Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in Centennial, CO and Surrounding Areas
Since dementia is a progressive disorder which greatly affects a senior’s physical and mental capabilities, caring for someone with this condition requires patience and compassion. Fortunately, Comfort Keepers provides elderly adults with dementia or Alzheimer's disease the patient, compassionate care they deserve. Our experienced caregivers have been trained to help older adults with dementia or Alzheimer's live a high quality, fulfilling lifestyle despite their condition.
How In-Home Dementia Care Can Help
Seniors with dementia or Alzheimer's require a special type of communication. When communicating with an older adult who has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's, our caregivers do their best to speak clearly in a calm and inviting voice. They do so in areas where there aren’t a lot of distractions or background noise that can make it difficult for a senior to understand them.
Alzheimer's and dementia care professionals also make it a priority to discuss one point at a time as conversations that involve multiple topics can confuse older adults with dementia. In addition, they give seniors extra time to process information and use nonverbal cues such as a smile and eye contact.
Assistance with Personal Care Tasks & Household Duties
Supporting seniors with personal care tasks and household duties will allow them to enjoy life in the comfort of their own home. An Alzheimer's and dementia care aide may assist with bathing, grooming, dressing, feeding, toileting, and transferring and positioning. Transportation to doctor’s appointments and errands, help with grocery shopping and meal preparation, medication reminders, and guidance with laundry and light housekeeping can be provided as well.
Customized Care Plans
At Comfort Keepers, we understand that each senior diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's disease has unique needs and preferences. Therefore, we design customized care plans for each and every client. We offer full-time care, part-time care, care for a few hours a week, or even 24-hour care for older adults in the later stages of dementia or Alzheimer's disease who need around the clock support. It’s important to note that care plans are flexible and can be changed as an older adult’s dementia or Alzheimer's progresses.
