking, errands, and more.

Aside from that type of daily living assistance, professional caregivers also provide valuable companionship for senior citizens who may be living alone with dementia.

Caregiving for a family member with Alzheimer’s can be rewarding, but it can also be mentally and physically exhausting. If a loved one has recently been diagnosed with dementia or if you’re caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and need respite for a few hours, or if 24-hour live-in care is needed, contact Home Attendant Care. We are available as a resource for you!

Our services cover Whatcom, Island, Skagit, San Juan and Snohomish Counties. We work hard every day to help seniors with dementia safely remain in their own home throughout the aging process.
