Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease cause a severe decline in the function of the brain, leading to memory loss, confusion and difficulty performing even the simplest tasks. This debilitating disease can take its toll on the person who suffers from it as well as his or her family. It can feel hopeless, but with CarpeVITA’s Alzheimer’s and Dementia Home Care program, you can bring some hope back into your lives.
We work together with your family to design a customized care plan that will meet the needs of your loved one and the family, as well as helping you to manage the stress and frustration that comes along with Alzheimer’s disease. Our skilled caregivers and nurses will manage and monitor the daily activities of your loved one, and even help you and your loved one cope with the disease.
Some of the one-on-one time we will spend with your loved one will help him or her to learn new skills, enhance independence and integrate successfully into his or her community, all of which help to improve quality of life.
Some of Alzheimer’s home care strategies we use include:
- Verbal, visual and auditory memory cues
- Reality therapy
- Validation therapy
- Viewing photos of family and friends
- Redirection of the conversation without contradiction
- Managing aggressive behavior
