Any person who is dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other similar forms of cognitive impairment has surely been through a lot. For those who suffer from this kind of illness, it is unimaginable to move out of the familiar environment of home. This is the last thing you want to do to your loved ones but keeping them at home poses other challenges. It involves round-the-clock care and supervision which can be quite a daunting task for any family member.
Fortunately, you can still keep your loved ones at home. Inspired Home Healthcare offers care for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease and similar conditions.
Our approach to care addresses two critical aspects:
Helping the Patient Cope with Alzheimer’s
It is quite common for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease patients to wander out of the house and get lost. Sometimes, they might lose their balance, fall down, and get injured. These are serious safety risks and therefore warrant the appropriate level of supervision from care providers. Our staff members have been thoroughly trained in handling situations like these. They are also capable of addressing behavioral issues like irritability, isolation, depression, forgetfulness / repeating statements, and incontinence.
Helping Family Members Adjust to the Challenges
It is not just the patient who suffers from dementia. Family members are forced to rapidly adjust their schedules, priorities, and lifestyle as their loved one goes through the ordeal. Often, family caregivers spend sleepless nights with the fear that their loved one might wander out of the home, get disoriented, and get lost.
