Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that can affect cognitive and daily activity functioning. Our caregivers are trained to recognize disease stages and to tailor the care on a case by case basis. The caregiver will provide medication reminders, organizing and planning, assistance remembering names and phone numbers, location of belongings, and general assistance with cognitive functioning. In advanced stages, the caregiver may provide assistance with personal history reminders, personal care, toileting, bathing, dressing, wandering safety as well as other activities of daily living.
Caregivers are also prepared to assist with client's loss of ability to communicate and loss of ability to respond to environmental stimulus. Our caregivers understand that the disease progression might lead to personality changes and the need for constant supervision and professional care assistance.
